Randolph Center for the Arts, 4915 Garth Road, Huntsville, AL 35802
From I-565, exit on South Memorial Parkway. Take the Drake Avenue exit at Parkway Place Mall and turn left, traveling east, for approximately 2 miles, until you reach the four-way stop at the Garth Road intersection. Turn right, traveling south, for approximately .05 miles. The Randolph School and Center for the Arts will be on your left.
Registration, located in the lobby of the Center for the Arts, will be open from 4:00-4:30 PM, whereupon you will receive a packet of information for the clinic weekend, a nametag which you should wear during your stay on campus, and where you will pay the $40 clinic fee with either cash or check (made payable to UAH Music Department).
On Friday, both lunch and dinner are provided on campus at no additional charge to you. Your Honor Band nametag will serve as your admission to both meals, catered by local restaurants for your safety and convenience. Due to the freedom of Saturday’s clinic schedule, no meals will be provided.
The Concert Performance:
The concert performance will take place at the Randolph Center for the Arts at 2:00 PM on Saturday, November 15, 2014. CD and DVD recordings of the concert will be available from Tim Batt Recordings immediately before and after the concert in the lobby of the Center for the Arts.
Dress for the concert on Saturday is very simple – it is whatever your school band wears for concert performances. For some, this may be band uniforms, for others, tuxedos or concert black or Sunday dress. If more than one person is attending the clinic from your school, please make sure you confer with them about their attire so that there is uniformity from school to school.
Parents are welcome to attend any of the clinic sessions with exception, of course, the auditions and masterclasses.
Clearly, participating students have been specially selected for this clinic. Any last minute no-shows will compromise the integrity of the clinic as well as reflect poorly on you, your band, and your school.
