General Annoucements

Highlighted below are highlights of things going on right now. Details can be found on various pages of the website. 

End of the Year Information - The school has now provided details regarding concert instrument returns and locker clean out. Information for band students can be found HERE. Complete information for all high school students can be found on the Jenks Public Schools Website..

Marching Band Information - Information has been updated and is now available on the 2020 Marching Band Page.

As the staff is looking ahead, we do recognize an imbalance of instrumentation for the upcoming year and want to try to fix that. There is an immediate need for tubas, a few mellophones, and a few baritones. If a student is interested in trying out that instrument to see if it is a good switch, then contact Mr. Jensen or Mr. Hillock

Honor Band - audition materials for OMEA All-State and NCDA Regional Honor Band are now available on the Honor Band Page. 

Tulsa Youth Symphony - audition information is now available. 

  • Audition applications for the 2020-21 season of the Tulsa Youth Symphony will be accepted beginning Wednesday, May 27 with details available on our Audition page – https://tulsayouthsymphony.org/auditions
  • Due to Covid-19 restrictions and our concerted effort to protect the safety of students, families and our staff, auditions will be submitted via recorded videos this year.
  • Excerpts will be posted on our Audition page 10 days prior to each instruments audition day.
  • Auditions will be submitted via video through Google Classroom the week of June 22 (each instrument will be able to see which day they submit their video on the Audition page).

In addition to the excerpts that will be posted later, each student should prepare a 3-5 minute solo of their choice.  

Private Lessons - hopefully you are still getting to study online with your private lesson teacher. If not, there are a few additional resources available. We have our list of Recommended Private Lesson Teachers. Many members of the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra are now teaching lessons to help out students in need. That list can be found HERE.

Spring Trips - we know it was super disappointing that the spring trips to had to be cancelled. All refunds have been finalized with amounts listed on the Washington DC and Atlanta trip pages of the website.
