About Auditions

There’s no need to sweat our auditions — anyone who wants to join the Band can join. We see auditions as an opportunity for the Band to get to know you and to welcome you into the core of our community.

If you play an instrument, we’ll ask you to play a scale and sightread a Harvard fight song. If you don’t play an instrument, we’ll discuss other ways to get involved! Note that you do not need to own an instrument — you can borrow one from the Band.

Auditions are scheduled early each Fall. When you Register as a Candidate, we’ll remind you to schedule your audition. But, for real, auditions are very informal. In fact, audition at any time by emailing the Band’s Drill Master!

All auditions take place at the Band Room: 74 Mount Auburn Street in Cambridge.

We look forward to hearing you play!
