Audition Policy

All music majors and scholarship recipients are required to audition and be available to play in Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, or Symphony Orchestra. All music majors and scholarship recipients are expected to keep their schedules completely conflict-free until after the audition results have been posted. Top winds, brass, and percussion players will rotate semesters between the KU Wind Ensemble and the KU Symphony Orchestra.

Ensemble Auditions for Fall 2021 will be in person. Musicians can sign up for a date/time at Murphy 124 beginning the week of August 16.
