Your audition video should contain:
- A short introduction of yourself
- Tiger Rag (one time through, stop at the end of the first ending)
- Alma Mater (one time through)
- 2021 Audition Excerpt
All 3 songs on the video must be done in one, continuous, un-edited take. (Do not turn the camera off between songs)
Your face and fingers/valves/slides must be visible at all times in the video.
Specialized instruments may use more common instruments for their audition. For example:
- Piccolos may audition on Flute
- Mellophones may audition on Horn
- Baritones may audition on Euphonium or a Concert Baritone
- Sousaphones may audition on Tuba
Sheet music for Tiger Rag, The Alma Mater, and the 2021 Audition Excerpt can be viewed and downloaded below.
Returning members must submit a new video for the 2021 season. Videos used in previous seasons will not be accepted.
Returners: Please use the posted part for your section for the audition regardless of what part you played in previous seasons of Tiger Band.
New for 2021: The Audition Excerpt is a portion of a selection that Tiger Band has played at halftime in the past. It is our hope that including a piece like this on the audition will give you an opportunity to better show us your musicianship and technical ability relative to a normal Tiger Band performance.
All submissions will be evaluated by expert players and educators and the process will be overseen by the Tiger Band directors.
Returning members will earn 1 bonus point on their audition for every semester of participation in Tiger Band, other Clemson Bands, and private lessons with Clemson University Instructors.
