Jazz Region Auditions - 9/21/19

Audition Date: Saturday, September 21, 2019

Audition Location: Boswell High School | 5805 W. Bailey Boswell Rd., Fort Worth, TX 76179

Audition Start Time: 9:00 am

Enter at the West-most side of the building. The Eastside is all sports, gymnasiums, weight rooms, stadium access, etc. The Westside--through door #10--is all fine arts, band, choir, theatre, etc. Students with drum-sets, bass amps, guitar amps, etc. will want to be dropped off at door #10 and get set-up. Wind musicians should get dropped off at the cafeteria (Door 19), which you will see on a map that I will distribute soon.

Drum set auditions will be held in our big band hall, which is not carpeted but has a tile floor, so PLEASE make sure your drummers know to bring a rug to place beneath their drum-set. All drummers are encouraged to bring the set they're comfortable playing on. A house set will be provided for those who prefer not to bring one.

Similarly, guitarists and bassists are encouraged to provide their own amplification. However, we will provide a house amp for both guitarists AND bassists within their respective rooms.

The cafeteria will serve as a holding room for students who are waiting for their round or who are waiting for others to finish. We will have simple concessions available (pizza, chips, candy, water, soft-drinks, etc.).

Spirit Show and Varsity Show both performed at Home Games!

Hello Everyone
We have worked out a schedule with administration that allows the Keller Central Band to perform both the Spirt Show and Varsity Show at home football Games.
Generally speaking, the Spirit Show will be performed before the game around 6:30pm.
The Varsity show will be performed at Half Time.

We’re excited that all our students will have the opportunity to perform at home football games.
