Auditions for the Band are very informal, and you can audition at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org! We see auditions as an opportunity for the Band to get to know you and to welcome you into the organization. Importantly, there is no need to sweat—anyone who wants to join can join. If you play an instrument, we will ask you to play a scale and sightread a Harvard fight song. If you don't play an instrument, we'll teach you! Note that you do not need to own an instrument—you can borrow one from the Band.
You may also consider joining the Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band. We do joint auditions with Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band in the fall. You can find more information on the Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band websites. For Wind Ensemble, you should prepare a short piece of your choice. For the Jazz Band, you should play a jazz tune or head of your choosing, you'll sight read excerpts from big band charts, and if you wish, you can also improvise over a piece of your choosing.
If you have any questions, feel free to email Luke Jackson at email@example.com.
All auditions will take place at 74 Mount Auburn Street. If you need additional directions, please contact Luke Jackson.
