    ·        If you aren’t able to come to any sessions, but still want to be a part of honors ensembles, you must audition in the fall for Mrs. Thompson

    ·        If you are using a school instrument, you must attend at least 2 summer sessions.  If you cannot, you must turn in your instrument over the summer.  (It will be waiting for you in the fall!)
