Weekly Update (1/18- 1/21)
This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!
Wow! What a week! I’ve learned so much leading into this week and I’m so ready to hop back in and get back to work with you!
I’m also so excited to have watched the 2021- 22 All State Symphonic Orchestra Concert with RJ Clines on Piano. It was such a high quality performance! When you get a chance, talk o RJ about what it was like rehearsing and performing with (what sounded like) a truly professional orchestra.
This week isn't crazy just some rehearsals. Come ready to work!

Music Ensemble Auditions
Music Ensemble Auditions which will determine placement in Wind Ensemble for the 2022-23 School Year will begin March 28th. The number of musicians in Wind Ensemble will stay about the same and most students entering the band next year will be placed in Symphonic Band as a result. This is good news for both ensembles! Wind Ensemble will be very competitive, and Symphonic Band will increase dramatically in size! Requirements for this audition will come out in February, but students can prepare by working on the following Scales in 2 octaves All State Pattern: G, C, F Bb, Eb, Ab, Db.
