Selection to these groups is by recorded (blind) audition. Students interested in applying submit recordings of their playing using a prescribed - downloadable - etude, samples of improvisation and scales of their choosing. Rehearsals and concert will be held Thursday, May 12th, in Des Moines in conjunction with the annual Iowa Bandmasters Convention.
