Auditions are being held for the Gadsden State Community College Show Band and A Capella Choir Feb. 15, March 1 and March 15 at Wallace Hall.
The critically-acclaimed A Cappella Choir is directed by J.T. Harrell. The group performs at many college functions and has an annual tour.
The Gadsden State Show Band, under the direction of Dr. Matt Leder, is regarded as one of the leading two-year college bands in the southeast. Spots are available for trumpet, trombone, saxophone, voice, bass, drum set, auxiliary percussion, keyboard and guitar. The position of the sound technician is also available.
Auditions consist of a prepared piece of the candidate’s choice, major scales, chromatic scale and sight reading. Drummers should be able to demonstrate a variety of styles, such as the bossa nova, swing, funk, rock and ballad. Vocalists can audition for both the Show Band as a member of the GSCC Singers as well as the A Cappella Choir.
All audition candidates will be required to sit-in with the performance group the day of the audition.
