ORHS Band Seating Auditions
Wednesday, January 3rd
Sign ups for auditions will start tomorrow, Monday, during Band.
At that time Mr. Millligan will let all students know what instruments are auditioning at what times so that they may plan their schedules for that day well in advance. Save all questions for Mr. Milligan until after he has presented the required information.
Students will sign-up for a specific audition time, and should
arrive early depending on audition time,
at the school to properly warm-up. We have hired independent
judges for all sections. We do this to allow for an impartial evaluation,
and to provide the students with an opportunity to experience performing
for a "stranger" for evaluation. Hopefully, this will help the students
be better prepared for Sr. Clinic auditions, as well as college
The audition will consist
of all 12
a full range chromatic scale, the ORHS Band Audition prepared piece, and a brief sight-reading selection.
The auditions will help determine the best placement for each student.
The audition will be a grade for this grading term with the specific requirements forthcoming.
