Chair Challenge Form
Sometimes students play much better or worse during an audition than they might normally play. Or perhaps a student might progress more or less quickly during the year than other students. If a student believes that chair placement from the audition does not accurately reflect his/her current ability, a chair challenge may be requested.

  • A chair challenge may not be requested immediately after auditions in the fall.
  • A student may only challenge the student one chair above their current chair in the same band.
  • Scheduling of a challenge is subject to approval of the director of the performing ensemble.
  • A challenge that results in changing chairs may not realize that change until after the next scheduled performance.
