Virtual Auditions and Festival Information

October 21, 2020

We are pleased to announce that Western District will be having virtual auditions and a virtual festival at both the junior and senior level! 

Auditions will use the same repertoire as planned for this year. Students will record videos of themselves performing, and directors will compile these and turn them in. 

Senior registration deadline: November 6th

Senior audition deadline: November 14th

Senior results posted: November 21st

Junior registration deadline: January 8th

Junior audition deadline: January 22nd

Junior results posted: January 29th

The festivals will be one-day virtual events in March. The senior festival will be on March 13th, and the junior festival will be on March 20th. Students will work with composer/conductor clinicians, and afterward, submit recordings of their parts to be stitched into a virtual ensemble piece.
