Jazz Auditions - Spring 2023

Jazz Auditions for Spring 2023 will be held in person during the first week of classes starting on 1/18, in room 119a of the SDSU Music Building.  Please follow current SDSU policy for masking.

 

Sign up for a time-slot here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b044faaaf2babfd0-sp23#/
If you plan to play your junior level jury, please sign up for two slots in a row.

 

You MUST fill out an audition form with your personal info (name/cell/email) and your class schedule. These will be provided onsite.

 

If you are auditioning for a combo, prepare one piece of standard jazz repertoire – play the melody, then improvise.  If your selection is “obscure” be sure to bring a C treble copy for the accompanist.

 

Additionally, everyone will sightread selections to be provided during the audition.  Audition results will be posted here https://music.sdsu.edu/index.php/jazz/ensembles by Friday evening, 1/20.

 

 

All ensembles and combos will begin meeting in person to rehearse on the week of Monday 1/23.

 

Thank you for auditioning for Jazz groups!
