The BYWS Spring Concert Cycle begins next Monday (Feb. 12, 2018) with our spring auditions. We're so excited to reconvene this year! Remember if you were a member in the fall, this is simply a chair placement audition for you. If you are new to BYWS, this audition will serve not only as chair placement, but also to determine acceptance into the group.
Auditions are Monday, Feb. 12th from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the UAB Department of Music. Our building is named the Hulsey Center (address below my signature at bottom of email). You may find street parking along 13th St or 10th av., meters are free after 5 pm. Or you may park in the lot behind the AVEIA building across the street from Hulsey.
Students should prepare concert F, Bb, Eb, and Ab scales as many octaves possible with arpeggios at a comfortable tempo by memory. No articulation requirement. There will also be a short excerpt of sight-reading chosen from our spring literature. Students are free to go after they have done their audition. Anyone new to BYWS for spring semester will receive notification regarding acceptance within 2-3 days. All students will receive chair placement results and music folders at our first rehearsal on Feb. 26. in the bandroom at UAB.
Complete the online registration form and we will contact you concerning your acceptance.
