The CJMEA Region Band Audition are auditions for middle school students to have a chance to get into an honors band.

The auditions are for middle schools all over Central Jersey, and there is no limit for the amount of students to audition.

Students will show up at a school on January 27, 2018, and will be placed in three different rooms to be judged by multiple music instructors. In addition, they also have to attend four rehearsals and one concert.

But it isn’t as easy as it seems to be accepted into the honors band program. WMS band teacher Ms. Benkert says, “They will have to have to know a lot of scales, perform a solo, and site read, which they haven’t done before.”

Benkert also says that some of the benefits of participating in this audition is that it “gives them a challenge, and make them play a lot of music.”

But how do the participants feel about this audition? Seventh grader Leon Wu is a tenor saxophone player here at WMS who is auditioning for regional band.

Wu says that the auditions are “very important,” to him and  thinks that it could “make him better.”

Good luck to those who are auditioning!
