Auditions for the 2018 Famous Maroon Band are now underway! High school seniors and community college transfer students are invited to audition this semester to join us for Fall 2018. There are so many reasons to join--music, friends, and experience of being in a "big time" SEC band--just to name a few. Scholarships are available to students regardless of major, and the time commitment is much less than most people think. Want to find out more? Click "How Do I Join?" at the top of the page. When you're ready to set up an audition, contact our office at 662-325-2713. Hail State!
The results of the 2018 MSU Honor Band Clinic auditions are listed on the attachment below. We ask that you review them closely to determine your status in our Honor Band program. As we have stated, the selections were based on the recorded auditions that were submitted in the month of November. Students in the Wind Symphony are listed according to their chair placement. All other participants are listed alphabetically and will receive their chair placement at the clinic. Because of the high number of applicants for this year's clinic, we were not able to offer everyone an opportunity to participate. If you were selected, please see the information in the PDF document and make sure you meet the deadline to confirm your participation. Additional information will be mailed to you before Christmas. If your name is not listed, we thank you for your audition, but we are unable to offer you a position at this time. UPDATE (12/18/17): The PDF packet now has additional information, including hotel information for the Starkville area.
