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.
