Double-blind auditions are held with the auditionee performing behind a screen where s/he cannot see the audition committee and in the same fashion, the audition committee does not know her/his identity. Auditions for membership will take place Sunday, April 19, 2015. Substitute auditions may be arranged by individual appointment.
