Music Auditions

Music Ensemble Auditions

All students (not just music majors) are welcome to perform in a variety of music ensembles, audition for select touring ensembles, take courses in a wide variety of musical topics, minor in music and apply for music scholarships.

Auditions are held at the beginning of the academic year. Please click on the ensemble in which you are interested in auditioning to be directed to audition times. Then, click on an open appointment slot to sign up (if there is no active link, this means we don't currently have any appointments available). To cancel an appointment slot you've already booked, leave this sign-up page and delete the event from your own Google calendar.

Choral Ensembles

Please be prepared to sight-sing a short example provided to you, perform a range/tone check, and sing a well-known song like "My Country tis of Thee" or "The Star-Spangled Banner." For more information about Choral Ensembles, contact Dr. Bret Amundson at bamundson@css.edu.
