Santa Clara County Honor Band

Post by Wildabeast » Wed Nov 27, 2002 11:43 pm

Just a reminder to those of you who are interested in this county that auditions are 2 weeks away. Make sure you've gotten the paperwork with all the proper signatures. Flutes make sure you have the All-State piece as the prepared piece, and percussionists make sure you have the audition exercises. Make sure you stick around for results so you don't miss the first rehearsal (and get booted out). Check your calendars, make sure rehearsal dates are clear (missed rehearsal = da' boot, no questions asked).

Auditions are at San Jose State Friday, Dec. 13th with the first rehearsal scheduled to begin Saturday morning, Dec. 14th. This year's guest conductor will be Ed Harris, Director of Bands at SJSU.
