The annual auditions for the Texas Music Educators (TMEA) All-Region Jazz Ensemble will take place Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Clark High School.
This annual competition is open to band students who play saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, guitar, bass guitar, or drum set. It is not necessary to be a member of the O’Connor Jazz Ensemble to participate. See one of the O’Connor Band directors to obtain the audition music.
“Panther” Band students are highly encouraged to participate, as preparation for these auditions provides an excellent opportunity to develop and enhance their jazz performance and improvisation skills. Additionally, the auditions offer an opportunity for students to be recognized for performance excellence among their peers in Region XI, as well as the possibility for advancement to the prestigious TMEA All-State Jazz Ensemble.
The Clinic and Concert is to be held at O’Connor on November 10 & 11, 2017
