Pieces for Symphonic Band Auditions

Here is a link to a recording of "Procession of the Nobles."

This should give you an idea of the piece. But...warning! They play the piece significantly faster than most ensembles, and faster than we will play it.

Shoot for Quarter Note = 90-96. Not 124 like this band on the recording...

Here's a recording of the other audition excerpt: "Rondo," from "Prelude, Siciliano, and Rondo."

The audio isn't great. Also, probably an example of the most boring way to conduct...

Remember, auditions for symphonic band will take place the week of October 15 during seminar and after school.
