Stanton's Wind Band Reading Session Monday, November 17, 2008
This past weekend the Stanton’s Sheet Music and the Capital University annual Concert Band Reading Session took place. Over 100 pieces of new concert bandÂ literature was read live on stage. TheÂ reading clinic featured 3 sessions of the All Ohio High School Reading Band, a directors band, Hilliard Darby H.S. & Hilliard Memorial Middleschool, plus the Capital University SymphonicÂ Winds &Â the Wind Symphony. One of the positive features of the weekend is that all of the studentsÂ that make up the All Ohio Reading Band haveÂ to audition with a Capital University applied faculty member, once the auditions are over, the staffÂ thenÂ assigns the students into theÂ 3 reading bands. This gives students an opportunity to do a formal audition and the Capital University staff a chance to recruit new young music majors. We wish to thank everyone that attended the reading session and encourage those whoÂ have never been to a concert band reading sessionÂ to attends next years event.
