All participants are required to attend all rehearsals and the performance for the 58th Annual All-State Festival weekend (March 9, 10, and 11, 2018). Students must verify their availability.  We ask that students not audition if they cannot make a commitment to attend the entire All-State Festival weekend.

Once members are selected there will be a $140.00 registration fee assessed per All-State Band member to cover meals, music, guest conductors, concert venue, etc.  There will also be a housing fee of $55.00 to cover two nights of lodging and on-site transportation.

Total fee = $195.00 per student.
