Audition Information

Auditions for Lagniappe-Potpourri 2018 pit band are now open! We are looking to put together a full pit orchestra with traditional "big band" instruments and strings. Experience in jazz is encouraged but not required.

Rehearsals will start over the summer, prior to the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. Rehearsals will start Mid-August, and will be on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 12:30 to 2:00. Once school starts, rehearsals will be from 3:45 until 5:00 on the same days. Being in pit band is a major time commitment at the start of the school year, and it is important that all applicants are able to make it to rehearsals prior to applying.

Lagniappe is a great experience, and provides an opportunity for us to play in a different setting than what is offered during the school day. To audition, fill out the attached google form no later than May 31th. For any questions, feel free to reach out to us at
