All-State Bands

Students selected into the two All-State Bands are treated to a guest conductor and prepare a Saturday concert in Athens with band students from all over Georgia.

2017-2018 auditions for District Honor Bands and All-State Bands (1st round) will be combined into one audition on Saturday, December 2 at Dodgen Middle School.
