All-District Band

The All-District Band (ADB) is comprised of 6th and 7th grade students from Robbinsdale Area Schools including Sandburg, Fair, Robbinsdale and Plymouth Middle Schools. ADB is currently under the direction of Todd Burkholder and Caryn Cummings.

Rehearsal and Performance Schedule
Rehearsals for the ADB are on Tuesdays after school at Robbinsdale Middle School band room from 3:30-4:25 beginning at the end of September. Students from SMS, PMS and FAIR ride a transfer bus after school to RMS. Traditionally, the All-District Band performs a fall concert, a December holiday concert at the Mall of America Rotunda, a spring tour to a high school and Bethel University and a spring Showcase Concert with the middle school solo & ensemble Best-in-Site students. ADB ends at the end of March.

Auditions
Auditions for ADB are held every spring through an on-line audition submitted to the directors. Students will receive information and audition materials from the ADB directors, middle school or elementary school band directors in April.

The benefits of ADB
Playing band literature with the best students from all four middle schools builds your skills as a musician, creates friendships that last a lifetime and develops leaders for our high school band programs. Many of the best high school musicians were once members of the Robbinsdale All-District Band.
