2018 All Area Permission Slip Auditions

Dear Parents and Students,

On Wednesday, January 31, 2018 marks another wonderful year of All-Area Auditions.  This year Essex High School in Essex, VA will host our audition.  Students auditioning need to report immediately at the beginning of 4th block (1:05 PM) to the music room.  We will be leaving during 4th block.  It takes about an hour to get to Essex HS.  Cost to audition is $5 – this has to be paid by January 30th.

We Should be done and home between 7 or 8PM.  I will have students to text/call once we get about 20 minutes away from the high school.  I do ask for one or two parents to chaperone in the cafeteria while I am judging.

Once we get to Essex HS, I will register you and make sure you are in the correct spot.  At that time I will be working as a judge or score tabulator.  As always, if you need assistance at the event, there are many volunteers that can help you as I will be unavailable judging students in an audition room.
