Honors Orchestra Registration Information

DUE DATE IS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16TH

Fee is $15 per student and includes our guest clinician, all clinics, performances, music, and lunch.

High School Students:

This year we will have two high school groups; one auditioned and one non-auditioned. To be considered for the top group  requires a recorded audition submitted via e-mail or snail mail. Selection to the other high school group will be by director recommendation. If a student submits a recording for inclusion in the top high school group and is not selected for that ensemble, they will automatically be considered and given preferential treatment for other orchestras.

Please fill out all of the information giving careful consideration to your rankings on the registration forms as we will use this in determining placement in the orchestras.

Please submit all information on your registration form and email to blaylock_sl@fortlewis.edu
