DIRECTORS:

West TN has been awarded 2 additional All State spots for 2016.

We will be filling positions for the Eb Sopranino Clarinet in both the  9/10  and  11/12  All State Bands.

If you have a Clarinet student that made the Blue Band and was NOT selected to the All State Band in their grade, they are eligible to audition for the available position.

  • Auditions will be held during the All West Band and Orchestra Convention. 

  • Music is available for immediate distribution by contacting our WTSBOA          All State Chair, Barry Trobaugh:        barrytrobaugh@yahoo.com

  • The audition will consist only of prepared material and scales, performed on an Eb Sopranino Clarinet.

NOTE:  When selected, the student must remain in this placement AND will be exempt from audition upon arrival at the TnMEA Convention in Nashville.

This is a very exciting addition for our students.  Seize the chance to be a part of the All State Band !
