All State Band is comprised of individual band students from all throughout the state of Georgia who have auditioned for a spot in the Band and have passed two auditions. Students who pass their auditions will travel to Athens March 2 - 4 2017 to learn several pieces of music under the direction of very distinguished band directors. On the final day of this weekend, all of the All State Band ensembles give a concert. This is a widely recognized, highly esteemed event that is held throughout the United States in every state. 7th through 12th graders are eligible to audition for All State Band.
All State Band auditions are extremely competitive and are difficult to pass. Anyone who auditions needs to be able to read music as a basic requirement. Students who audition must practice required repertoire to audition.
At the All State Band concert in Athens, accepted band members must wear performance apparel as instructed. Students and their families are responsible for all lodging and food expenses (etc.) for the trip to Athens in March.
The SCHS Band Booster Club coordinates lodging and other details for All State Band participants from Sandy Creek HS.
