As always, payment can be made with a check or with cash (in an envelope with the appropriate information).

All students will need the Foundations for Superior Performance (blue book), a pencil, as well as additional materials defined by each performing group/conductor. Information and deadlines for additional materials will be added after auditions are completed and rehearsals for each band begin.
