LGPE Performance Results

On Tuesday March 5 all three of our Concert Bands performed at the Georgia Music Educators District 5 Large Group Performance Evaluation hosted by Chattahoochee High School.  All 3 Ensembles did a GREAT job!  Each Band recieved 4 scores from four different adjudicators evaluating their performance efforts.  Symphonic Band II earned two Superior and two Excellent ratings, and Symphonic Band I and Wind Ensemble recieved all Superior Ratings.  We are very proud of our Raider Bands!

Missing Flute Etude Tempo Marking

The tempo for the first section of the flute placement etude is quarter=72 bpm.  The etude on this website has been updated to reflect this addition!

Symphony LGPE

The 2019 Symphony LGPE (large-group-performance-evaluation) is on February 14 @ Northview HS. Call time next Thursday is 4pm (right after school).  Will board buses at AHS, need to be IN WARMUP at 5pm;  the performance is 5:45pm.  Of course the concert is FREE - should be alot of fun!!


Placement Auditions

The 2019 placement audition etudes are now on the website.  The audition should include all 12 major scales (multiple octaves when possible) in 2.5 minutes or less, plus the placement etude that is posted.  Details on how that video should be uploaded to OneNote will be posted in OneNote content library.  How well you pay attention to instructions and details will have an effect on your placement score.  IF YOU ARE 2019 ALL STATE BAND (middle or high school) - you will not need to submit the scales portion of the audition.  Deadline for submission will be March 18, with 5 points being deducted from your total score for each day after 3/18.  This gives you 7+ weeks to prepare.  GOOD LUCK!
