Well for one, you do know that this is for the ceremonial brass, right? It's kinda a sousaphone gig. So what? Also, no one said you have to take this audition, so why bother if you are less than impressed? Frankly, you're probably better off not auditioning with that kind of an attitude... i.e. you probably won't be winning this audition if you think you'll hate it because I guarantee that there are other Sousa players out there that are ready to stomp anyone that stands in their way. They don't think it's stupid...or less than impressive, or weird, or undelightful. I for one know a few tuba players that want this really bad. My two cents, for what it's worth. Don't audition if you don't want to win.
