District Honors Orchestra Auditions Tuesday Nov. 14th

District Honors Orchestra Auditions are Tuesday, November 14th @ Francis C. Hammond MS. 

ALL orchestra students have been given excerpts and scales back in September 
to prepare for this audition and all orchestra students are encouraged to do so. 

      Francis C. Hammond MS
      4646 Seminary Road
      Alexandria, VA 22304

Registration is 3:30 - 6:30pm, on a first-come, first-served basis. 

DO NOT SHOW UP BEFORE 3:30 because of the school buses. 

Unless you absolutely need an early number DO NOT to show up right at 3:30 as the audition line will be extremely long at that time. If your schedule permits, show up around 4:30 or so. Or even later. Just make sure that you are there before 6:30. 

It is $5 to audition and please have exact change. 

    Auditions are usually done by 8pm - and even earlier for many instruments. Violins tend to go longer as there are more students auditioning on violin. No results will be posted that evening. 

    Students who are selected will be participating in the 
District Honors Orchestra Event at South County HS January 4th - 6th. 

    Good luck to all students auditioning and please do not hesitate to email Ms. Haynes with questions.
