Recordings  and application should be sent before May 1. Online video/audio links or  uploads are strongly suggested, but CD's and DVD's will be accepted. If  sending a link and/or file attachment email those directly to camp  director Ben Walker at Try to use a good quality recorder and microphone to assure as good a quality tape as possible.

Announce at the beginning of the recording your name and the  selections you will be performing. Example: This is John Jones from  Hayes High School, playing "Concerto in D Major for French Horn and  Orchestra." Please list selections on outside of recording box. Also  include name and address on recording box. Recordings will not be  returned.

Audition material should consist of two short works demonstrating your  best skills. There are no specific music literature requirements. It is  highly encouraged to choose contrasting pieces for your  recording/audition. For example a slower melodic work followed by a  faster more technique work would best.
