2017 Georgia All State Band Results!

Congratulations to the following 11 AHS Band members who have been accepted by audition into the 2017 All State Band; Ronnie Bian (FL), Caleb Colburn (FL), Olivia Colburn (FL), Megha Desai (CL), Daniel Gelber (Trpt), Taewoo Kang (Trpt - 2nd alternate), Mawuli Kpeglo (FL), Ethan Metcalf (CL), Ian Schwalbe (Trbn), Michael Tang (CL), and Arthur Yu (Trpt) - WE ARE VERY PROUD OF YOU!!

The All State Band event will take place on March 2-3-4, 2017 in Athens, GA.  More details to follow!



REMINDER:  Due to winter weather last weekend, the GA All State auditions for the state were cancelled by GMEA and moved to THIS WEEKEND (Saturday 1/14).  As a result we had to cancel our Winter Band Clinic here at AHS; we have 40+ band students who will be out of town taking the final audition.  This information was posted last week and has been discussed in classes all week.  This notice is only a reminder for those who might need confirmation that our clinic was indeed cancelled. 

Wind Ensemble Rehearsals begin THIS WEEK

Our Alpharetta High School Wind Ensemble is one of the premier high school bands in the state.  The quality and level of music performed does not happen by chance; it requires hard work hard and dedication from each and every member of the ensemble.  We have a limited number of scheduled Thursday after-school rehearsals beginning this week.  Each rehearsal is from 4-5:30pm.  It is a privilage to be part of this ensemble, so PLEASE make these rehearsals a priority on your schedule.  The rehearsals are ineffective when students are missing - we want and need to be able to count on you!  

Percussion Ensembles

Percussionists often get left out of the mix in a wind band rehearsal.  Because of that, we value and invest in our Percussion students at AHS by bringing in quality, trained percussion instructors to work specifically with our students on a weekly basis.  Every percussion student is in at least one Percussion Ensemble.  ALL Percussion Ensembles  rehearse EVERY MONDAY from 4-6pm, according to website calendar, exceptions noted.  It's tough to rehearse a small ensemble with students missing (most students have their own unique part), so please be sure these very important rehearsals on your calendar!  We will showcase our amazing percussion students in their very own "Night of Percussion" concert on Tuesday May 2, 2017.  

All State Auditions THIS WEEK

Due to winter weather last weekend, the GMEA postponed  All State Auditions to THIS SATURDAY January 14, 2017.  Same place, same times.  This decision is completely out of our hands (it's a state-wide decision) and was made in the best interest of all involved around the state.  Unfortunately with 40+ AHS students auditioning, this also adversely impacts our Winter Band Clinic scheduled for January 13-14, which has been cancelled

AGAIN, All State Band Auditions will be THIS Saturday Jan. 14th at Houston County High School -  same place, same time (see details below).
