We currently have received no auditions for the All-State Jazz Band Bass Trombone seat. Consequently we will be extending the audition deadline for this seat until Tuesday, September 20, at Midnight. Please encourage your students to audition and take advantage of this awesome new experience! When you download the audition sheet for the Bass Trombone, it is incorrectly titled, "Lead Trombone." It is the correct music.
