Eligiblity

The 2023 Indiana Bandmasters Association All-State Band Festival will be held March 10 - 12 at Purdue University in West Lafayette.  The finale concert will be at the Elliott Hall of Music on Sunday, March 12 at 2:30 PM EDT. Outstanding musicians, who are students of IBA members, in grades 9 -12 are eligible for All-State Band.  The student must be a member in good standing of his/her school’s band program throughout the school year. All participants are required to attend all rehearsals and the performance for the All-State Festival weekend (March 10, 11 and 12, 2022). Students must verify their availability.  We ask that directors confirm that each student applying from your school is available for the entire All-State weekend (March 10 11, 12) before the January auditions.  Students participating are required to attend all events (100% of every rehearsal) during the festival.  Students unable to make that commitment should not apply to audition. The application deadline is December 2. Beginning Saturday, December 3 a $10 late fee will be added to the student $10 application fee. On Saturday, December 10, the late fee will increase to $50.

Director / School Registration Student Application
Audition Requirements

All students auditioning pay a $10.00 entry fee per instrument and are required to play a chromatic scale and 2 etudes for his/her instrument.  The chromatic scales are used to demonstrate the student’s mastery of the full range of the instrument.  The etudes for all instruments are chosen to discriminate between the very finest players in Indiana.  The purpose of these etudes is to 1) delineate between All-State caliber and non-All-State caliber players, 2) to delineate between All-State Honor Band personnel and All-State Band personnel, 3) to rank players within the sections of each band. (Students who double playing flute/piccolo, Bb clarinet/Eb clarinet, Oboe/English horn or trombone/bass trombone pay one audition fee but perform on both instruments.)  Students auditioning may not always be able to play every excerpt perfectly at the tempo indicated.  Each student must also sight-read an excerpt on his/her instrument.  Each percussionist will be required to prepare etudes  on three  instruments: snare drum, keyboard mallets and timpani and sight-read a brief excerpt on one instrument.  The player will select the instrument before being presented the excerpt.  Percussion applicants pay only one audition fee.
