Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Combo Audition Materials 2020!

2020-2021 Audition Information and Materials!

(edited 2/10/21)

"AUDITION CENTRAL" can be accessed here .

Thank you for your interest in being a part of our vibrant Jazz Performance Program. We aim to offer as "life-like" an experience within the realm of the Jazz Ensemble and/or Jazz Combos as will be possible as we relate to the issues surrounding COVID and its impact on us all in our daily lives.

Please click on the Google link above to gain access to the audition materials including sheet music, playalong track(s) and info/sign-up forms. 

To this end, we will have auditions online via Zoom, scheduled with Bruce Diehl, Feb. 16-17. Note if you need to do this audition in a Music Building space, or need to use our gear, we will plan a meeting on Monday, Feb. 22 in the afternoon. The exact logistics are still being worked out (look for a link to schedule a 15ish-minute audition), and also specific directions on how to prepare.....we encourage you to become familiar with Zoom in a music context if that has not been part of your Fall semester action. Thank you!

Have fun with this! Please contact Bruce Diehl (bpdiehl@amherst.edu) with any questions.

We look forward to meeting and welcoming you back  and having you a part of our vibrant Jazz Performance Program!

 (note-the audition pieces below state 2020...but that should read 2020-2021).
