Posted now are the documents students will need for the D1 Honors Jazz Band audition.

The festival itself is District 1 Honors Jazz Festival Friday, April 7, 4-8 pm, Saturday 9-1, Concert at 3pm at Westbrook High School .

We decided for the betterment of the concert band to separate the jazz and concert festivals. Digital auditions for the Honors Jazz Band are due by January 27, 2017.

Students will record a video audition (not audio alone) by i movie, etc. They will post the video to Youtube and email the link to me at

I will confirm the receipt of each students email and forward the links to the adjudicators.

As audition chair of the jazz component through the ten year period of 2002 to 2012, I saw the enrollment decrease to less than ideal numbers.

My hope is by making this a separate event we can encourage our students to audition for this.

Please review the audition materials and process carefully. I have tried to make the process simple and eliminate any ambiguity.

If you have questions please feel free to call me at 767-3266 / 3831.
