Music Auditions - Freshmen
Music Ensemble Auditions
Auditions to participate in CMU choral or marching band/instrumental ensembles and the color guard are held during orientation.
 
Students who do not plan to major in music but are interested in joining a university musical ensemble must audition.  Auditions are scheduled the evening prior to specific orientation dates.
 
If you already have been accepted as a music major, you do not need to sign up for a music ensemble audition unless you wish to sing or play an instrument other than your major.

Students who schedule a music audition will receive a packet of information from the School of Music three weeks prior to their orientation date.
 
Because preseason marching band camp conflicts with the August orientations, potential marching band members should avoid these orientation sessions.
 
If you are unable to audition for CMU music ensembles during the May or June orientation sessions, contact the School of Music to arrange your audition.
 
Instrumental: James Batcheller at (989) 774-3317 or e-mail batch1jc@cmich.edu.
Choral: Nina Nash-Robertson at (989) 774-3391 or e-mail nashr1nm@cmich.edu.
