Show Choir Band

Description: Show choir band accompanies both Sound Dimension and Touch of Class in all of there show choir performances. Joplin High School's show choir band is consistently ranked among the best bands in the southwest region of Missouri and demands a high level of musicianship and commitment to excellence.

Rehearsals: This ensemble rehearses Monday and Tuesday nights 6:30-8:30. There may be some additional rehearsals throughout the week based on director discretion and student availability. 

Auditions: Auditions will be held in the choir room on Tuesday, August 30th at 4:00. At the audition I will have you each play through the exercises outlined below (One at a time wait in the hall until you are called in). During this portion of the audition I will be listening for technical accuracy (intonation, rhythmic, etc.) and musicality. Following this, we will play through the excerpts as an ensemble. During this portion of the audition I will be listening for your ability to successfully play as part of a section.
