Dear Band members and Parents, 


      The Pennsbury Middle School Honors Band, which is made up of 6th, 7th & 8th Grade students from all three middle schools is about to begin.  The Honors Band is an accelerated version of your home school 7th/8th grade band with the music being more difficult and demanding.  Your school band director will recommend that you try out for Honors Band if he feels you might have a chance to make it.  A recommendation does not guarantee that you will be selected.  Selection is based on your audition and the number of positions available on each instrument.  We are looking for the best available musicians to fill these positions:


12 Flutes
2 Oboes
16 Clarinets
2 Bass clarinets
2 Bassoons
2-4 Alto Saxes
2 Tenor Saxes
2 Baritone Saxes
10 trumpets
4-6 French Horns
8 Trombones
3 Baritones
2-3 Tubas
6 Percussion

Participation in the Honors Band last year does not guarantee that you will be selected again this year.  Hard work and a good audition will.  Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-7:45pm at Charles Boehm MS.  Rehearsals are Mandatory.  First rehearsal is November 28, 2017.
