WHAT to expect in an audition
String players will be auditioned on instruments we provide. You won’t need to bring your own guitar or bass. At the beginning of the audition a group of Blue Man music directors will perform a short piece from the show. You will then be asked to play that same piece with the music directors, emulating our style and approach as closely as possible. Guitarists will be asked to play guitar, and bassists will be asked to play bass. Bassists should be prepared to play with a pick. It is also possible that we will ask you to play some other parts from the show on one or both of our custom string instruments (zither and Chapman stick). If so, we will show you those parts at the audition, and the instruments will be provided. No chart reading or performance of prepared pieces will be required.
