All-State Orchestra

I appreciate your patience as I finalize the details for Woodwind, Brass and Percussion auditions for the 2024 All State Orchestra, Friday, Nov. 8th, Sat. Nov. 9th and Sun. Nov. 10th. Because of renovations to the Stevens Center, rehearsals will continue to be at UNCSA in Winston-Salem but the performance will be in the Benton Convention Center. It's a great experience and wonderful repertoire. 

Eligible Students MUST meet at least one the following:  

 

  • Current High School Students Who Participated in either the Western OR Eastern Regional Orchestra

  • Current High School Students who Auditioned for the 2024 All State Band on March 2nd, 2024. 

    • Students did NOT need to qualify for the ASB to be eligible. They only need to have auditioned. 

    • Students who auditioned on String Bass at the ASB Auditions are not eligible to audition. This process is only for non-string players.

  • Only the following instruments are eligible to audition: Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, Bb Soprano Clarinet, Trumpet, Horn, Trombone, Tuba, Mallet, Timpani, Section Percussion. (Sorry Low WW, Saxes and Euphoniums!)

 

NOTE: Students MUST audition using the 2023-2024 11/12 All State Band 

 

 

There is no sight-reading and there is no registration fee. 

If you are creating a new video, you simply use the script located in the packet linked below, video-record the student's entire solo in one video and all of the required scales in a separate video. File names must be labeled as follows: 

 

  • LAST_FIRST_INSTRUMENT_SCALES

  • LAST_FIRST_INSTRUMENT_SOLO

 

Then, fill out the information and upload the videos using the form below and you're good to go! 

 

ALL required information and most of your questions (including which scales are tongued and which are slurred) can be answered by carefully reading the All State Orchestra Audition Packet. Thank you!
