Take Note Youth Band

Take Note Band Audition PSA

Teen musicians, ages 13 to 18, who are interested in being part of the Parks and Recreation Department’s award winning Take Note youth band should begin preparing their audition CD or DVD now. To take advantage of this opportunity, musicians must submit a sample of their best work to the Parks and Recreation Department by Friday, Sept. 18 at 4 p.m.

The Take Note band is looking for vocalists, keyboardists, bassists, drummers, percussionists and saxophonists. Interested youth should submit a photo and a DVD or CD with a demonstration of themselves performing on their instrument or demonstrating their singing ability and stage presence. They should also submit a letter explaining how they can add to and benefit from participation in the band. Those chosen from a live audition to be a member of Take Note will be introduced to the concepts needed to perform a variety of styles of music such as pop, rock, jazz and blues in preparation for live performances at major venues throughout the City.

Staff recommends musicians take this opportunity to create a quality audition piece that could potentially allow them to join some of the City’s best young musical talent as they perform year round at various venues and events.

Bring or mail entries to the Parks and Recreation Cultural Programs Section, Attention: TAKE NOTE, Ron Darner Parks and Recreation Headquarters, 5800 Old Highway 90 W., San Antonio, Texas 78227. Hours for dropping off an entry are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. For more information, call 207-3132.

The Take Note youth band was recognized by the National Recreation and Park Association for innovative programming in 2013.
