All Shore Symphonic Band
Please read the below UPDATED Mitigation Plan.
This plan has been updated on 3/4/2022
Welcome to the 2022 ASBDA Symphonic Band Audition
Please take a few minutes and view the above introductory video, created by ASBDA president, Mr. Orecchio, before traveling to the main Symphonic Band webpage. There are a few items that have had to be adjusted due to the current climate and we would like you to be as informed as possible before starting the audition process.
Due to the current pandemic, the All Shore Band Directors Association has instituted the COVID Mitigation Plan listed below. This plan follows the guidelines of ArtsEd NJ (https://www.artsednj.org/covid19/) which "has been developed based on the policies, guidance, research and recommendations available as of this date."
As the pandemic continues to evolve, the All Shore Band Directors Association will continue to comply with state and district regulations and recommendations.
Personal Protective Equipment
Facemasks are optional for all participants. If a student chooses to wear one, he or she may.
Bell covers are optional. If a student chooses to utilize one, he or she may.
While bell covers and face masks are optional, please make sure students have access to these items so that if they do become required once again, students will have them.
Concerts and Tickets
At this point, there are no restrictions on ticketing.
In keeping with our attendance policy, any student missing multiple rehearsals, the first rehearsal, or a dress rehearsal, will be excused from the group and not permitted to audition for any All Shore ensemble for twelve months.
If at any point following auditions, a student is told he or she must quarantine from school or tests positive for COVID, and misses multiple rehearsals, his or her All Shore experience will end. However, in this situation a student will be eligible to audition for ensembles in the next year.
If at any point from the audition day until ten days after the concert, a student tests positive for COVID-19, he or she, and his or her director, MUST inform the All Shore Band Directors Association via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). If the ASBDA is not notified, that student may lose the ability to audition for a period of twelve months.
