Auditions

New this year: In lieu of auditions we are now accepting teacher recommendations using the evaluation form provided.

Recorder auditions may be submitted either as an mp3 file or by sending a link to a YouTube recording and must be submitted to this address: novascotiahonourjazz@gmail.com The deadline for recorded audition submissions is November 16, 2016. Returning members of Honour Jazz do not need to audition or supply a teacher reference but still need to email us the registration form found here.
