**All auditions will be in person in the Black Box (room M407) at Ferris. Please be 5 - 10 minutes early before your scheduled audition so you can tune and warm up. I will have you come into the room when it is your audition time. If you are coming to Ferris on your 'home' day or coming from another school, please fill out the health check before entering the building and present it to me when it's time for your audition.
