Mexico’s 43 Missing Students: ¿Quiénes Son?

Audition for Sharing the Stage
Do you know a singer/songwriter and/or musician at our school who deserves a larger audience? Maybe it's you. On Wednesday, November 19, my partners and I will hold auditions at 7 p.m. in the band room for anyone willing to give it a shot. Those selected will need to be available for one group evening rehearsal the week of Dec. 8 and, of course, be able to play the show at the Red Bicycle opening for Brothers From Another on Friday, Dec. 12. Got a job? Let your boss/scheduler know and/or see if someone will take your shift. We would love to hear one or two songs, and are especially interested in originals, though covers are cool, too.
