I want to quickly call your attention to some changes this year for our California All-State Honor Band Auditions so that you can best prepare for them in the coming months.
- High School submitted recordings– will be evaluated for ensemble placement as well as chair placements. There will be no live audition this year.
- Percussionists for both JH and HS– may audition for ANY OR ALL of the following areas:
- Timpanist- Upload Timpani Solo and Timpani Roll
- Battery/Auxiliary Percussion: Upload Snare Solo, Snare Roll and for HS only- Tambourine & Cymbal Excerpts
- Mallet Specialist: Upload Mallet Solo & Chromatic Scale (If a marimba is not available, any mallet instrument will be accepted.)
All detailed information will be in the Recording Instructions which will be posted soon. Please pay careful attention to these!!
