GENERAL INFORMATION

 

AUDITIONS

(for freshmen and students new to the band.)  Are held when you report for Camp in August to assign parts appropriate to individuals' ranges.  Some sight reading to test rhythmic ability; chromatic and a major scale or two, a prepared solo or etude on your part would be appreciated.  Music may be provided in advance.

 

 

CLOTHING

Whatever is comfortable and appropriate.  Running shoes with high backed heel supports may not allow for proper toe point.  Low cut tennis or basketball shoes are highly recommended and should avoid tendonitis.  Make certain they have proper support.  Bring rainwear and sunblock.  The rehearsals go on rain or shine—be prepared.

 

 

COURSE/SECTION

Call # 40491, MUSC 2720, Section 001.  2 hours credit.

HOUSING

Your regularly assigned residence hall room will be available on Sunday, August 19 from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM.

 

 

INSTRUMENTS

Piccolos, mellophones, baritones, tenor saxes, some other instruments (if you own any of these, please use them), sousaphones, and percussion equipment (no sticks) are furnished.  Students supply the rest.

 

 

JOGGING

Two weeks before you report for drills, it is advised you begin to run (on the grass or a soft surface)—we get pulled muscles that might be avoided with a little "preliminary" conditioning.  Stretch out before you jog.

 

 

LYRES

Must be furnished by the bandsmen for their personal instruments.  If you have an odd fitting (or unusual clamp) lyre—be sure you have a spare.  Lyres will be furnished for some school-owned instruments.

 

 

MEALS (on campus students only)

If fees are paid, you may purchase your USU ID card at the USU Card Office, Room 212 of the Taggart University Center.  At that time, a variety of debit-card plans will be available for use: Aggie Marketplace & the Hub Food Court in the Taggart Center, Quick Stop, and Quad-Side Cafe in the Merrill Library.  Follow literature from your residence halls for specific meal information.
