Future 7th Grade Band and Orchestra Students

Hello Parents,


I am looking forward to meeting your wonderful young musicians during the 2017-2018 school year at Wasatch Junior High.  I will be holding auditions for incoming 7th grade students wishing to be in concert band or concert orchestra next year.  Concert Band and Concert Orchestra students typically have 2-3+ years of experience on their instruments with many taking private lessons as well (but not all).  If your student is interested in auditioning, auditions will be held Tuesday April 25-Tuesday May 4th the times listed below.  Signups will be available outside of room 112 at Wasatch or you may email me a requested time.    (


Students should prepare a piece of music that shows their ability and 2 scales of their choice for the audition, there will also be a short sight reading portion.    


Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.  If you are unable to make any of the dates and times below let me know, thanks.

Calling out to past and current Theater students

Attached you will find an invitation to Karen Dodge's retirement celebration. As many of you know, Karen has worked for 20 years at Wasatch Jr. High, and she will be retiring this year. While we know she will leave the community wanting more, she is looking forward to her next big adventure of starting her own children's theatre company. We would love to give her a grand send off! Please share this email with those who have been touched by her amazing talents. Whether a parent volunteer, a former or current student, previous PLT or SBO officers, stage crew, co-worker or audience member- we want her to know what she has meant to this community. So mark your calendars, get out your contact list, and spread the word! (Please see invitation for event details)

If you have any questions, or are interested in donating to the event, please contact myself or Lisa Wood. You can also join the Facebook Group "Wasatch Jr. High Drama Students (Former & Current)."
