All-District Jazz Band

Please use the registration system located at http://nemmea.org/registration/ to add your students for the Northeast Missouri All-District Jazz Band.  They must be registered by November 3rd at 11:59 PM in order to avoid a late fee of 25.00 per student.  Be sure to mark your students that are only participating in jazz auditions as Jazz Only in the dropdowns.

Auditions will take place at Moberly High School on November 11th coinciding with the NEMO All-District Band Auditions.  The Clinic and concert will take place on February 17th at Macon, MO coinciding with the NEMO Junior High Honor Band Clinic and Concert.  Please check out the MOAJE website for the audition material at http://moaje.org/.  This year’s audition material is Set #2.

This year’s NEMO All-District Honor Jazz Band director is Danny Watring, who is the retired director of bands at Grandview, and is currently working at NWMSU as a percussion director.  I really want to encourage you to invite your kids to audition, as you don’t have to have a jazz band in order for your students to enjoy jazz and work up the audition material.   Some years, we end up with some sections auditioning just a few students.

Please contact Jamie Baker for further information.
