Greetings everyone! All of the All-State information is on the V.B.O.D.A. website with the exception of the student eligibility commitment form. Click here to download this form from this site. DO NOT ALLOW STUDENTS ACCESS TO THIS DOCUMENT! It is important that we maintain the integrity of the audition process and control who shows up at the audition. It is upsetting when a parent arrives at the audition with a form and an ineligible student in tow.
As always, thank you for your efforts. Good luck to your students!
Results of District Band Meeting:
-Due to exam conflicts, we will not be able to have Dr. Quincy Hilliard for next year’s district band. He will be contacted to see if he is available at a future date. (Passed with one opposed).
-Starting next year, district band will include a reading session Thursday evening from 6-9 P.M. Students with school conflicts (Thursday night only) will still be allowed to participate in the weekend. (Unanimously passed).
-We will begin using broadcast emails to inform directors of website updates as soon as the webmaster and district representative sort it out!
-District I will revise auditions to include the writing of a special set of standardized sightreading music for the event. (Unanimously passed). Anyone interested in serving on the committee please contact Allen Hall (firstname.lastname@example.org)
