Updated: All-West Auditions – 2018

Good day Spartan Band members and Band Booster members
Please see the following important note regarding weather impact for the All-West auditions.
Please note that All-West auditions will take place regardless of the weather.  We are potentially expected to get winter weather beginning Thursdaynight.  Please use your own judgment in regards to whether the roads are safe or not.
Unfortunately, WTBSOA will not be able to reschedule the auditions. We have also posted their announcement below regarding the weather:
Inclement weather plan (1/9/2018)

WTSBOA Directors,

Regardless of weather conditions, the All West Honor Band auditions will still take place this Saturday at Northside High School in Jackson. There is simply no way to reschedule the audition date.

Please communicate to your students that we understand the challenging and potentially dangerous situation and leave the final decision-making to the parent.  Parents will need to determine the best action, if any, concerning their student. We also advise students to take their instruments home on Thursday just in case schools are closed on Friday.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.  Though we apologize for the situation, it is in fact outside our control, and all we can do is follow protocol and hope for a safe weekend.

WTSBOA Executive Board
