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.
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.
