2020-2021 Senior Regional Orchestra
The Senior Regional Orchestra event has been canceled for the 2020-2021 school year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. However, they are still doing auditions in a virtual form for those that "would have made it" to have an All-VA Band/Orchestra audition in February. Details of how this will occur are forthcoming and will be released after school starts. Right now, Strings will have to have their auditions submitted no later than September 28. Most Woodwinds and Brass will be due before October 19, and Bass Trombone, Tuba, & Percussion will be due before November 3.
There will be no sight-reading component to this year's audition. File format and other details are forthcoming.
Use links below to download scales and the etude (same as All-State 2020 audition).
The bottom button opens up a sheet with all of the scale requirements for all of the instruments that have to be submitted for the audition.
2020 - 2021
STUDENT BAND STAFF
Below you will find the staff list for the 2020-2021 school year. Congratulations to everyone! I believe this will be a great year, no matter what form it takes. We also had to do the interview/selection process a little different this year due to COVID (who to interview, number of people to interview, time constraints, etc.). The adult staff is very excited about this year’s student staff and believe you will be great for these roles. Thanks for your patience and understanding throughout this process.
Here is the calendar for the upcoming school year. This isn't final, I have to input percussion/wind rehearsals for the Wind Ensemble/Percussion Ensemble.
The dates have adjusted due to Super Tuesday Election Day and the specific dates have been added for each ensemble for Concert Assessment.
Includes Dates for summer 2020 Marching Band!
