ALL SOUTH JERSEY BAND
The All South Jersey Band is selected through auditions held each January. Hundreds of students audition from the south jersey region and approximately half are selected for this prestigious group. Students always grow from the experience win, loose or draw and always come back more mature musicians and students! This year’s audition is scheduled for SATURDAY, JANUARY 28 at Southern Regional Middle School in Manahawkin, NJ.
The audition consists of three parts…
1. Scales: Major scales up to four sharps and flats plus the chromatic scale (posted on google classroom).
2. Solo: Prepared piece (posted on your student's google classroom and listed HERE).
3. Sight-reading: The student must play a short piece never seen before.
Students selected for the band are required to attend 5 afternoon (4pm-7pm) rehearsals as well as the concert. Students who miss a rehearsal for any reason are not permitted to participate. Transportation is provided to all weekday rehearsals. Please visit www.sjboda.org/calendar for a listing of all rehearsal dates. Students are required to provide their own transportation to the January audition.
