Audition Results

Good morning!

The links to our audition results are below.  The colorguard roster is set with exception of a few students who are moving in to district and will be sending in video auditions.

If you auditioned on an instrument then your name should be on the Marching Roster and in one of the 3 Concert Band Rosters.  If somehow your name was left off or you have not yet auditioned for whatever reason, please contact Mr. Carr as soon as possible via e-mail at christopher.carr@carrolltoncityschools.net.

We are very excited to be able to offer 3 levels of concert bands next year. This will allow more students a “first” chair experience and create more individual responsibility for all of our students.  Because we have many students who continue to push the envelope working on being competitive not only at CHS but also in our district and state levels all 3 bands will be very good!  I am very excited to see what this year has in store for us!  Onward and upward!

Change of Plans for the Band Banquet

After seeing the awards banquet on stage at the Mabry Arts Center, Mr. Carr thought it would be important in order to present the band awards on stage at Carrollton High School and has decided to host our band banquet in our Cafeteria and the awards ceremony in the Mabry Arts Center.  We sincerely apologize for the change in decision, but believe that it was in the best interest for all involved.
We are very please to announce that we were able to secure another caterer for the event as well.  Carrollton’s Longhorn’s Steakhouse has agreed to cater our dinner for the same cost- $12.00 per person, and dinner will include a 6oz Steak, Baked Potato, and Side Salad as well tea, lemonade, or water, and a dessert!

Please fill out the RSVP form below by Monday afternoon to make your reservations.  You can submit payment Monday – Thursday of next week.  Please send the payment by 3:30pm on Thursday.  Thank you so much for your flexibility and for your continued support of our band program!

If the form doesn’t show up please find it here (http://goo.gl/forms/EhsveDeZVj). or Visit the website at http://www.chstrojanband.com.
