The Yale Bands is a thriving cultural community. Its members are given opportunities to prepare and perform great music; learn about the arts and their place in society and international cultures; and develop skills to become leaders. Through a robust series of musical activities, many Bands members work with and become serious performers, conductors, composers, arrangers, writers, archivists, historians, photographers, producers, choreographers, media producers, critics, and teachers. Band members develop and master these skills through service to the University, performing and producing commencement music, benefit concerts, university ceremonies, theater shows, international tours, reading sessions for classes, and special events. The Yale Concert Band is an ensemble of 45-60 wind, brass, and percussion players that perform repertoire ranging from wind band classics to premieres, commissions, and the newest wind band literature. All Yale Concert Band activities will be virtual for the fall semester. AUDITION MATERIALS: https://bands.yalecollege.yale.edu/audition-info-fall-2020-yale-concert-band.
