District 10 Instrumental bylaws

ATTENTION DIRECTORS/STUDENTS:  There are several IMPORTANT things of which you need to be aware regarding the PMEA District 10 December Instrumental Auditions Solo List as follows:

1.  We have begun working on a NEW ROTATION of solos. This is ESPECIALLY true for string players.  It has taken A LOT of time to confirm the availability of these solos.  THANK YOU for being patient to insure December auditions run smoothly.

2.  Be aware - THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE editions of the solos for December auditions WILL BE THE ONES LISTED ON THE REPERTOIRE SHEET itself!  String players, flute players, French Horn players, and Battery percussionists need to
pay careful attention that they are using the CORRECT EDITION of the required solo.
3.  If you are in doubt that you have the proper edition of a solo - LOSERS MUSIC has confirmed that these ARE ALL AVAILABLE.  If you have difficulty securing the proper edition, please contact Losers Music.
