Florida All-State Band Auditions
ALL students auditioning for an All-State Ensemble will need to see a director ASAP to receive a sheet on how to complete their "virtual audition".
Remember there is a time frame when each audition needs to be submitted by:
Symphonic Band (11-12th) - (September 25-26th)
Concert Band (9-10th) - (September 27-28th)
Jazz Ensemble - (October 2-3rd)
Percussion and some jazz rhythm section students will need to schedule a time when they can complete their audition in the band room. See a director to do this.
Band "Fair Share" Payments
If you have not recently made a band fee payment, please do so this week. If you are not participating in the marching band this fall, a credit will be applied to your account within the next couple of days. You are not responsible for covering expenses that are marching band related.
If you have not yet signed up for a Private Lesson, please find time to do this. All students will need to complete two private lessons with a director each nine week grading period. We have before and after school time slots available throughout the week.
