The Rockford Wind Ensemble will be holding auditions for twelve student members in the Rockford Concert Band. Students rehearse and perform with the adult members of the RCB, and will receive a $10 per concert stipend.
Each summer the RCB presents free concerts on Tuesday evenings in the Sinnissippi Band Shell. The concerts begin June 16 and run for six weeks at Sinnissippi Park. Rehearsals are held each Monday night at Boylan Central Catholic High School, beginning on June 15.
Auditions will be held May 16 beginning at 8:00 am at
Rockford Christian High School
on Bell School Road in Rockford.
Auditions will include two prepared etudes (download audition materials here) sight reading, and a brief interview. Brass and woodwind players should bring their own instruments and music. Percussionists should bring sticks and mallets. Music stands and percussion instruments will be provided.
