CAN I PLAY WITHOUT AN AUDITION?
Yes! The UW Concert and Campus Bands (MUSEN 309/509) are open to all players without audition, Wednesday evenings, 7:00-9:00. Our first meeting will be in Meany Hall Rm 268 on Wednesday September 30th, 2020 at 7:00pm. All campus and concert band students should attend this first rehearsal. Bring your instruments, as we will play at the first rehearsal.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO PLAY IN MORE THAN ONE ENSEMBLE?
Yes! Rehearsals are scheduled to avoid conflicts between different ensembles including jazz ensembles and Husky Marching Band.
