Wind, BRASS, and PERCUSSION Auditions

Spring 2024 Ensemble Auditions

Please complete the audition information form Linked Here:

Auditions to consist of NO MORE THAN THREE (3) minutes of music and should demonstrate your finest musicianship. Acceptable selections include brief etudes, solo excerpts, or excerpts from wind ensemble or orchestral literature, as long as the selection demonstrates your abilities and artistry. 

Following are the TWO WAYS to audition for the spring semester of FAU Wind Ensemble and Symphony Orchestra winds.

  1. Record yourself, and send the complete file (audio) or hyperlink to file on GoogleDrive or YouTube (video) to Dr Kyle Prescott (KPRESCO2@FAU.EDU) by 9:00 am Monday, January 8 (audio alone is acceptable, video preferred). Begin the audition recording by stating your name and your instrument.
  2. Attend in-person auditions on Monday, January 8 between 9 am and 10 am, or between 11 am and 12 noon, in AL 260

If you are unable to provide the recorded audition or attend Monday in-person, contact Dr Prescott  directly and we will find a solution. (

Do not overthink this. I simply want to hear you play your best in order to place you for the coming term. If you have 2 minutes of music from your December Jury you wish to submit, that would be a good choice. Any style of music that demonstrates your abilities is acceptable.

Again, please send your audition file to Dr. Prescott at He will forward it to other conductors as required.
