NEXT UP: All State Band Auditions

The first round of All State Band auditions will be Saturday December 8 AT AHS.  Alpharetta HS Bands has traditionally placed a high number of students in this ensemble, so working hard now is critical.  The audition also counts as the audition for the GMEA District 5 Honor Band (to be held in February, see calendar).  

We are hosting this GMEA event, which means we need to not only prepare our own auditions, we will also need plenty of "hands of deck" to facilitate the event.  Students, please see Mr. Jenkins to sign up to help at the event.  It is imperative that we do out part to ensure that auditions go as smooth as possible at the facility level.   WORK HARD NOW and prepare your audition.  See Mr. Walsh or Mr. Jenkins for help NOW - not December 7.

Good Luck!!

Please plan to join us!
