The Ridgewood Concert Band holds auditions throughout the season. We are looking
for musicians who have a musical passion for symphonic band literature, are dedicated
to our performance schedule, and can perform music on the level of the Ridgewood
Players who would like to join the Ridgewood Concert Band should contact us via
email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please
provide your name, telephone number/email address, instrument, and a brief description
of your playing experience. You will be contacted to set up an audition. The audition
should highlight your technical and musical proficiency and could be contrasting
sections of a sonata, concerto, or a few etudes.
Auditions are typically held prior to Ridgewood Concert Band rehearsals. Players
who audition will know ahead of time if a section is in need of their particular
instrument and will be told immediately after the audition if they have been accepted
as a member of the band.
Percussion auditions are arranged by the percussion section leader and differ from
our brass and woodwind auditions. Those interested should contact the Ridgewood
Concert Band for details on availability and audition procedures.
