Brass Audition Requirements

Auditions are approximately 10 minutes in length (doctoral auditions are approximately 30 minutes in length). You will choose the first work and the faculty will choose a second and possibly third work from the audition repertoire list you provide. An accompanist is not provided for auditions. Brass auditions are unaccompanied. For undergraduate-level Horn and Trumpet additions, knowledge of transposition/clefs may be required where applicable.
