OMEA Final Round Audition Information

Each student is to pay $25.00 Hotel Fee. Check or Cash is acceptable. Cash should be exact change (Mr. Hillock cannot and will not make change) and in an envelope marked with your name. Checks should be made out to Jenks Band. The fee is due on or before Tuesday, November 19th. Students may want to include their NCDA hotel fee payment at the same time as OMEA final round auditions - even though the deadlines are two different dates. Students may use their trip account to pay for the hotel. Requests to do this must be sent to Jennifer Betancourt by Thursday, November 14th.

We will not be going to the game. Below is the official itinerary for the weekend.

9:15 AMDirectors Meeting. 
10:00 AM Auditions begin. Auditions will last all day and into the evening. Be ready for times of intense pressure paired with times of boredom. It is okay to bring stuff to do during downtime (cards, monopoly, homework, etc.) but keep in mind the reason that you are there. Students will need money for both lunch and dinner. A concession area is available on site for lunch. We usually try to take students away for dinner that evening. $20.00 should be sufficient for both meals. Final postings have been made around 9:00 PM the last couple of years. That would tentatively get us back home around 11:00 PM.
