Cedar Valley High School Jazz Bands Auditions, for both Intermediate and Advanced groups will be held on Thursday April 11 at Frontier Middle School beginning at 4 pm. More information will be posted later regarding signing up for a specific audition time. Here is what you need to know to prepare for your audition:
Jazz Auditions for winds:
Please listen to the song, “On the Sunny Side of the Street.” You can find many different versions to the song on youtube. Then practice the audition material, applying the articulations you hear in the recording to the music. We are not expecting everything to be perfect. Just do the best you can.
Jazz Rhythm Section Auditions:
Rhythm section players will need to look at both songs and learn to play them. If you need help on how the songs should sound you can go to these youtube videos to listen.
“My Dinner with Ronald”
“Uncle Milos Side Show”
Audition materials for all instruments can be found and downloaded HERE
