Audition Information

Auditions are required of all applicants.

Why auditions? At the workshop, you’ll be placed in combos with other players. We want the combo experience to be as dynamic and well matched as possible. Auditions help us do that. Auditions are nothing to be intimidated about—we expect a wide range of abilities in the workshop, and our audition guidelines will tell you exactly what you need to do.

All applicants, including past participants, must submit an audition tape or CD and audition form.  This tape/CD is required regardless of age or musical experience, and must be a reflection of your current work. Acceptance to The Port Townsend Jazz Workshop is based on these audition materials. The sooner you send in your audition materials, the sooner we can confirm your acceptance. Need help with your audition recording? We have an informative Powerpoint presentation available to help you make your demo recording.

Audition materials are due in our office no later than May 11, 2007, and sooner is better.
