All-State Band Auditions
Auditions are happening for the 16th annual MSBOA Middle School All-State Band. Scripps has been represented in the All-State Band 14 times, involving a total of 33 students. They had a great experience playing with the very best in Michigan. This year, due to COVID-19, the All-State Band will be an honorary ensemble only and will not meet to rehearse or perform.
o $16.50 application fee
This fee is nonrefundable.
o Please inform Mr. Crimmins if you cannot afford the fee.
You need to prepare a short musical selection and a list of scales which you will receive before the audition window begins. You already know most of the scales.
Private lessons are helpful to assist you in preparing your material. You may ask your teacher for a list of private instructors if needed. Many private teachers are providing virtual lessons due to the pandemic.
You will “live record” your audition at home between Oct. 1 and Oct. 25.
o You will do this following an email link to the audition website.
o “Live record” means that once you start the recording, you cannot do another take. It is a one-time shot, like a live, in-person audition.
o Mr. Crimmins will provide instructions before the audition window opens.
You will find out in late November if you are selected for the All-State Band.
