Region Band Competition

Students from across our region participate in this audition.  The audition material consists of scales and two prepared pieces.  Students are judged by a panel(s) of five judges who sit behind a partition to listen to each student perform their music.  This process protects student anonymity and the integrity of the audition process.  The top students are selected from these auditions and receive the honor of participating in the All Region Band Clinic and Concert (see below).   Selection to the All Region band is one of the highest honors a middle school student can achieve.  The bands rehearse on a Friday evening and Saturday morning culminating with a concert performance early Saturday afternoon.  The students may order a CD/DVD recording of the concert performance.  T-shirts and plaques are also available for purchase.  The concerts are performed at one of our local high schools and admission is free.
