Auditions are held in September. Interested students should be serious about commitment and preparation since all excerpts/music are pre-college/college level.

        • Auditions will be on Monday, September 27th, 2021 at Justice High School.

Auditions are held in November every year and the selection is highly competitive. I want you to have a positive experience on preparing these scales/excerpts, not a frustrating one. It is recommended that you are already familiar with sharps/flats and are comfortable of playing scales comfortably. If you aren't sure whether you are ready to try out or not - please email/check in with Mrs. Collins.

        • Auditions will be on Monday, November 1st, 2021 at Robinson SS.

        • Discard any "2020" - they are for the 2021-2022 school year.
