Guitar and Bass Guitar

Auditions are required for both Guitar and Bass Guitar players.  Please be aware that sheet music for bass guitarists may be a Tuba part.  Guitarists will need to figure out the chords to some songs and write them over top of the bass guitar sheet music (which may be a Tuba part).  Audio files are available for all audition pieces to ensure that you are on the right track.

Auditions for these players will take place the last week of September, with all paperwork being turned in by the end of the first week in October. Those who miss the paperwork deadline will NOT get paid!
