2016 Marching Percussion Auditions

Now for the moment that you have all been waiting for, the dates for the 2016 Marching Percussion Auditions.

These will be similar to last year. The goal of these five workshops are to help steer you in the direction of the section that will best fit your current skills and the needs of the ensemble. Then we will have individual auditions which will lock in the placements for the ensemble. These dates are required for all members 8th grade through 11th although we do understand if you have a conflict. Please be sure to communicate those to myself and Mr. Muzquiz as soon as possible. Keep in mind that if you miss rehearsal, you are likely to fall behind, so be sure to work to keep up.

We are looking for students who embody the ideal GEB band member and percussionist. This includes a positive, work hard attitude; willingness to practice regularly and demonstrate consistent improvement and growth on your instrument; preparedness and promptness.

Here are the dates:

Tuesday, March 15th 5:30pm-8:30pm
Thursday, March 24th 5:30pm-8:30pm
Saturday, April 2nd 9:00am-1:00pm
Tuesday, April 19th 5:30pm-8:30pm
Thursday, April 28th 5:30pm-8:30pm
May 12th and 13th: Auditions

Please note that for the Saturday rehearsal, we will be possibly inviting a guest clinician as well as doing some sort of pizza party type thing after.

You will receive music packet very soon.

Good luck to all.

-Mr. Schmuck
