Practice Audition Day

Final Reminders

We are eagerly looking forward to your arrival on campus this Thursday! Here are some final reminders to help make the day go smoothly:


Check-In will take place between 8–8:45 a.m. at the Steinbrenner Band Center (located between gates 10 and 12 of the Ohio Stadium). You do NOT need to have your instrument with you at check-in, or for any of the morning sessions. You will only need your instrument in the afternoon for your audition.

Large Instruments (bass, cello, euphonium, tuba): we realize that navigating campus with your instruments will be complicated, particularly since our event takes place in two separate locations during the day. With regard to parking (see information below), we suggest you park for the morning sessions at the Tuttle Garage, and then park for the afternoon audition at the Ohio Union South Garage.


When planning your visit (and parking), please remember that this year’s Practice Audition Day will begin at the Steinbrenner Band Center and end at the School of Music (Hughes Hall and Weigel Hall).
