High School All District Jazz Audition Information Letter

September 17, 2019             (Click here for the link to the original google document)

Band Director Colleagues,

Enclosed is the edited list of the All-State Band audition material that will be used for the East Central District High School Jazz Band auditions. This is based on SET 4 that can be found on the MOAJE Website.  If you do not have the All-State Jazz Band audition lists you can get them online at www.moaje.org.   I highly suggest having your students play with the etude tracks before the auditions. 

The auditions will be held at Festus High School on Tuesday, November 5, beginning at 4:30pm. The audition fee is $10.00 per student.  Directors must register their students online via the EC7 website form.  Directors will be required to pay for all registered auditions.  Registration will begin between 3:45 and 4:00pm.  

If a student auditions on more than one instrument, they must pay and register for each audition separately. The audition fee must be paid at the time of the auditions in the exact amount of your audition fees. Take the enclosed invoice to your accounting office and have them pay only the invoice amount. Please use the following address on the purchase order:
