Kalamazoo Concert Band Auditions

The mission of the Kalamazoo Concert Band is twofold: (1), to provide a legitimate artistic expression of symphonic band music for the greater Kalamazoo community, which will enrich residents’ cultural environment, and (2), to provide competent area musicians with an opportunity to continue their instrumental performance.

Prospective band members will be admitted and placed within the section at the discretion of the Conductor after an audition with the Conductor, Assistant Conductor and/or section leader. The audition is required for permanent membership and placement within the section. New members are added according to section need and proper instrumental balance.

Please prepare a short piece that shows both your technical skills and musicianship. Auditions usually take place before regularly scheduled rehearsals (Thursdays, 7:30pm) at Kalamazoo Christian High School (2121 Stadium Drive, Kalamazoo, MI 49008).

To schedule an audition, please contact the Kalamazoo Concert Band’s conductor, Dr. Thomas G. Evans, at: tevans@kzoo.edu, or the band’s Personnel Manager, Don O’Donnell, at: dono3636@gmail.com.
