2017-2018 Audition Information

Concert Band Audition Information

All current students will audition for ensemble placement in our Concert Ensembles. Completion of minimum requirements for an ensemble does not automatically ensure membership in that ensemble. We will take the best performers as a result of the auditions while utilizing basic industry standards for balanced instrumentation in each performing ensemble. This will insure the proper educational experience for accurate and authentic reproduction of modern band literature utilizing the techniques gleaned from such rehearsals and performances.

Incoming 9th graders are invited to audition for our Wind Ensemble using the criteria listed in the linked audition material. All 9th graders who enroll as a member of the band will be placed in concert band unless they are qualified and accepted into the Wind Ensemble.  Please scroll down in the PDF to find the appropriate music.  Incoming 9th graders who plan on auditioning will need to RSVP through the calendar at our website.  On the calendar scroll to May 22nd and click the black RSVP box to sign-up.
