Illegitimum non carborundum

Fall 2021 Auditions

Auditions for the Band are very informal. They are an opportunity for the Band to get to know you and to welcome you into the organization. Importantly, there is no need to sweat. We will ask you to play some scales, followed by a little sightreading of a Harvard fightsong, and a piece of your choice. 

You may also consider joining the Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band. We will be doing joint auditions with Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band. You can find more information on the Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band websites. In the past, for Wind Ensemble, you would also prepare a short piece of your choice. For the Jazz Band, you would play a jazz tune or head of your choosing, sight reading 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 Selorm Quarshie at 

All auditions will take place at 74 Mount Auburn Street. If you need additional directions, please contact Selorm.   

We will be holding joint auditions with Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band on Saturday, September 4th & Sunday, September 5th. 

The Band will also hold auditions the following weekend on Saturday, September 11th & Sunday, September 12th. Please sign-up for an audition time below. We are pretty flexible so please reach out if you are interested in auditioning but these times do not work for you.
