Please look below for the 2022 Spring Assessment Information. This is for 10th/11th grade students in Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and Wind Ensemble.

This assessment also serves as the audition for Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, and Jazz Ensemble!

SPRING ASSESSMENT PROCESS (Week of April 18th-22nd)

  • Please read the 2022 Spring Assessment Info document carefully. It details exactly what you need to play for the assessment, including what choices you need to make. Play the most difficult scales/etude that you can play well. 
  • For Jazz Ensemble — remember that you must be enrolled in a concert ensemble and jazz band for at least one year (guitar, piano, and bass students are the only exceptions.) If you have questions about meeting graduation requirements while taking two band classes, please contact Mr. Carrothers.

2022 Concert Ensembles

2022 Jazz Ensemble

PLEASE NOTE: All current 10th/11th grade band students must complete this spring assessment as part of their grade. Results will also be used to place students in each of the concert ensembles. Students currently in Jazz Ensemble do not need to re-audition for next year. If you are planning to participate in two concert ensembles, you do not need to complete an assessment/audition for the second ensemble, even if you are playing a different (“secondary”) instrument.

Junior High Students that wish to audition for Symphonic Band or Wind Ensemble may complete this assessment as well. If they choose not to, they will be placed automatically into Concert Band. Please remember that ALL MST/CSI INCOMING 10TH GRADERS MUST AUDITION for Symphonic Band because of scheduling. If you do not audition, you may not be able to be in band which affects marching band as well!

Once the ensemble results are posted, we will take care of adjusting schedules for the students it affects.  Please note that in order to enroll in Jazz Ensemble, a concurrent Concert Ensemble must be taken for at least one year.  This does not apply for guitar, piano, and bass students.
