December 10 - Albuquerque Junior Youth Band Auditions

This is a great musical opportunity for your child.  The Albuquerque Youth Symphony is one of the premier youth symphony programs in the country and they will be holding middle school auditions on Saturday, December 10 for the Junior Band. The band is conducted by Sam Nesbitt from Eisenhower Middle School. We have had many THMS band and orchestra students participate in the program over the years and they have really enjoyed it. They are  looking for talented young musicians for the second semester: January through April 2017. They can join other dedicated musicians from across the Albuquerque area for superb music instruction and exciting performances! Click here to learn more about the Albuquerque Junior Youth Band auditions.
