PERCUSSION INFO 
- Equipment may be unloaded at Door #21, which leads directly into the Westmoore Band Room.  The band room will not be used as a holding place or warm up area for percussionists, but just an entry point into the building prior to auditions.  Equipment will need to be moved to the percussion warm up gym. 
-There are 2 sets of Percussion Prelim Rooms.  Each student will play in 3 separate rooms: 1 each for snare, mallet, and timpani.  Students will need to very carefully check that they are moving correctly from room to room. (Ex: Snare A > Mallet A > Timpani A; NOT Snare A > Mallet B > Timpani A)    
- There will be signs clearly marking the rooms.  Outside monitors will be instructed to carefully check that students are auditioning in their correct rooms.
- We anticipate some delays as multiple students from the same school may need to share equipment.  We will handle this as we have done in the past.  Students waiting on another room to finish with equipment will audition as soon as their equipment is available.  Again, outside monitors will be instructed to help manage these instances.
- Percussion Finalists will audition on all 3 instruments in 3 separate rooms using the exact same process as in prelims.
