CBDA administers Woodwind, Brass and Percussion for the All-State Band and Orchestra Auditions

The California All-State Honor Orchestra takes place during the same weekend as the All-State Honor Bands in Fresno. All Woodwind, brass and percussion students submitting audition CDs will be asked to choose from three options. Option 1: "I am auditioning for either All-State Honor Band or the All-State Honor Orchestra." Option 2: "I am only auditioning for All-State Band." Option 3: "I am only auditioning for All-State Orchestra." Saxophone auditions will be considered for band only because there are no saxophone parts in the Orchestra music this year. All string players audition by going to www.codaorchestras.org and following the instructions on that website.

Parents: Please direct ALL questions to your music director.

Music Directors ONLY! If you experience problems using the online application, please e-mail Trish Adams, CBDA Administrative Assistant.

CBDA would like to thank the following companies for their generous contributions which helped to make possible our online forms.

Forms and applications posted on this site may be in Portable Document Format (PDF). Once downloaded, you will need Adobe Reader to view and print them.
