The Audition date is November 16th, at Hale Center High School. The judges meeting will be at 2:30 a.m. The tryouts will begin at 3:00 p.m. Remember that you must be a member of both TMEA & ATSSB.
The Audition will consist of playing 3 scales, chromatic and cuts from both etudes
Audition material is posted on the ATSSB Region 16 web site and cuts will be posted at 7:00 pm Tuesday, Nov 14th.
Percussion will audition on Snare, Mallets and Tympani.

All other instruments will try out on cuts from the two etudes, and all scales!
The entry fee is $12.00 per student. There will be an additional $10.00 fee if the student makes the band. This will help me put together judging panels. All entries will be done online. Be sure and enter your students in the correct band. Make your check payable to ATSSB Region 16.
