musicians

<p>you don't have to be a music major in order to audition for any of the performance groups, do you? i was getting a little mixed up based on the website.</p>

<p>I'm not a music major (although I am a music minor) and I successfully auditioned into Symphony Orchestra and a student acapella group, and I'm also taking African Drumming next semester. So no, you don't have to be a music major to be in these groups.</p>

<p>That being said, there's no reason to say that the auditioners won't be biased in favor of the music majors during the audition process...but don't worry! I know literally dozens of people who have nothing to do with music but got into Symphony, or University Chorus, or the Wind Ensemble, etc.</p>

<p>what do you need to play at the campanile?</p>

<p>To play the carillons? Uhm, I'm not sure, they might offer a class on that. I don't think anyone plays the thing except for the professional carillonist (or whatever you call him). Wouldn't expect the higher-ups to allow students to play a song across the entire campus.</p>

<p>Ah, I looked it up. </p>

<p>"Sather Tower houses two practice keyboards for student use. Students work at a practice keyboard until ready for performance on the carillon."</p>

<p>Weird....I only recall seeing one at Cal Day.</p>
