2017 High School Honors Band Audition Music
All EKU High School Honor Band participants are required to play an audition, which will take place following check-in. The results of this audition will determine which ensemble each participant will be placed into, as well as chair placement within that ensemble.
Auditions for Wind and Brass players will consist of two parts:
1. Scales: Each participant will be asked to play a full-range chromatic scale and up to three major scales, selected from the following: C, G, F, Bb, Eb, Ab, Db (concert pitches). Memorization is encouraged, but not required.
2. Prepared piece:
Euphonium (bass clef)
Euphonium (treble clef)
String Bass (placement by dir. rec.)
Percussion (prepare all)
WHAT TO BRING TO AUDITIONS
• Woodwinds and Brass: Your instrument and prepared piece.
• Percussionists: Snare sticks, keyboard mallets, and timpani mallets. You will not need to bring drums.
