JBAY Spring Auditions will be held on February 3, 2020.
Middle school students from Tampa and all nearby counties are invited to audition for Junior BAY Winds at the University of South Florida. We are seeking talented wind and percussion students who enjoy performing great literature and being surrounded by individuals who share a passion for music.
Rehearsals will be held on Thursday nights throughout the Spring Semester beginning on February 13. All rehearsals are 6:30-8:30 in USF’s Choral Rehearsal Hall. For a complete schedule, click here.
Upon acceptance into the ensemble, there is a $150.00/semester membership fee, due at the first rehearsal. Payments can be made via credit card, PayPal, or check made out to Bay Area Youth Winds or BAYW. We can work with you if you need to be put on a payment plan.
