2018 All State Instrumental Examples


Dr. Michael Golemo 
Director of Bands, Professor of Music

Listed below are links to recorded examples of our faculty performing the 2018 Iowa "All-State" etudes. Several of these etudes feature written comments to help you prepare your audition. These recordings are not meant to be definitive examples. They are simply one person's interpretation, with a limited amount of preparation time, to assist you in preparing your own interpretation.

We hope that you might be interested in the band program at Iowa State University. Each year, over 700 students participate in the ISU Bands! We have outstanding ensembles for every musical taste: four concert bands, three pep bands, two jazz ensembles, several jazz combos, and the "Cyclone" Marching Band.

Best wishes to you in your preparation of these etudes. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you questions about performing these etudes.  Be sure to check out our Instrumental All-State day!Advertisement for ISU Instrumental All-State day.
