Auditions will take place May 1st – 3rd. Please be sure to read through the packet carefully to understand which excerpts are required and which are optional. I’ll explain more on Monday. Have a great weekend!
So excited that our trip is just around the corner! Don’t forget to attend our mandatory trip meeting at 7pm on Wednesday, March 29th, at JHS Cafeteria. All students must attend along with at least one of your parents. See you then!

Dear Orchestra Members,
Below are the orchestra placements for the 2016-2017 school year. Mr. Davis and I want for you know that we put a great deal of thought in to the placements and that each of your were placed in an ensemble that will give you the most opportunity for your musical growth to 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!
Later on this week, 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!
Thanks to all who applied to be an Orchestra Officer! Mr. Davis and I spent a lengthy amount of time carefully considering each candidate. We are happy to announce our officers for 2016-2017! Click Here
