Join the Band
Musicians interested in joining PCWB are invited to reading the process described below and contact our director, Patrick Murphy, to inquire about section openings and an audition, using the form below.
A potential new member is invited to participate in 2 rehearsals. During this time, he/she will be seated near the section leader, who will assist with the music and check in after rehearsals. This is a great way to get a feel for the group, ask questions of the section leader, and decide if the band is a good fit.
After the 2nd rehearsal, a recommendation is made to the director, who may choose to schedule an audition with the potential new member. This brief audition will consist of a short piece prepared by the musician, any 4 major scales (selection by the musician), and a sight-reading piece, most likely in 6/8.
