WV All-State Orchestra

All-State students must complete registration, and submit their WVMEA forms and $25 registration fee to Mr. Orban by Friday, January 28.


Our All-State Orchestra students will have the following options for hotels and transportation to Charleston:

1) You can ride to Charleston with your parents and stay in a hotel with your parents for the duration of the conference.  You will be responsible for booking your own room and getting yourself to rehearsals/concerts on time.

2) You can ride to Charleston on a bus with the band students and stay in a room with 2 or 3 other students from our band/orchestra.  The UHS Band Boosters would cover the upfront cost of the rooms and you would just need to pay a fraction of the room cost (~$90 for three days).

Regardless of your choice, your parents will need to drive you home from Charleston after your concert.  Mr. Orban will ask you which option you choose once we get audition results in January.
