Today is the deadline to get in your symphonic band audition videos. All of the information about the sym band, audition cuts, and how to make and submit the video have been posted on your Canvas homepage for a while. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Schapker, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The plan is that he will organize the videos into a file so I can judge them next week using just the audio file from the video. I hope to have results before the Thanksgiving break.
Last week, students submitted their videos to audition for the East Central Kansas District Honor Bands. We had 27 students earn positions which is truly impressive! There are four bands-the Jazz Band then the top Gold Band and the two equal Red and Blue Bands. All of these students have qualified to audition for the All-State ensembles which will be virtual this year. Unfortunately, the District groups will be on paper only. There will not be any in-person or virtual rehearsal or performance.
