I have received a few emails regarding when the wind audition results will be released so I wanted to inform everyone as to why there is a delay.
Because of how we had to receive the wind auditions this year, there were several students that have had technical difficulties. We have been able to work with these for the most part. We do not want to send a results list out to everyone until we have the majority of these situations worked out and submitted. Sending the list too early would create confusion as we add to the list because some students would shift chairs and/or band placement. Please be patient as we work through this process. I also want to clarify that these auditions are meant to be used to place the wind students in the appropriate band class for the 2020-21 school year and for chair placement purposes. As long as you have participated in our wind auditions, you are a member of the Milton Band. We must have the audition, however. Below is the list of students by which we have received auditions. You will notice that the students at the top have missing parts of your audition. Please just go ahead and rerecord these if you are one of those students. Yes, we have looked everywhere for them. No we did not find them. Just rerecord those parts. You can find that audition info by CLICKING HERE. If you are reading this and do not see your name on this list, this means that we did not receive you audition. Please submit ASAP. Again, CLICK HERE for audition info. If you have technical problems with this process, please contact us so we can work through the situation. We will also communicate with each of those individuals directly shortly. Remember, new woodwind and brass marching students will start on July 6th. All returning and new Winds and Brass will be together starting July 13th.
All Guard and Percussion students must attend the percussion and guard camps beginning on July 6th as part of your audition process. There is nothing you need to prepare right now. This is simply for us to place you on the appropriate equipment, i.e flag/rifle, front ensemble/battery, etc. We will communicate anything that you will need to prepare if the need arises.
Finally, I do want to inform everyone of potential class number caps for the new school year. The county is currently working with the health department, principals, program leaders, teachers, coaches and more to determine the best route for classes. This includes all organizations, clubs, classes, sports, etc. for the entire county. Other counties are all planing through the same situations. Please understand that if there are guidelines to place a cap on classes or other items, we may need to adjust the band class sizes, potentially even creating a 4th concert band class. Again, EVERY CLASS AND ORGANIZATION in the county would have to work with the same guidelines. I do not know what these will be or even the extent of the possibility. I'm simply communicating with you of this potential. Again, we will work through any situation and hurdle in our way because that is what we do. :-) Thank you for reading through this and I hope you are staying safe and healthy!
