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.
On Saturday November 3rd our Marching Raiders had a very productive day at The Milton High School White Columns Invitational Marching Band competition. We finished with straight Superior ratings and placed FIRST in class 4A. Our Guard finished with the highest scores for the entire event - way to go! In addition our Band earned “most entertaining show” for the entire event.
We are very proud of our Marching Raiders for a great season and a job well done
