Resuming Jazz Band Auditions for 2012-13

Dear Parents of Jazz Band Students in Grades 9-11,

I hope all is well!  


Congratulations to your student on an outstanding performance at one of the recent jazz festivals.  Our students from East and West played wonderfully and made us proud at both the Beavercreek and Lebanon Jazz Festivals!  Great job, students!  Now we will shift our rehearsal focus to the upcoming pancake breakfast and the Spring Jazz Concert.


Please find the attachment regarding the resumption of jazz band auditions for the 2012-2013 school year.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for all you do to support your student in jazz band!
