Pit Auditions for “West Side Story”

 

After-school Thursday, January 3, 2008

 

(Be prepared to stay for a while!)

Students may audition for multiple instruments!

Rehearsals will take place after-school beginning in February

 

AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTATION

Piccolo, Flute, Eb Clarinet, Bb Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, French Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Violin, Cello, Bass, Synthesizer, Piano, Electric/Acoustic Guitar, Xylophone, Vibraphone, Drum Set, Tympani, Auxiliary Percussion

 

AUDITION REQUIREMENTS

  1. All instrumentalists will be asked to perform a prepared solo, 1 – 2 minutes in length, which best exhibits your prowess and talent on your instrument. This solo can be of any style but should be a challenging solo equal in difficulty to a district level piece.

  2. All instrumentalists will be required to sight-read a short selection from either the musical or a passage similar in style to Bernstein’s score.

  3. THIS IS THE ONLY DATE FOR AUDITIONS!!! MAKE YOURSELF AVAILABLE IF YOU ARE NOT!!! We need to know what instruments we will not have for the show in order to start to hire professional sit-ins. Therefore we need to know immediately what our student instrumentation is! For students with scheduling difficulties, I will try to help by allowing you to audition either earlier or later, depending upon your schedule. However you must audition after school on this date!

 

RESULT ANNOUNCEMENTS

You will be asked to provide your email address at the audition on the judges’ sheets. Results will be emailed to all participants over the weekend and posted in front of the band room on Monday, January 7, 2008!

 

ALL ACCEPTED STUDENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO MAKE ALL REHEARSALS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF 2 WEEK OR EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION.
