Auditioning for
Symphonic Wind Ensemble
and Concert Band

Participation in the WSU Concert Band and/or the Symphonic Wind Ensemble is by audition. The audition process is friendly and non-threatening.  Auditions generally are for band placement, either Concert Band or Symphonic Wind Ensemble, and for part assignment.  The goal of the WSU Bands is to include every one and exclude no one.  Auditions take place the first week of classes each semester. If you have any questions regarding involvement in the bands at WSU please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Timothy Shade.
