Tacoma Concert Band Side-by-Side Auction Process


1.  Students need to record all three pieces from SET A:
       • Classical solo-varies by instrument
       • Chromatic Scale
       • DannyBoy

NOTE TO PERCUSSIONISTS: You must record TWO of the three percussion auditions (snare/mallets and/or timpani). Mallet players do not have to record "Danny Boy" in addition to the normal audition material for mallets.

2.   Make a video of yourself playing the audition material, and send the link to:
julie.allison7@gmail.com

3.  One way to do this is to make a video and upload it to YouTube, making it a private link.
Here's a YouTube video that shows exactly how to do that: https://youtu.be/_gN6h2QFUb0
4.  Fill out and scan the Side-by-Side participant commitment and release form and email that to: iulie.allison7@gmail.com
