Auditions are by appointment only, and will be in person, unless no other option is possible. A DWS conductor will either visit your school, or agree on a meeting place to hold the audition. Auditions will close when all positions are filled.


You will be asked to perform a variety of major/minor scales, a melodic excerpt (usually slower in nature) and a more technical excerpt (usually faster in nature). You will be responsible to select the excerpts (ask your band director if needed), and they can be from any source (etudes, solos, concert music). Sight-reading may be required.

The Diablo Wind Symphony is committed to supporting local music programs. All DWS members MUST be in their school music programs unless their school does not have a program. There are no exceptions to this requirement.
