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

Football Ticket Info

The PHS athletic office will be open at 3:30 on Wednesday’s to sell tickets to band members.  For now, each student may purchase up to three tickets.  We are asking that you try to purchase your tickets to see your band member on or before Wednesday of each week.  This will allow the athletic office to calculate attendance for game night.
