I would like to encourage our 7th & 8th graders to sign up to audition for the District IV Middle School Honor Bands. This is a unique opportunity for selected students to perform with outstanding musicians from throughout the Greater Baton Rouge area. Membership in these prestigious groups is a great addition to any young musician’s resume! Composer William Owens will even conduct this year’s top honor band.
If Selected for the Band
Rehearsals and the concert are held during “Honor Band Weekend” (no school missed) on the campus of Southeastern University in Hammond. Students spend the weekend overnight there. The CMS Booster Club provides chaperones and arranges hotel and transportation accommodations. Students will be required to pay a portion of the hotel fee, approximately $50-75, TBD.
Students must be present for 100% of all rehearsals and the concert in order to participate.
If you would like to sign up for the auditions, please sign the form below and send with the $10.00 audition payment (cash or check to CMS Band Boosters) before Nov 1!
