NCDA Honor Band Trip Itinerary

Initial Information

Students should regularly and diligently practice honor band music so as to be prepared for group rehearsals. These rehearsals are intended for the group to learn to play as an ensemble, experience quality literature, enjoy the honor band experience, and give a top-quality performance on Saturday afternoon. In order for this to occur, students must learn the notes, rhythms, and dynamics prior to the honor band clinic.

Hotel fee is $30.00 and is due by Tuesday, December 12th, before the holiday break. Payments may be made by Check (made out to Jenks band). Cash (should be exact amount, turned in an envelope with proper information on the outside), Trip Funds (if money is in trip account), or Credit Card (done on Band Parent Website).

Students should review Overnight Trip Rules before going to event.

Friday, January 5th

 6:00 AM    Load Buses

We have two buses going to Stillwater - one for HS students and one for MS. Students in grades 9-12 should check out uniform and load everything at the HS music building. Students in grades 7-8 will load buses in the MS front oval. Remember to bring your suitcase, concert uniform/attire, instrument, folder/music, pencil, mutes (if needed), and money for meals and evening activity. Students should pack lightly as they will carrying everything on Saturday morning to their rehearsal venue.

Percussion students should make double sure they have brought all necessary instruments and sticks/mallets. It would be a good idea for percussion students to organize all equipment Thursday after school so nothing is accidentally forgotten on Friday morning. Take care of school and personal equipment. We want them to stay in good condition and not to get forgotten, lost, stolen, damaged, or broken.

NCDA (and first round OMEA) auditions take place on Saturday November 4th at Owasso High School, 12901 E 86th Street North. Click HERE for a google map to the school. Auditions will take place at the East Campus (main building). Vehicles may park in the West or South parking lots, and enter through the South or Northwest doors. Percussion should unload at the PAC loading dock. Click HERE for a view of Owasso High School with highlighted entrances. The gym will be the warm-up area, and the large band room will function as an additional percussion warm-up area.

Parents are responsible to take students to the audition. There will NOT be a school bus provided.  

Band directors will be there, but serving as judges throughout the day. They will not be able to supervise students. 

Concessions will be available in the Ram Cafe.

Students may wear normal school clothes for this audition. It is not necessary to dress up for this event. The judges are behind a screen and cannot see the students.

Students should arrive 30 minutes to 1 hour prior to their audition. This allows enough time to warm up, obtain your audition time, find your room, and play your audition. Playing order will be randomly selected by computer and POSTED IN THE WARM-UP AREA (Gym). Students should go there FIRST. (Students should not ask the monitor what their number is--they must check in the warm-up area themselves.) Then, students should go to the try-out room and sign-in next to their number. Tryout material (etude excerpts with cuts and chosen scales) will be posted by each room at that time. Scales do not have to be memorized - students may use their scale sheet and music during the audition. Make sure that you arrive early so that you have time for an adequate warm-up, and so that you are allowed to play. You are ONLY allowed to warm-up in the gym. Students who miss their audition time will not be allowed to try-out late without prior consent. NO DELAYING TACTICS!  If for some reason a student must play early or late, they ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT change numbers.

Students in grades 10-12 are auditioning for HS NCDA and OMEA honor bands. Both auditions take place at the same time. Students in 9th grade are auditioning for the JH NCDA honor band.

High School Bb Clarinet auditions are separated into two rooms this year. One room is designated for scales and sight reading. The other room is designated for audition etudes.

All percussion auditions are separated into three rooms. HS percussion rooms are: Keyboard - Percussion Studio, Timpani - Band Room 3, and Snare - Small Choir Room. Auditions begin with Keyboards in Percussion Studio. JH percussion rooms are: Keyboard - Band 2, Timpani - Band 1, and Snare - Choir Room.

Results will be posted outside of the gym approximately one hour after all the students of the same instrument have completed auditioning. 

Best of luck, students. We are rooting for you!!
