I’m very excited to have your students audition for the All-District Jazz band. In this letter should be found all necessary information for audition preparation. The auditions will run in conjunction with District Band Auditions on November 3rd at Warrensburg HS. Auditions will start at approximately 9:00 a.m. We will utilize two rooms again; one for Rhythm and Trumpets, the other for Trombones and Saxes. The cost for auditions is $10.00 per audition and must be paid for prior to or on the day of auditions. Please make all checks out to WCMMEA.
We will utilize Set 3 from the Jazz Audition Materials. The etudes can be found at www.moaje.org. They are available for free download on the website. The other two selections are from Approaching the Standards and Blues in All Keys. Please contact me if you are having trouble finding the materials, I would love to help you get them.
Rehearsals for the 2018-2019 All District Jazz Band will take place on Friday, January 11th and Saturday, January 12th, 2018. The rehearsal location for Friday night will be at Warrensburg High School and the rehearsal/performance on Saturday will be held at Smith-Cotton Junior High in conjunction with the Junior High All District Band on January 12th.
This year, we will continue to utilize the online registration system for jazz auditions. See below. If you have any issues or questions with the online system, feel free to email me.
Our clinician this year will be announced soon!
We look forward to your student auditioning. Thank you!
