All-Region Band Auditions – REQUIRED for 8th grade band members

This is a reminder that Jr. High All-Region auditions will take place on Saturday, December 12, 2015 at Ramsey JH in Fort Smith.  The audition is a required event for all eighth grade band members and was on the band calendar that was sent home the first day of school.

Students must ride the bus with the band to their audition.  At the conclusion of their audition, a student may be checked out by a parent only.  If you plan to pick up your child after their audition, please notify me by email or call me at the middle school by Friday, December 11.  When you arrive at Ramsey, you will need to come inside the building and sign your child out with a director or one of our parent chaperones.  It is very important that you follow this process.

Eighth grade band members need to be at the middle school band room at 7:00 a.m. so that the buses can leave at 7:15 a.mWe hope to be back no later than 4:30 p.m., although the time has varied year to year.  It is tough to pinpoint a time as there are over 1000 students signed up to audition, however there are always cancellations.  You may want to send a cell phone with your child so that they can call home when we are on our way back to Alma.  Please be prompt in picking your child from the middle school.

Band members will need to bring their instrument, music, and a pencil for the audition.  Students may also wish to bring money to purchase lunch or snacks from the concession stand.

The information sheet that was sent home with students on Monday, November 30th, can be found on the band Edline page and by clicking the link below this post.
