Band students auditioned for the West Central Missouri Music Educator's Association All-District Band Saturday, November 7, 2015. The audition process involves students preparing challenging musical etudes and scales prior to audition day. Students compete for a chair in one of two bands, the Honor Band and the Honorable Mention Band. Over 500 students in the West Central district auditioned throughout the day. Ray-Pec had 52 students named as members of the two groups or as alternates (see list below). Both bands will perform January 9, 2016 on the campus of University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. Students who made the top group, the Honor Band, will also be eligible to audition for the Missouri All-State Band on December 5, 2015.
Congratulations to the following All-District Band members:
