CTJ Student Leadership

We are very proud of all who auditioned, and feel that the band is heading in a very positive direction for the future. We had more than 70 individuals audition for positions. With larger sections anticipated for 2016-17, the CTJ Band has expanded its student leadership to accommodate and ensure we are able to split up larger sections into smaller focus groups for better teaching and mentorship.

We take detailed notes on each candidate, compile scores and rankings, and spend a great deal of time before and after the auditions evaluating written materials, essays, and discussing the process.

THANK YOU to the students for their preparations for this process. We realize not all can have a title, but you are all leaders for taking the step to audition, prepare, and show such a care for the program and one another.
