Ensemble Auditions

Wind Ensemble | Wind Symphony | Symphony Band

Membership in The University of Texas Wind Ensemble, Wind Symphony, and Symphony Band is determined via auditions which are open to all qualified students at The University. These auditions take place the first week of classes of each fall and spring term, and are heard by the conductors and the appropriate applied music Professor.

Each audition will last approximately five minutes. Students are required to perform a set of excerpts that will allow you to demonstrate both the sensitive and technical strengths of your playing. Audition materials will be available for download on the Ensemble Auditions page after August 1st (for the fall semester) and after December 1st (for the spring semester).

Audition signups will take place online. A link to the signup form will be provided below after August 1 (for the fall semester) and after December 1 (for the spring semester). Please be sure to complete the online signup prior to the week of auditions. Audition schedules will be posted below as they become available.

Please visit the Spring Ensemble Auditions page of the Butler School of Music website for additional information, including downloadable excerpts and links to audition sign-up forms!
