UMass Honor Band & Clinic

SEMMEA Members,

This school year UMass is excited to once again be holding our annual honor band/clinic here on the UMass Amherst campus on February 10, 2018.  This will be our 33rd year hosting this event, which offers students an opportunity to perform in a high level ensemble and we are working to offer educators professional development as well.  Registration for this event will close on December 8th.

Senior Band Piano Audition

The Senior Band is in need of a piano player for this year’s program.  If you have a student that is interested in auditioning, we will be using the attached piano selection from Revelry.  You will need to register piano audition students along with your other students.  In addition to the required piece, students will be required to perform sight-reading and all major scales.  Use the attached All-State Scales document for reference on how the scales should be played.  (Note:  This is for reference only.  All major scales are required, but minors and modes are not.  Also Chromatic is not required)

Revelry – Piano

UPDATE: Students auditioning for piano may audition for another ensemble.  However, if the student is accepted on both piano and another ensemble, the student will be placed in the concert band on piano.  The student may only receive and All-State recommendation on the other instrument in which he/she auditioned.
