What is All-Region? All-Region Band is an honor band that is made up of the top students in the local area. The All-Region Band annually works with a professional clinician and performs a concert of high level music.

Who can audition? Only current 7th and 8th graders can audition.

How do auditions work? Students prepare music and come to All-Region auditions to compete. Instruments will audition anonymously for five judges, playing cuts from the All-Region Music and ATSSB Scales. Each student is given a score based on playing ability. The top percent from each instrument are then put into the All-Region Band.

Additional Information:

  • The Kemp Directors will be judging the contest and should only be contacted in case of emergency.
  • Students will be monitored by chaperones.
  • If you are planning on  checking your student out after they audition, you must make arrangements with a director before November 29th. Please bring a signed note or email us no later than November 28th.
