Honor Bands

Audition Information

Students may now sign up to audition for OMEA All-State and NCDA Regional Honor Bands. Students in 9th grade are only eligible to audition for NCDA. Students in 10th - 12th grades may sign up for both NCDA and OMEA. Sign up sheets are on the board in the main band room. Entry Fees are $15.00 per each entry and band. 

Entry fees are due on or before Wednesday, September 30th. Students paying with cash must have the exact amount (change will not be made) in an envelope marked with your name, the amount, and what the money is for. 

Students paying with check can just turn in the check. Checks should be made out to Jenks Band with Honor Band Entry Fees written on the memo line. 

Students may use their trip fund account if money is in the account (you may not charge it to your trip account) and if a request is made to the trip fund manager, Jamie Dragon, by Wednesday, September 30th. 

Money may be turned in to Mr. Hillock or to a parent on Money-Fridays. 

Payment can also be made online by credit card on the Jenks Band Parents Website. Click HERE to log in and do that.

Fees due on or before Wednesday, September 30th. 

All auditions are being done online this year via audio recordings. All auditions must be recorded by a director and will be recorded with studio quality equipment. It should be noted that this is still an audition. Students will not get multiple attempts at recording their material. Only one take, just like auditions are when in Owasso or Moore. 

HS Audition Information: The audition window for HS First Round OMEA & NCDA is October 23rd - November 5th. All first round auditions must be scheduled and recorded during this time. A recording schedule will be set up as the audition window approaches. Results from these auditions will be posted on November 8th. The Second Round audition music will be posted on October 9th (no this is not a mistake - they are being posted before results in order to allow students enough time to prepare).

---------------------------

Audition music is now available for students who want to try out for OMEA All-State and NCDA Regional Honor Bands. No better time than the present to get a solid start on this material. If you do not own these books containing the audition etudes, we highly recommend that you purchase them. It is great material to have in your personal library, especially during this unprecedented time. If you are unable to do so, you may also contact a director to get a copy of the music. 

Click HERE for OMEA and HS NCDA audition material and scale information. This is for students in grades 10-12. 

Click HERE for NCDA Junior High audition material and scale information. Students should download both the scales and etudes for Junior High Set 1. This is for students in grades 8-9.

Information for the BOA National Honor Band of America has not been made availble yet. Students will need to read information thoroughly to be aware of deadlines, time commitments, and possible costs involved. Links will be provided once information has been made available.
