Re: Florida All-State Audition Music

Yes, that is the correct site. Florida does not have any advancement to region/area band. Each district holds a "recording" day where every students who is interested in auditioning can audition. All recordings are sent to 1 person per each instrument and that person listens to all of the recordings and decides from there. Each district is responsible for putting on their own all-district band. Many districts do not do this because they do not have the funds. Also, there are no etudes for all-district auditions. Districts typically pick excerpts from the music that will be used on the concert. |
Get started early on the music, because all-state recording auditions are usually in September.
