2016 TMEA All-Area Auditions

19 In CTJ Band Advance to All-Area

Congratulations to all of our band members who auditioned at TMEA Region!! We had 19 students advance to Area contest and move to the next and final round of the TMEA All State Process. 

The 19 who advanced represent two more students than CTJ had last year, and just one below the school record of 20.  Given the demands of this fall (and trip to Grand Nationals), the the competitive nature of our region, we are thrilled with the results from this evening and very proud of all of the students who auditioned tonight.

Seven band members earned chairs in the TMEA Region 12 Orchestra by placing at the top of their room and will perform the weekend of December 9-11. Nine CTJ band members earned first chair in the region/won their room.

Join the CTJ 25-200 Club

The 25/200 Club is an EASY way to financially support the Johnson Band on a monthly basis! Here is how it works: 200 people giving at least $25 a month! That would provide the band $300 per year, per person OR $60,000 per year if 200 people sign up! $60,000 per year will go a LONG WAY in supporting the Johnson Band! EVERY dollar raised goes directly back to the band program!
