All-State Bands

Students selected into the two All-State Bands are treated to a guest conductor and prepare a Saturday concert in Savannah with band students from all over Georgia.

2014-2015 auditions for District Honor Bands and All-State Bands will be combined into one audition on Saturday, December 6 at Dodgen Middle School.

To ensure that students are prepared and represent our band well, they will play for the directors at various "performance checkpoints" before each audition:
