If you know anything about Berklee, you know that Berklee’s students are continuously presented with opportunities that you wouldn’t get at any other school. Even though this spring semester has only just begun, incredible opportunities are already starting to roll in! Check out some of the upcoming events below.
Green Day’s ‘American Idiot’ National Tour Auditions 2012
Berklee College of Music, 150 Mass Ave, Room 114
Auditions will run on Saturday, January 28th, from 10 am – 1 pm. Callbacks will be held on Sunday, January 29th. Bring a recent picture and performance resume and prepare a short rock song. Bring sheet music. A piano accompanist will be provided; however, there will not be a microphone. Please bring your own with a cable if necessary. Men and women who play the guitar is a huge plus. Bring your own guitar and accompany yourself if you are able (acoustic or electric – bring cables if needed). Graduating seniors/recent alums are preferred as rehearsals begin in August. In order to audition, participants must be 18 years of age as of August 2012.
Disney College Band Auditions 2012
Berklee College of Music, Genko Uchida Building at 921 Boylston St., 1st floor.
On January 29th from 9am – 4pm, Disney will be holding auditions for a 21 piece high-energy marching/show and jazz/stage band made up of the best college/university students from all over the US. Auditions will be held for the following instruments only: trumpet, trombone, saxophone, tuba/sousaphone, horn/mellophone, percussion/drum set, acoustic/electric bass (must double on bass drum or tuba), jazz piano (must double on marching drums), and auxiliary percussion. You must be a US citizen, least 18 years old, currently enrolled in a college or university in the US, have completed at least one year by summer, and possess a diverse musical background, excellent musicality, and an expressive, outgoing personality. You will have five minutes to demonstrate your sight reading skills as well as your musical abilities in three different styles of music. Audition times will be determined on a first-come first-serve basis.
It’s great to hit the road with your music, but how can you reduce the environmental impact of touring? Randy Bird will discuss how students recycle vegetable oil from Berklee’s cafeteria to fuel specially-equipped vans for touring musicians. Josh Glasheen of Reverb will explain how his organization provides greening programs for music tours while conducting grassroots outreach and education with fans around the globe.
