2014 Big Band Auditions

Auditions for the Manchester University Big Band are upon us!

If you would like to play in a jazz band that covers repertoire taken from all corners of jazz and perform it to a high standard, look no further. 

If you’re interested in joining us, and you play Sax, Trombone, Trumpet, Piano, Bass, Drums, or Guitar, please check out the notice board in the Martin Harris Centre - across from main reception - where you can sign up for an audition on Tuesday (30th Sept) or Wednesday (1st Oct) next week. Any budding Jazz singers out there, watch this space: we’ll be auditioning again for our vocal showcase in March!'

The audition simply consists of sight reading a moderately difficult chart for a couple of bars and a good relaxed improvisation over a popular standard.

Good luck! And if you have any questions, please do email us at bigband@mumusicsociety.co.uk.
