  • Students should report directly to their scheduled room, 15 minutes before their assigned time (when possible); there is no need to "check in" if they know where they are going.
  • Additional students may be registered on-site at Moses Brown (by a RIMEA member, typically a student's school music teacher or private instructor) in the band room in Ross House, Lower Level, Room B002, for a fee of $35. (Earlier is best if you plan to register on-site.)
  • Due to numbers and/or scheduling requests, the following rooms are morning-only: ALL Jazz band auditions EXCEPT for Jazz Sax, ALL bassoon/oboe/bass clarinet; ALL euphonium/baritone/French horn; ALL trombones/tubas, ALL clarinets, ALL snare drums, ALL mallets/timpani, ALL viola, ALL cello/double bass, ALL trumpets, JUNIOR saxophones, JUNIOR flutes, and ALL classical guitars.
  • NO PHOTOCOPIED MUSIC is allowed at any RIMEA festival. (The rare exception would be a piece that is back ordered and did not arrive in time AND the student can produce a proof of purchase). Printed copies of CPDL pieces are just fine.
  • Drums and percussion equipment will be provided in the audition rooms.
  • Jazz Guitar and Jazz Bass, an amplifier and 1/4 inch instrument cable will be provided.
  • There will be a footstool provided in the CLASSICAL guitar room.
