NCDA Honor Band

November 9, 2019

Location information:

There have been a few location changes for NCDA this year.   NCDA auditions take place on Saturday November 9th at Owasso High School.  (Click here for a google map to the school.)  Because the band directors will all be serving as judges, we will not be able to supervise students.  Parents are responsible to take students to the audition.  There will NOT be a school bus provided.  More information regarding the room locations will be provided when Mrs. Cryer receives the information.

What to wear:
Students may wear normal school clothes for this audition.  The judges are behind a screen, so they cannot see the students.

What to do:
Students should arrive 30 min-1 hour prior to their audition.  Playing order will be randomly selected by computer and POSTED IN THE WARM-UP AREA (Gym).  Students should go there FIRST. (Students should not ask the monitor what their number is--they must check in the warm-up area themselves.)  Then, students should go to the try-out room and sign-in next to their number.  Tryout material (etude excerpts and chosen scales) will be posted by each room at that time.  Scales do not have to be memorized, however Miss Arnold highly encourages that you do this (and still take your scale sheet into the room.)  Make sure that you arrive early so that you have time for an adequate warm-up, and so that you are allowed to play.  You are ONLY allowed to warm-up in the gym.   Students who miss their audition time will not be allowed to try-out late without prior consent.  NO DELAYING TACTICS!  If for some reason a student must play early or late, they ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT change numbers.

Results will be posted outside of the gym approximately one hour after all the students of the same instrument have completed auditioning.  If you don't want to wait for the results, Mrs. Cryer will email the audition results through Canvas at the end of the night.

Concessions will also be offered.  

Audition times will be posted here when Mrs. Cryer receives the information.
