US Naval Academy Band jazz/ceremonial trumpet

The United States Naval Academy Band is seeking a trumpet player to perform with the Jazz Combo, Ceremonial/Marching Units, and Brass Quintet. While Jazz style and improvisation are the emphasis of this audition, a demonstration of proficiency in classical trumpet performance is a requirement. The first round is based on a live video recording, which will be due by August 2nd, 2021. The accepted applicants will then participate in a live audition, which will be held on September 13th, 2021. The audition committee reserves the right to dismiss any candidate not meeting the highest professional standards.

To be considered for an audition, applicants will submit a one page resume to MUC Emily Madsen at auditions@usna.edu. Upon receipt of a resume, recording instructions will be sent to the candidates. All travel arrangements and expenses are the responsibility of the candidate. Active duty musicians from all branches of the U.S. military must also send a letter of endorsement from their Commanding Officer.

In order to accept a position with the United States Naval Academy Band, the audition winner must also qualify for enlistment in the United States Navy and successfully complete Recruit Training. A minimum of a four-year enlistment is required. The Navy has strict height, weight, and other medical requirements. Additionally, Naval Academy Band members may not have tattoos that are visible in short sleeves or skirts. Applicants are highly encouraged to seek out the advice of a U.S. Navy Recruiter.
