Dear Orchestra Members,
Below, please find the orchestra placements for next school year. Know that a great deal of thought went in to these placements, and each auditionee was placed in an orchestra that will provide them the best opportunity to learn and shine. If you find yourself a little disappointed by your orchestra placement, remember a few things:
1) The Jasper Orchestra auditions are very competitive because of the very high quality of training you all receive at Rice and Robinson. The upside of this is that all of our orchestras are very much above average for their level and will be a rewarding musical home for you!
2) You are so much more than simply a person in a class period. Regardless of what class you are in, take it as an opportunity to excel and distinguish yourself in a positive manner. It will most certainly pay off for you in the long run!
Obviously we cannot field questions about your orchestra placement from over 200 students. If after some time you still would like feedback, please feel free to email Mr. Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mr. Davis at email@example.com
In the next day or so, you will all be receiving some music from our first concert next year — if you’re looking for something to practice over the summer, feel free to take a look at it! Have a great summer, and I can’t wait to see everyone next year!
This music is only for those 10th graders going to Plano West next year. If you are looking for the JASPER audition music, scroll down more.
PLANO WEST AUDITION MUSIC
Please sign up for an audition with Mr. Ross or Mr. Davis. Have a general after school time in mind for either May 11, 12, or 13.
Please find your audition music below by instrument. You will audition on May 4-6. Current 9th graders will audition in their orchestra class, and incoming 8th graders will sign up for an evening audition time with their middle school teacher.
