Some instruments have a single day audition that takes place on Wednesday only or Thursday only. Other instruments with high audition numbers will have a phased audition. Meaning all students will audition on Wednesday, then a percentage of students will advance to the Thursday round.

Please see below to find out when your student needs to attend. Student check in is from 5 pm - 6 pm. Please arrive promptly. Once check in closes, students will not be allowed to audition. Each instrument audition ends at different unschedule times. During the auditions, students cannot have their phones on.
