All-District Band Auditions

The Central All-District Band auditions are EXTREMELY competitive auditions intended to provide an outlet for the most talented band students in a multi-county area.  Students who are placed very high in the all-district band may earn the opportunity to advance and audition for the North Carolina All-State Band.  Students who are interested in auditioning for all-district band should begin preparing their solo, scales, and sightreading over the summer.  Most students who are selected for the All-District Band also take weekly private lessons.
