(Full Band) Doane University Honor Band info is now available. One web link is for general information: www.doane.edu/ffw-students and one web link is for audition materials: www.doane.edu/ffw-student-application . There are two paths to take for this group: auditioned and non-auditioned. If you audition, you are guaranteed a spot in 1 of the 3 bands. If you don’t audition, you are not guaranteed a spot.

(Full Band) Away Game Rosters: We have 3 “away” games at Seacrest this year. This means we show up in Polos and jeans, sit on the other (East) stands and play Pep tunes but do not march at halftime. We have split the band into 3 evenly numbered pep bands. Our primary goals were 1) disperse leadership / seniors evenly and 2) keep siblings in the same band for ease of transportation for families. Each student will perform at 1 of the 3 games. Exceptions: Color Guard and all Frontline are excused from Away games. Upperclassmen drumline will play at all 3. 9th Grade Drumline will choose at least 1 to attend.

(Full Band) The October 5th Football Game will be “Band Appreciation Night”. It will be full of Spartan band members: 9th grade will perform at Pre-game, Alumni will sit in the stands with us, 8th graders will also sit in with us, as well as honoring our Band Seniors at halftime. Stay tuned for more details.

(10-12 Band) Senior soloist auditions happen on September 12. See the flyer in the hallway or Mr. Whitman for more details.
