2017-2018 Year B Auditions
This is Year B
for jazz auditions. Please be aware that this year's
audition music includes cuts. Be sure to follow the audition
cuts marked on the music. These cuts will coincide with the
audition CD as well. The vibes audition requirement has been eliminated, so drummers should audition on the regular drum part. I would recommend getting a fresh CD from Buddy. Each Region Coordinator has an official CD that will be used for the Area recordings.

I have created a checklist which should help answer most questions
about the tryout procedure and everything involved in the region and
area jazz auditions.
