Symphonic Winds/Concert Band Auditions

As we near the end of marching band season, it’s time to start looking ahead to our concert season.  Our audition process will be different this year due to our timeline.  Auditions will be held after school, in a one to one setting.  Each student will come during their scheduled block, and audition individually for Mr. Smith, Mr. Sterling, and/or Mr. Good.  We will have exact details in the following weeks.

•  All students will be asked to perform 1-2 scales and 1 chromatic scale.

•  All woodwind and brass students need to perform the required excerpt you were given last spring.  You can click here to get a new copy  

• Percussion excerpts will be distributed by Mr. Good

2020 Band Night/Senior Night

•  Gates to the stadium will open at 6PM.  We have a few tickets available.  If you need an extra, please have your student request one through Mr. Smith.  No tickets will be given away at the gate.

•  7PM- The PHSMB will march into the stadium from the high school.  Not only are we going to perform our shows for you, but we will try to give you a bit of Friday night flavor with our traditional march-in, yelling through the tunnel, etc.  Feel free to make as much noise as you want as your Perry High School Marching Band enters the stadium.  In a year of strangeness, we are looking forward to having some fun and a bit of normalcy.  Let’s make a fun and positive atmosphere for our band members tomorrow night.

•  After our entrance we will perform Pre-Game, recognition of seniors, and the National Anthem.  Following Pre-Game and Senior recognition, we will perform our 2020 halftime show followed by our exit of the stadium.

•  It is imperative that you wear a mask to this event.  If you are uncomfortable wearing a mask, we are offering a live stream of the performance.  The link for this will be available tomorrow, and we will share it via the band website.

•  Doors for students will open at 6:15 PM.  Warm up at 6:40.  Dress for the evening is jeans, band shirt, band shoes.

•  Seniors- please follow the timeline given to you by Mrs. Russell.  If you want your uniform jacket for your individual picture, Mrs. Stuart will be available at 5:30 PM.
