Midwest Music Festival
Saturday February 25th, 2012

Our large ensemble festival for the Wind Symphony and Symphonic Band is coming up on Saturday, February 25th. The festival is a required event for each performing ensemble and will take place in the morning. Information, a schedule, and directions are attached in this letter.

Description of event:
The Midwest Music Fest is one of the largest concert band festivals in the Chicago-land area. There are 40 high schools represented at the festival and the judging is outstanding. The festival is competitive in nature with caption awards for percussion, brass, woodwinds, and esprit de corps.

Location and time:
The symphonic band will perform at 9:30AM and the wind symphony will perform at 10:30AM. The early performance times are to allow winter percussion students to return to school to leave for their IPA show. We are also performing early so that students can return to help out with the craft fair.

All students should arrive at school at 7:00AM. The bus will leave at 7:30 for Lemont.

Lemont High School is located at 800 Porter St. Lemont, IL.

Parent attendance and chaperones:
Ticket prices for the day are $7.00 for adults and $4.00 for students. Performers do not need to buy tickets. This event will take place on the Saturday of our Spring Craft Fair, so any parents that would like to attend that are also volunteering for the craft fair might want to work their schedules accordingly.

Student dress:
Dress for the performance is full concert uniform.

Please return the permission form on Tuesday, February 21st.

Hello everyone. Please check the calendar for the audition date that has been added on 2/27. This is a Monday. I will all of the audition information to Lynelle Balediata to be posted on the www.vjabands.com website. All audition music will be posted and I will hand it out to you tomorrow as well. 

The music is comprised of next years IMEA audition music and your IMEA scale sheet. All current students MUST audition for placement next year. Freshmen who did not audition for this year, this will be new for you. Please post any questions regarding auditions here. 
 
I will set up times as soon as I know how many 8th graders will be auditioning. Winter Percussion folks, we will get your auditions in first, so that you can attend rehearsal on time or just slightly late. Auditions will begin at 5 and they are blind, meaning you will not see the judge and they will not see you.
 
Music can be downloaded under Ensembles --> Audition Music tab at the top.
