What kinds of things are you looking for with my audition?
We look for all of the basic things... quality of technique, timing, feel, how well you listen, your ability to control articulation, and your overall awareness. Outside of your musical talents, we also look at your personality, work ethic, and ability to respond to corrective criticism, as these are just as important when push comes to shove in the heat of the season!
Are there Health and Safety Guidelines?
Health and safety is incredibly important to us, and we will share all pertinent info as the season progresses.
COVID-specific Information:
  • We will continue to require all members, staff, volunteers, etc. to be fully vaccinated per the CDC COVID recommendations for the 2023 season. Although being vaccinated is not a requirement to audition, Pfizer/Moderna COVID vaccination schedule requires three vaccines.
  • This is an example/recommended schedule that will ensure everyone is fully vaccinated two weeks prior to move-ins:
    • 1st dose, as soon as possible/prior to November 11, 2022
    • 2nd dose 4 weeks after the first dose around December 9, 2022
    • Booster at least 5 months after the 2nd dose and as close to move ins by May 15, 2023 as possible.
  • If you received the J&J vaccination, fully vaccinated means the initial vaccination and boosted.
