Welcome all jazz band teachers,
As this school year gets under way, I hope you are making plans to bring students to the
North Central District Honor Jazz Band Auditions. Auditions will be held Saturday, November 3
and the High School Mini-Convention will be held at TBA
on Saturday, December 1.
Our clinician will be TBA
The NCKMEA High School Honor Jazz Band audition excerpts are identical to the
KMEA All-State Jazz Band 2012-13 audition excerpts
**The Optional Lead Trumpet and Bass Bone Audition will also be identical to the state requirements.
For the musical experts please contact the state Jazz Band chair at hsjazz @ksmea.org.
Audition applications and fees, $6 per student, are due by October 12.
Directors who are interested in judging in the Jazz area should contact me ASAP. Every director is required to judge/monitor/assist in some capacity (Band, Jazz, Choir).
