AYSP Auditions!

Congratulations on a fantastic concert!

I am so proud of your performance at the concert on Sunday. Thank you for your hard work and dedication this semester. 

This week, AYSP high school auditions began and this Saturday are the AYSP auditions for Junior Symphony and Junior Orchestra. These two orchestras rehearse the entire year and are an honor to become members of. As I have shared with your already, if you are in 6th or 7th grade, I encourage you to audition for these two ensembles. If you are in 8th grade, I encourage you to audition for YCO, YO and YS. 

Orchestral music is a challenge for woodwind, brass and percussion players as every entrance is a solo with only 1-2 players per part. My years playing clarinet in the AYSP orchestras hold many great memories. I would love for you to experience all the fun I had in these groups. You can register for your audition at http://aysmusic.org/students/auditions/2017. If you have any questions, you can call AYSP at 875-1319 and speak with Ms. Siverson or Dr. Strong. 

Good luck on auditions and have a great end of your school year!

Mr. Nesbitt
