Marching Band Woodwinds and Brass
A placement audition is held on the first day of Band Camp in August. All persons will read a portion of the music out of the marching band folder. We will have this ready at band camp; music is not sent in advance. Don’t worry, we are as inclusive as possible, and work to place everyone who is interested in performing in this ensemble! Just let us know you plan to be in the band by contacting the director, Dr. Stephen Kerr, at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will help you get ready! If you know how to play your instrument, we will teach you all you need to know in order to march with us. Even if you have come from a band program that does not march, we will teach you all you need to know to successfully march in the “Spirit of the Mountain!”
