Hello Warrior Band family,
 
Thank you all for attending the holiday concert!  I feel that all three groups had exceptional performances.  It was lovely to see so many alumni and parents supporting our kids.  Now that we are through that concert, we are only 2 weeks until the end of the semester!  Woohoo!

All-Region Band auditions

Brass & Percussion Phase I (trumpet, horn, tenor trombone, euphonium, tuba, percussion) - December 7th at Mansfield HS
Woodwind Phase I (flute, Bb clarinet, oboe, bassoon, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone) - December 10th at Mansfield HS
 
For Phase I, please show up at Mansfield by 4:30pm.  Just a heads up (because I live in that general area), 360 south of 20 tends to get backed up starting at 4pm so plan extra time to get there.  The cafeteria is your warm-up zone.  All rooms are on the 1st floor and no students should be going upstairs for any reason.
 
Rooms
Trumpets are in D2, 3, 4, and 5
Horns are in B7, 8, and 10
Trombones are in H6 and H8
Euphoniums are in J4 and J5
Tubas are in J6 and J7
Percussion are using L1, band hall, and choir room.
 
Woodwind rooms should be available later in the week and I will email those out when I get them.
 
Phase 2 auditions - December 12th at Birdville HS
Students should be at Birdville HS by 7:30am.  Warmup is in the cafeteria.  For this audition, ALL STUDENTS go in the room at the same time.  This makes for a long audition so please prepare yourself!  Results will be posted near the cafeteria.  Please remember to bring $5 in case you make the Area B audition.  You must pay at the contest office prior to leaving the school.
 
9th Grade Region auditions - December 12th at Birdville HS
Students should be at Birdville HS by 12:30pm.  Warmup is in the cafeteria.  For this audition, students will be going into their rooms in groups.  At 1pm, students should go to their audition room to get their letter and group.  Results will be posted near the cafeteria.  
 
* If a student is in 9th grade and has a phase 2 audition, they do that in the morning.  If they make one of the three 9-12 bands, they are done for the day.  If they do not make a band, they stick around and do the 9th grade audition later in the day.  9th grade auditions DO NOT START until the phase two auditions are complete for their instruments.  *
 
And that's really it.  I hope to see many of you at our full orchestra concerts in a week...JV choir/orchestra is at MHS on December 14th (free) and Varsity choir/orchestra is at Fielder Road Church on December 15th ($10 adults, $5 students.  Proceeds go toward each program's Carnegie trip fund).
 
Best,
BSM
