Santa Clara Vanguard Brass
Membership Information


Thank you for your interest in joining the 2018 Santa Clara Vanguard Hornline!

Brass players who wish to audition for the Santa Clara Vanguard are required to download the 2018 Brass Audition Packet (listed below) for their respective section. These packets are $10 and are available for purchase through our online store.

When coming to auditions, we ask that all brass players (except tubas) bring their own instrument if possible. All attendees are also required to bring their own mouthpiece. We play on Yamaha Bb horns, and one will be provided for use in the summer if you are offered a contract. If you would feel more comfortable auditioning on a concert horn please bring your own, concert tubas, french horns and trombones are acceptable.

If you have questions about any of the exercises, methods or techniques as well as any operational, attendance or logistics questions please email
