Audition material for OMEA, NCDA, and BOA is now available online. It is recommended that students start working on the music as soon as possible. An early start will relieve some of the pressure and workload that can be felt during marching season. Diligent and consistent practice are key to a successful audition.

Honor band audition material will also be the material used for concert band auditions. The general time and date for Concert band auditions has not been set yet. Students were given a copy of audition music on the first day of school. 

Sign ups and additional information will be made available in late August/early September. Students who wish to audition for BOA National Honor Band will sign up online through the Music for All Website. 

Auditions for 1st Round OMEA & NCDA are Saturday, November 3rd @ Owasso High School.
