Trumpet Audition for the Air Force Band

Hey all, 

I just found out there was a position for a trumpet in the concert band in the Air Force.  I probably won't take this audition, but I thought I would post the requirements just in case anybody wanted to.  The audition process can be rigorous.  Lots of places ask for a preliminary CD and this one is no different.  I thought all of the auditions were live, but apparently you must be approved before you can take a live audition.  These "tapes" as we call them are due June 1st of 2012.  The live auditions take place in Washington D.C. on July 30th.  It is important to start the taping process as soon as possible.  It can be a little tricky to get exactly what you want from a recording i.e. the right kind of sound, the right room, the proper format.  This isn't a post about electronics or anything, but the preliminary recording can mean the difference between a rejection or an acceptance.  Just something to keep in mind!  Here is a link to the site AIR FORCE.  Check out the career section if you want to know more.
