      STL All-Suburban Honor Band/Jazz Auditions: Oct. 24th

      Location – Clayton HS

       

      This opportunity is open to all 7th and 8th grade band students. It is NOT required. Students from across the St. Louis area who wish to participate are given the audition music well in advance. They prepare the music, as well as a few scales, and audition in front of a judge. Students who are accepted into the honor band then attend special evening rehearsals once a week and perform a concert on January 6th. It is a wonderful experience – the students have the chance to play in a top quality middle school band surrounded by the best middle school musicians in the St. Louis area and conducted by well-known and respected music educators.

      Solo and Ensemble Festival:  Saturday, April 8th All Day

      Location – Holman Middle School

       

      This is an opportunity open to all middle school band students. It is NOT required, but encouraged! Students prepare a solo or small ensemble piece, rehearse the piece, and perform it in front of a judge on the day of the festival. The judge provides a written comment sheet for the students, as well as a rating of 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. It is not a competition – the students are simply aiming to perform to the best of their abilities. The work required to prepare for festival will greatly improve your student’s skills!
