Weekend Update 12-13-19
Dear M100 Families, Congratulations to all of our band students for a fantastic week of concerts! Jazz, Percussion, and all the concert bands had outstanding performances this week! That’s not all – we have 5 students in the All Region Orchestra and their concert is this Saturday at 5:00pm at Baylor University in the McCrary Music Building. Several of our freshman will be auditioning for a spot in the Freshman All Region Band this Saturday at Shoemaker HS as well. Also – A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU for supporting our Winter Guard students! They made $500 selling goodies at the concert! Thank you all so much!
Big Thank You to our boosters for their constant support AND to Mrs. Cobb for her endless work with our uniforms! Couldn’t do this without all of the support! I truly appreciate all of you!!!!

9:30am – judge’s meeting (all directors will be in this meeting)
10:00am – auditions begin
No way of knowing when auditions will finish – depends on the number of students auditioning, judge panels, etc. Please read on…
This will be a short audition but we have no actual idea of when each room will finish. We are not planning on any student leaving the audition before the entire group is done. Please contact Mrs. Gill if there is a concern. Thank you.
Concession stand and warm-up will be in the cafeteria and signs will be posted as to where the audition rooms will be located. There is to be no playing in the halls. Keep cafeteria clean – pick up after yourselves.
Students will be made aware of the electronics rules and how to properly behave in the audition room. TMEA now encourages us to turn in information on schools where students disrespect the audition process and letters of reprimand can be sent to directors and administrators if your students cause problems during the auditions.
Students should wear comfy clothes, bring all music (measures numbered), pencils, books to read, water, snacks (may not be able to eat in audition rooms but water is ok), homework. Phone can be in the room with you but must be turned off.
