Audition times for round two are TBA, transportation will be on your own (112 miles from AHS, allow plenty of time to get there).
WE ARE SO PROUD OF EACH OF YOU!!!
ATTENTION ALL BAND STUDENTS: In the unlikely event of extreme wind, rain, flood, cold, heat, snow, earthquake, etc... and the school system closes for a day... and you are stuck at home with no assignment, now you have an assignment! If the school CLOSES for a weather day, DOWNLOAD this assignment.
YOU WILL NEED YOUR INSTRUMENT to complete. The assignment is due 3 days after the date the school re-opens. The completed assignment should be posted to your OneNote notebook. You will receive TWO grades - one for turning it in on time, the other for the quality of the content.
