I know that there were 18 in the first round, and 5 people advanced. An additional 5 were added to that group (finalists from March and/or currently in a regional USAF band). From that round of 10, 4 were advanced to the finals this afternoon.
Daniel Walley of Manhattan School of Music won the position. It was a great, and competitive audition! Congrats to all who participated, especially Daniel.
