The Wind Symphony is the only concert band on campus that requires an audition. Auditions take place during the first week of classes in the fall semester of each academic year. Music majors and non-music majors who would like to audition for the EIU Wind Symphony, please click here (later this summer!) to be redirected to the official audition materials and information webpage.
Students receive academic credit for participation in the bands. All performers must enroll in their specified course number. Students receive one hour of academic credit for each semester of participation. Most degree programs will accept band credit as a "free elective." We strongly encourage you to check with your department's academic advisers for details. First time Concert Band participants should register for the following course number:
