If you reside outside 100 miles of Boise, you may submit your audition via video recording. All recordings should be emailed or uploaded to an internet video site (ie YouTube) and the link sent to email@example.com . Please click on your instrument link below for the recorded audition requirements. While it is strongly suggested that those interested in the Blue Thunder Non Resident Fee Waiver submit their auditions prior to February 24th, there may be additional fee waivers available. Please contact the office.
* If you are declaring as a Music Major or Minor and are auditioning as Brass or Woodwind, your Department of Music audition will count as your Blue Thunder audition. Percussion and Color Guard however, will need to complete an additional audition for Blue Thunder.
Please check the individual instrument PDF for specific requirements.
