Audition material for OMEA, NCDA, and BOA is now available online. Students may request a copy of the music and scales if they do not have the materials. It is recommended that students start working on the music as soon as possible. An early start will relieve some of the pressure and workload that can be felt during marching season. Diligent and consistent practice are key to a successful audition.

Honor band audition material will also be the material used for concert band auditions. The general time and date for Concert band auditions has not been set yet.
