Priority for AMIS Strings, Band and Choir will go first to students in grades 7 and 8, but grade 6 students are welcome to audition and may be chosen in “exceptional circumstances” (AMIS Handbook). ” Students who audition for AMIS festivals must be in good standing with the music department of the school they attend. Where possible, they should be members of the relevant performing ensembles. “(AMIS Handbook)
