Illinois FFA State Band Application 2019
Band Director: Christopher Mitchell
Email: cmitchell@blueridge18.org

Audition tapes are not required for State applications.

Commitment if you are accepted as a member of the Illinois FFA Band:
1) The 2019 Illinois FFA Convention will be held in the Bank of Springfield Center, Springfield, Illinois -- June 11-13th, 2019.
2) All band members must plan to be present not later than 10:00a.m. on Tuesday, June 11, 2019. You are expected to attend all rehearsals and performances on time.
3) Please DO NOT apply for membership in Chorus AND Band. Apply for only one.
4). You will not be able to play in the band and take part in other convention activities which would prevent you from attending rehearsals. Activities such as chorus, official delegate work, courtesy or usher corps, etc. will conflict with scheduled activities.
5) If you complete an application, be sure you will be able to attend if selected and make every effort to fulfill your commitment. Failing to show up deprives other students from playing in the Band.
6) If you are selected, you will need to bring your own white shirts/blouses, FFA tie/scarf, and FFA jacket, as all performances are in Official Dress.
7) All students applying for National Band must serve in the Illinois FFA Convention Band.
8) The deadline date for band entries is April 15th, 2019. The band will be formed before May 1, 2019 and you will be notified shortly thereafter if you are accepted. Audition tapes are not required for a State Band application, but will be required if you are selected as a National FFA Band candidate.
9) We will accept more than one application from Chapters.

In the past, the band has made a very good impression. This year, we would like a bigger and better band than ever before. We always need oboes, flutes, and B-flat clarinets. Information as to where we will rehearse will be included with acceptance letters.

Incomplete applications will not be accepted. This includes the endorsements from your band director, advisor, etc.
