Students may now sign up to audition for OMEA and/or NCDA. Students in grades 9-12 may audition for NCDA. Students in grades 10-12 may audition for OMEA. A sign up sheet is on the board in the band room. It is highly recommended that students in 10-12 grade sign up for both.
Deadline to sign up is Thursday, August 31st.
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.
