All Honor, Symphonic, and Concert I Band members are required to attend a weekly sectional rehearsal, usually held before or after school. It is during sectionals that playing tests are administered and individualized and small-group instruction is given. Please do not schedule medical appointments during sectional time, as these absences will not be excused after the first few weeks of school.
Honor Band sectionals will begin during the week of September 2, 2019, and will run according to the schedule below. Following All Region Band auditions in late October, this schedule will be modified slightly to provide for the start of sectionals in the Symphonic and Concert I Bands.

SYMPHONIC and CONCERT I SECTIONALS
Sectionals will begin for these ensembles in November.
Sectionals allow the directors time to work on instrument-specific skills in small groups. They are a HUGE contributing factor to the success of our bands.
For more information, see the appropriate section of the band handbook.
