Any student that is not in attendance or is tardy after the downbeat has started will be AUTOMATICALLY removed from the Honor Music group for the duration of the event. NO EXCEPTIONS. Students MUST leave early enough so they arrive with plenty of time for each audition and rehearsal.
  4. Thursday night following the final auditions ALL acceptance/rejection emails will be sent out.
  5. This year alternates will be designated for each instrument to ensure replacements for someone if they are late or have a family emergency and are no longer eligible or able to participate.
