SIP Cymbal Audition '15

Students auditioning for a battery instrument MUST mark time during their audition.

Glass Phrases is to be performed in the tempo range given (quarter note = 120-132).

Students who performed on a particular instrument for the Fall 2014 Marching Band Season are not guaranteed the same spot for SIP 2015.  However, students' dependability and performance throughout the Fall 2014 Marching Season will be evaluated when making personnel decisions for the 2015 ensemble.

After auditions, students will be positioned in the ensemble in which Mr. Albert feels they will best benefit the group.

Preparedness through musical and technical execution will be major factors in student positioning in the 2015 ensemble.

If offered a position in the 2015 Sparkman Indoor Percussion Ensemble, please see the calendar page for important dates of rehearsals, meetings, performances, etc.  It is understood that if a student auditions for this ensemble, they are able to be present at ALL SIP functions.
