This audition is not required of 8th graders - this audition is required for all current 9-11 grade high school band students. Every year we have a few 8th graders who win seats in the top band. If you would like a shot at getting into the top band, this audition is for you. All current/future Centennial Band students (regardless if you are auditioning or not) should fill out this Google Form - this form contains information that the directors need to know in order to create class lists/rostes. (This form is also linked in the directions of the audition portal).
All auditions must be uploaded or sent by the end of the day Wednesday, March 23rd. Videos will upload anonymously. You may record your selections in one single take, or splice together several takes together into 1 Flipgrid audition video. If you are having trouble using the FlipGrid Platform and wish to share your audition another way (YouTube, Google Drive, etc), you are welcome to do so.
