Concert Band Auditions
First of all, I’m very excited about this year’s band. There is a lot of talent returning as well as some outstanding new members. I have some exciting music selected for the first concert and I can’t wait to get started.
Nobody is required to audition for Concert Band; if you want to play, we want you to join us. That being said, if you are interested in being considered for principal player (first chair), you need to audition. Especially in sections with split parts (flutes, trumpets, horn, clarinets, etc), the more people that audition, the better chance I have of placing you where you will be most successful.
Percussion, you will not audition; part assignments will be handled by the principal percussion. Those of you interested in being considered for the principal percussion position will have a short interview with me to discuss that job.
Auditions will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 24-25. Sign-up sheets for times will be posted immediately after the initial meeting on Monday, September 23rd at noon.
If you have any questions about the audition procedure, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks and good luck!
Dr. Doug Harris, Director of Bands
