I want to thank everyone in the program for how you have handled these last few months. The staff has spent hours reviewing the submissions for leadership positions and band placements, and we have been extremely impressed by the work you all have done. All of the leadership applications and audition recordings were very well done, and we were pleasantly surprised with how many audition recordings were simply fantastic. So many of you have taken this time at home to continue to improve on your instrument, and it really showed in the recordings. As is the case with all auditions and placements, some of you will be happy with the results and some of you may be disappointed. The program has grown significantly over the last few years, and that has made all of the sections extremely competitive. Please know that regardless of where you placed, the staff is proud of you all and the work you put into the leadership applications and the band placements.
