GSMST 2017-2018 Registration Information - July 27, 2017 - 3-8pm - West Wing



To all students (and their parents) participating in BAND, ORCHESTRA, or CHORUS:

On Thursday July 27th, please come at your convenience between the hours of 3-8pmfor the GSMST Music Boosters BAND, ORCHESTRA, and CHORUS registration at GSMST in the West Wing. Park in the back GSMST parking lot and enter at the student drop off entrance used during STEM week. Signs will be posted and volunteers will greet and direct you upon entering the building.

Registration should take anywhere from 30-45 minutes (sometimes less if you're fast with a computer!) to complete!

At registration you will:

- Enter all personal and emergency contact/medical information into our online database allowing us to fully communicate with our Music Booster families

- Submit the $100 booster fee (covers formal uniform, awards, clinicians, and MUCH, MUCH, MORE!), $20 casual uniform fee, and *optional* $3 instrument locker fee

- Submit the annual $60 GCPS instrument rental fee via My Payments Plus. This is ONLY for students using a school-owned instrument (BAND: larger instruments; ORCHESTRA: cello & bass) 

- "Give 'Em 2!" We are asking EVERY parent to volunteer a mere 2 HOURS of their time to help their student's musical endeavors. Sign-up is quick and easy at registration.

While we understand summer vacation plans may still be happening, it is vital to get our students off to a good start in their school year by handling these registration items early. Please make every effort to attend!!

GSMST 2017 Audition Information

RISING 9TH GRADERS wishing to audition should sign up here:




Below are the audition requirements for Symphonic, Philharmonic, and Honor Orchestra auditions for ALL STUDENTS (Rising 9th and returning GSMST students) for the 2017-2018 school year. Rising 9th grade students who choose not to audition will be placed in Concert Orchestra. Auditioning for an ensemble does not guarantee placement within that ensemble, and students should choose the audition best suited to their ability. 



2017-2018 Audition Results

Below are the audition results for 2017-18. Thank you to everyone who auditioned. Remember, if you are unhappy with your audition results the best thing to do is KEEP TRYING! Don't let one bad audition get you down. No requests to re-audition will be granted.

The ensemble selection was based on a number of factors (e.g. ensemble balance, scheduling concerns, etc), not just the simple score. Dr. Richardson reserves the right throughout the school year to move students between ensembles as needed or it if becomes clear through student performance the audition result was incorrect.

Audition results are listed by ensemble, alphabetically by last name. If your name was inadvertently left off any of the lists, please contact Dr. Richardson immediately.
