CU Winds?

<p>So I'm thinking about auditioning for CUWinds. Does anyone know how competitive the audition is? Do they just basically let everyone who auditions join? Also,what's the difference between Wind Ensemble and Wind Symphony,and how do they place you into one of them?</p>

<p>I would also like to know how time-consuming being in CUWinds is. Is it advisable for me, an international student and a freshman, to audition for the spring semester instead,after getting used to the academics and college life?</p>

<p>clubs and extracurriculars can often be very cutthroat...</p>
