Audition Window Times: This google sheet shows the assigned 30 minute window times. 

The All-Region auditions will take place on two dates, depending on what instrument your student plays and I’ve listed that below. Students will play scales, selected parts of their Region Etudes, and sight-read for a panel of judges to have a chance to be selected to be a part of the All-Region Band!
