There are several opportunities available to 7th and 8th grade Band and Chorus students that would allow them a chance to grow as musicians and performers. Students should speak to their director as soon as possible to receive applications and music prior to auditions. Applications and fees must be given to the director before the due date in order to audition. Below are non-school related musical activities available to those 7th and 8th grade Band and Chorus students. Many are audition based and would require the student to perform alone in front of a panel of judges prior to selection. Should your band or chorus student get selected, first rehearsal dates are listed below.
