Concert Band

Concert Band Header

The Eastern Illinois University Concert Band consists of 50-60 players of varying ability levels. Concert Band is an auditioned ensemble and usually comprises approximately 3/4 music majors and 1/4 non-music majors who simply love to play their instruments and are willing to commit to an hour of individual practice time per week. The Concert Band is designed to foster a collaborative environment and high quality musical experiences for all members who audition and are accepted into the ensemble. The group performs traditional standard and contemporary band repertoire in 2-3 concerts per semester in the Dvorak Concert Hall on campus.

A short part-placement audition is required for all non-music majors, and will consist of 2 major scales, a chromatic scale, and two short musical excerpts, which will be passed out at our first class meeting of the semester. Auditions will take place during the second class meeting of the semester.
