We have been having issues with the band web site in the schools. For that reason and a few others I have decided to revamp the band web site. For the most part you will just see a new look, but you may need to do a couple things:
- If you bookmarked the old site you will want to go bookmark the updated one and delete that old bookmark. The old site was hosted on wordpress.com and when you actually get there the url is no longer uintahband.net The new site is however uintahband.net and is not forwarded.
- If you are a subscriber this should be your last notification from the old site. You will need to subscribe again on the new site.
Now since I am moving to a new system I am finding that I have some bugs to overcome. Please be patient with me as I work through them. I hope to have everything done and working by the time school starts in August.
If you can not find something on the new site you can always go to the old one, but it will not be updated any further after today.
Go shopping here and help the kids earn their MB Fees for 2017.
A fundraiser to help kids pay for Marching Band. Support one of our students by typing there name in as you check out, or just buy for the general fund. All products are sent directly to you and the kids get the profits. Yay for shopping!
Here are the band assignments for the 2017-18 school year.
Congratulations to all for a great audition. It was really hard to place people this year.
It is that time of year again to audition for next year’s ensembles. At least time to start preparing. Please read the audition info sheet and start preparing. I will complete all auditions prior to Spring Break and will announce positions when we return to school.
The jazz audition music can be found here.
It is time to register for Marching Band. If you want to be part of the Uintah Ute Marching Band for the summer and fall 2017 go to the MB page and get registered.
If you are interested in joining the summer parade band or shadow band that information can be found here. Go get signed up for that too.

Got this email last night:
Greetings from the University of Utah Wind Band Program!! This letter is in regard to this year’s 2017 Honors Workshop. We have had an overwhelming response for this year’s workshop with over 250 nominations! Thank YOU as directors for supporting the University of Utah and this year’s workshop. Once again we have decided to form two honor bands to include as many students as possible to join us on campus for this great opportunity. The students in these honor bands will have a short (no pressure) audition and seated in one of the two equally talented ensembles. We are in the process of hiring an out of state clinician to assist with the workshop. Each conductor will conduct 2 or 3 pieces with each ensemble – making it a rewarding musical experience! Please encourage to have 100% attendance from your school! If you have any more students interested, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Please forward or print the following letter and materials to the students. Students are asked to prepare 2 scales of their choice as well as an excerpt from their band music for seating placement auditions.
Students are asked to RSVP by January 17th using the following link:
Thank you again for your support and we look forward to a GREAT musical experience at the University of Utah!
