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.
