The Carleton Symphony Band performs music from the standard band and wind ensemble repertoire as well as orchestral transcriptions. Recent performances include Vittorio Giannini's Symphony No. 2, Vaughan Williams' Folk Song Suite, Dello Joio's Scenes from Louvre, and MacBeth's Of Sailors and Whales. The band presents a formal concert each term and performs at Commencement. Open admission, placement by audition.

Auditions include scales, a prepared piece of your choice, sightreading, and the excerpt assigned to your instrument. Instrument specific information can be found here

Auditions usually take about 10 minutes, and we try to make these as informal and “user friendly” as possible.  Still, good preparation always makes for a less-stressful audition experience, so we encourage you to come prepared!
