There is no audition for general membership in the University Band. If you are willing to commit to the band, the band will commit to you! However, auditions are required for our advanced ensembles and Performing Arts Magnet.

Performing Arts Magnet Auditions

February 6-8, 20

This audition is for acceptance into the Performing Arts Magnet only. Once accepted, magnet students will then need to complete an Ensemble Placement Audition in May.

Ensemble Placement Auditions


This audition is to make sure you are placed in the class that best suits your performance abilities. All auditions for the 2023-2024 school year will be held in person.

See below for specific requirements.

Performing Arts Magnet
