Make checks payable to NOMS band and I will send one check to the district for all auditions. There will be a $25.00 clinic fee to cover bus, music, and conductor’s fees if selected to the band.
Audition Procedures – It will be the responsibility of the students/parents to provide transportation to Shelby East. Each audition will last only about 5 minutes. You will be given a specific audition time as soon as I get the schedule from the district coordinator. I would plan to arrive at least 30-45 minutes prior to your assigned audition time. Upon arrival you will check in, find your audition room, then proceed to the warm up room to warm up and practice until your audition time. Arrive at the audition room 5 minutes before your scheduled time in case they are running ahead. Results will be emailed to the directors the following day after all scores have been tabulated. For percussionists and any student who plays multiple instruments (ex. Bass Clarinet & Clarinet or Alto Sax and Bari Sax) you may audition on multiple instruments and are encouraged to do so. The auditions are $5.00 per audition. If you plan on auditioning on more than one instrument you will need to indicate your preference should you be selected on more than one instrument.
Audition Registration Procedure – Simply send me an email with the following info: 1) your intent to audition, 2) if auditioning on more than one instrument, indicate which instrument you prefer in case you are selected on more than one, 3) if you have another event on the day of the audition please indicate what times you will be available to audition between 9am and 2pm, 4) your T-shirt size in case you are selected. Then send in a check for the total number of auditions by November 14th.
