The BU Jazz Ensembles are holding auditions for the big band, jazz combos, jazz workshop, and the jazz labs. The audition is in CFA room 167. Audition materials are available here: http://www.bu.edu/ensembles/all-campus/jazz/big-band/auditions/ Our ensembles are designed to grant students interested in jazz and improvisation improvisational the chance to continue playing music while at BU. Our ensembles accommodates students at various skill levels, and include music majors and students majoring in almost all of the other colleges at BU. Our ensembles provide opportunities for two types of student: 1) for students who wish to “learn by doing” and improve at a rate commensurate with the goal of providing the skills necessary for a rewarding life of recreational music-making; and 2) for students eager for a rigorous environment in which they can improve steadily and learn to improvise at the highest of levels. Placement is based on instrumentation requirements and ability, but every effort will be made to accommodate musicians of any experience level.
