I sure hope you are all enjoying your summer. I sure am! (At least we have a pay raise to celebrate! ) Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, our high school percussion solos are just not gonna be ready for a little while longer and I know everyone wants to know what to begin preparing. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the release of new high school percussion solos for one more year. This means we will be using the 9/10 and 11/12 solos from 2020-2021. Ruth has updated the website with the details (https://www.ncbandmasters.org/audition-requirements).
My committee of percussionists has looked at the preliminary draft of these solos but we would really like some feedback from non-percussionist band directors as well. If you are someone who would be interested in looking them over and providing thoughts (percussionist or not), please send me a quick email (email@example.com) and I will send those out to you soon.
Thanks so much for your patience with all of this. Our goal is to provide solos that are best for our students and that can last many years to come.
