Hello GEB,

Please see below for details 12/03/18-12/08/18:

TMEA Region 3 High School All-Region Phase II Auditions 12/03/18

Thank you to all who participated today in the Region 3 High School All-Region Phase 1 Auditions. If you were selected to advance, Phase 2 will be held at Berkner High School again on Monday, December 3rd. Sign-in time will be at 5:00 PM for all students. Please bring $5 for the AREA fee, should you advance. Report to the contest office before leaving the building. PRACTICE OPPOSITE CUTS FROM THAT OF PHASE I!

The clarinets will be divided into 3 rooms, with 3 separate judging panels. Students will rotate rooms.

Orchestra: Following the completion of Phase 2, students who play orchestral instruments must report back to the audition room within 20 minutes. The monitor will go over All-Region Orchestra assignments. Once Orchestra seats have been filled, will be dismissed and final results will be tallied/posted. Applicable instruments include: piccolo, flute, oboe, english horn, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trumpet, trombone, bass trombone, tuba and percussion.

*as a reminder, all WS students are to be ready to rehearse at 9:00 AM on Monday, rather than 8:20 AM. On Tuesday, however, we will start at 8:20 AM as usual.

Things To Be Thinking About…

1) RISD Chamber Music Festival – students must get solo approved with lesson teacher or director by the final exam date. Proof of purchase for both the solo and accompaniment must be shown to receive 50% percent of the final exam grade.

2) Honors Level Band papers (for those who signed-up) are due by Dec. 14th. Students must attend two professional performances or other performances approved in advance by the director each semester in the student’s respective Honors area.  Documentation of these performances will include a program and a minimum two page critique of each performance.  The paper must be typed 12 point, Times New Roman font, double-spaced and must reflect the writing quality, content, and construction expected of an Honors student. Students must also complete a research paper each semester on a topic approved by the director. The paper must be a minimum of six pages typed 12 point, Times New Roman font, double spaced, and include a work-cited page.  A minimum of three sources is required.  The paper must reflect the writing quality, content, and construction expected of an Honors student.

Thank you,

Mr. Marquez
