Thank you for your interest in Carolinas Wind Orchestra!

We are a high-caliber adult community wind band, performing advanced level band and wind ensemble literature. We meet Monday nights at Winthrop University’s Byrnes Auditorium from 6:30-8:00 PM throughout the entire academic year. We typically perform four concerts a year, although we occasionally have other local performance opportunities.

Auditions are required for new members. Acceptance into the group will be based on audition, as well as section availability. Auditions will take place on a Monday evening in August and a Monday evening in January .

You should prepare two excerpts of contrasting styles, as well as be prepared to sight-read.
