The 2020 Forest Park High School Bruin Band Placement Auditions will take place over video submission via the online educational support site Flipgrid. All students grade 9 – 11 are required to audition to be considered for placement into Wind Ensemble. The wind and brass audition materials consist of two assigned major scales (memorized), and three audition excerpts. Percussion audition materials will consist of two snare drum excerpts that should be played on drum pad. The excerpts are denoted by red brackets on the material. If you do not have your instrument or music at home with you, I am currently interfacing with the Forest Park High School Administration to find the best and safest solution in retrieving and delivering instruments to students. The deadline for submitting the audition video will be May 1st, 2020, however special accommodations can be made depending on whether you have your instrument home or not. Results will be posted soon after. if you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
