KMEA 4th District 9/10 All-District Auditions:
Saturday, Jan 17, 2015
Elizabethtown High School
9:00 AM – Registration Begins at Elizabethtown High School
Arrive in time to park and register
There is a $5.00 Registration Fee
Students must have the registration form provided by Mr. Centers which must be signed by a parent, the student, and Mr. Centers
10:00 – Auditions begin
2:30 – Approximate end of auditions (depends on number of auditions on Saturday)
The number of students that show up from all schools will determine the actual end time of auditions. Parents and students, please keep in contact with one another so you are aware of the end time and pick up. Since we are at another school, we cannot stay inside and wait for pick-ups once the event is over and the school is closed. Please be punctual in picking up students.
All students must stay until the auditions are complete, even if you audition early, in order to check the band list for those students selected to the All-District Band.
Students should dress appropriately for the auditions. Even though
the auditions are blind, it is best to look nice for auditions and to follow school guidelines for dress.
The audition will be “blind” meaning that the judge can’t see the student. Auditions will include the scales (rudiments for snare), etudes, and sight-reading.
The Central Hardin Band will present a concert at the Hardin County School’s Performing Arts Centers on Monday, Dec. 8 at 7:00 PM
Percussion arrive at 5:30 PM
Wind Players at designated locations at 6:00 PM
Students should wear their concert attire (all black for girls and black tuxedo with black bow tie for boys).
Reminder: The 2014/15 All-State First Round Auditions and the All-District Symphonic Band Auditions will be held Tuesday, November 25 at John Hardin High School.
Auditions begin at 7:00 PM, registration will start at ~6:30 PM
Registration is $8.00, folder fee for All-District (for students selected) is $5.00
Students will need to stay until results are posted. Students who are recommended for All-State Second Round Auditions will audition on Saturday, December 13.

This Friday is a home play-off game for the CHHS Football team. Marching Band wind, percussion, and brass will perform. Color guard and front ensemble may come and cheer with us – optional.
