District Band Auditons will be held virtually this year. This audition is completely optional for students, but a great opportunity to prepare music and be individually adjudicated. Depending on the state of the pandemic, there may be a District Band event in the second semester, where students that do well on the audition will be invited to participate with other top musicians across Loudoun County.
Students will create a recording of the audition material and submit it through a website called Opus Event. Auditions will need to be uploaded between January 4 and 8, 2021. Mr. Fairchild will be offering online help sessions with the audition material on Mondays from 8:30-9:45, and individual sessions can be scheduled with Mr. Fairchild before or after school by appointment.
Below is a folder with all of the audition information and material. Students can begin working on the scales and prepared piece at any time, and are suggested to attend at least one of the Monday help sessions for specific work on the material.
Below is a link to the online registration form. There is a link in the form to our Online Payment System. The audition fee is $12.
