Our music department is busy, busy preparing for our spring season. Whatever your instrument of choice, there’s something for every young musician at the Patel Conservatory in downtown Tampa.
In addition to Rock School auditions and our free info session on Suzuki violin, next weekend, we’ll also be having auditions for both the Patel Conservatory Youth Orchestra and the Jazz Ensemble.
Auditions for both PCYO and the Jazz Ensemble will be Saturday, January 8th starting at 2 p.m.
The Patel Conservatory Jazz Ensemble is looking for a rhythm section to include saxophones, trumpets and trombones. Learn from working artists in the business and sharpen your improvisation and ensemble skills!
The Jazz Ensemble performs twice a year including at the Jazz at the Straz Side-by-Side concert with the 16-piece Ken Loomer Big Band (April 23, 2011).
For Saturday’s jazz auditions, please prepare a one-minute piece in a jazz style and one prepared scale (an accompanist will not be provided).
For PCYO auditions, please check the audition page on our website for more information.
