All-Region Band

All-region band tryouts were held on December 9, 2023. 7th, 8th, and 9th graders were asked to perform 4 measures of 3 prepared pieces, 3 memorized scales, and to sight-read a piece they’ve never seen before.

“I’m a little nervous, I feel like its gonna be scary when I arrive. At the same time, the judges wont be visible, so it won’t be too bad. I’ve never done all-region before; this’ll be a new experience for me,” Hailey Hill, 8th, said the day before auditions.

Auditions were held at Joe T. Robinson Middle School in Little Rock. Band members would first enter the “prepared room”, where you would have your music and instrument only to practice. Then they would enter the “empty room” where they were only allowed their instrument.

“It was kind of scary, but it all paid off,” Heather Davidson, 8th, said. Davidson got the part of fifth chair euphonium second band.
