Auditions - December 1, 2018

Hosts - Melanie Morley, Siobahn Jenkins

The YCMEA JH Honor Band is a group of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students selected by audition.


The auditions are held at Woodard Jr. High School, located at 2250 8th Ave. The auditions are ten minutes long and are held from 8:00 am - 12:00 pm.

Students are asked to prepare the two etudes on the audition sheet and memorize scales in the concert pitches of C, F, Bb, Ab and a one octave Chromatic scale. They will also be asked to sight-read a short selection at the audition.

If you have a student selected for this group, you will be required to be at every rehearsal. As a director of an honor band student, you will be required to rehearse the Honor Band music with each of your students who are selected. Do not send them to rehearsals unprepared.
