All undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to audition for the bands. Members of the faculty and staff and JPL are also encouraged to audition. Members of last year's ensemble need not audition unless they want to do so.
Auditions are very low key. Just bring your instrument, and if have the time to prepare something, that would also be good.
If you haven't played all summer, or even for a year or two, don't worry about it. Enthusiasm is more important than ability!
All band auditions will take place at the Caltech Music House:
Sign up sheets for Oxy students may be found in the lobby of the music department main office.
Please come by if you have the chance and sign up for a specific audition time. (Sign up sheets will be posted on the bulletin board in the music house). The sheets will be up a few days before the first auditions, and will also be at the club fairs. But even if you don't sign up, just come by the room and we'll fit you in the schedule.
If you need to borrow an instrument, just email the conductor, William Bing, and he may be able to find you one to play.
Once you have borrowed an instrument, you will need to fill out the Instrument Loan Contract.
