MARCHING BAND TRACK HEARING PLACEMENT
We want to remind you that receving the music a week before WILL NOT affect your audition at all, as your placement within the ensemble is based upon how well you play, not how well you have the music memorized.
That being said, we do ask that you come to camp with the Richard Saucedo arrangement of the National Anthem memorized.
