Students may now begin to sign up for OMEA All-State and NCDA Regional Honor Bands. A sign up sheet is posted on the board in the main band room. Students verify instrument information is accurate, check appropriate boxes indicating which honor bands they wish to audition for, and list any additional instruments that a student would also want to audition for. Students should share any important information and/or corrections with Mr. Hillock. The deadline to sign up is Tuesday, August 31st.
Audition fees for NCDA are $10.00 for the first entry and $5.00 for each additional entry.
Exact Fees are due on or before Tuesday, September 7th. Students paying with cash must have the exact amount in an envelope marked with the student's name, the amount enclosed, and what the money is for. Students paying with a check may simply turn in the check. Students may pay with a credit card on the jenks band parent website. Students may also use trip account if funds are available. Requests to use the trip account must be made to the trip fund manager/treasurer by Tuesday, September 7th.
A list of fees owed is available HERE.
Audition music is now available for students who want to try out for OMEA All-State and NCDA Regional Honor Bands. No better time than the present to get a solid start on this material. If you do not own these books containing the audition etudes, we highly recommend that you purchase them. It is a great resource to have in your personal library. If you are unable to do so, you may also contact a director to get a copy of the music.
