CONCERT BAND AUDITIONS
All band students have received the audition material for concert band placements. The auditions will be held this Wednesday and Thursday (11/20 and 11/21). Students will sign up for an audition time. Most auditions will take place after school, with the exception of seniors with early release who may have the option of signing up for a time during 7th period. The audition only lasts about 10 minutes, and students are asked to show up about 30 minutes before their time to allow for warm up, etc.
STEP-UP INSTRUMENT SALES
Both Music and Arts and Rettig Music are offering “step-up” instrument sales – just in time for the holidays! These are a great opportunity for the students to move up to an instrument that is more suitable for high school – many of them are probably still playing on what are considered “beginner” models.
Rettig Music – 6323 Sawmill Rd.
Sale runs Nov. 20, 21, 22, 23
Music and Arts – multiple Columbus area locations – visit www.musicarts.com for more info.
