Video or audio submissions are welcome throughout the year.

You may also audition in person at our rehearsals

Please send an email to bmuradmusic@gmail​.com to request an audition time.

The musical director will then send you a musical excerpt to prepare so

You may also choose from the examples below in addition to any excerpts sent to you:

  • a classical piece or etude or solo part from a school ensemble
