All Region Band Auditions were hosted at the Huntsville High School Band Hall on Friday, December 1st, and two of our own will move forward to area competition.

“All region requires a very high level of technical ability and also requires a lot of individual practice time. It isn’t something that is taught in class together. We do this to push them as individual players, and we encourage anyone else that is interested in it,” Director of Bands John Green said.

Many schools traveled to Huntsville in order to compete for a spot in Region Band.

“The region contest is part of the all state contest, so the first step is region, then area, then state. Each student is auditioning on three etudes that they have to learn, and they have to memorize the twelve major scales. Each etude and scale is worth a certain number of points,” Green said.

Two students from Huntsville High School qualified for area; senior Katie Williams, and senior Jarrett Conner.

“It felt good to advance, because it shows that my hard work was enough to get me to the next level,” senior trumpet player Katie Williams said. “I hope to perform the way I’ve been practicing when I go to area, and I am determined to give it my all.”

Approximately 6 students tried out at All Region, all of whom performed great.

“I have done it every year. I have more confidence in myself now than I did in middle school. It’s been a great experience, and I feel confident about myself,” senior saxophone player Caitlyn Tucker said. “I think everyone should partake in it if they get the chance. It is a wonderful opportunity, and can open up so many doors for you if you let it.”
