Symphonic Band Auditions/Finals for next year
All students were given a page of music from Who’s Who in Navy Blue. The entire piece is part of the audition. Seniors do not need to do this. Returning Symphonic Band members can email me a recording of this excerpt similar to the midterm. All concert band members must sign-up for a final time between finals on June 6,7 to play for me live. There will be a few other morning times and QRP times TBA. Sign-up sheets will be on the band room doors soon. This is the students grade for their final.
