Jazz Ensemble Audition Results

Before you read the names below…

Please realize that there are more good players that auditioned than there are spots available for the top band.

If you were not selected…

It’s not personal!

The decisions are hard to make. We dislike this part of the process and it’s painful for everyone. This is the time in your life to practice and grow. You will have the opportunity to re-audition next semester. All the bands will be terrific.

Keep practicing!
