Free Zoom session to help with District and State Auditions

Palen Music is excited to announce a great opportunity for high school band and orchestra students across Missouri! We are partnering with UMKC’s Conservatory to host a FREE Zoom session for your students on the MBA and MO-ASTA audition packets – July 8th from 1:45-3:00 (3:30 for percussion).

Following a brief welcome/introduction at 1:45, students will be sent to breakout rooms for the instrument they selected on their registration form. In each of those rooms, the teacher will go through the packet, and help the attendees make a plan to prepare now for a successful audition in the fall. Thanks to Dr. Lani Hamilton & Dr. Joe Parisi for their tremendous help in lining up UMKC faculty and friends to present!

Registration closes at 5:00pm on Friday, July 3rd and will be capped at 500 people, so encourage them to sign-up quickly at

Please share the flyer attached via your program/school social media to help spread the word and let us know if you have any questions!

Be well!
