Happy Friday Eve,
An outstanding performance given by the band last Friday AND Saturday. We were awarded a 2 (Excellent) rating and given the Outstanding Music Award for the competition.
Goings-on for this week:
Band Council Meeting – 7am
Band Rehearsal – 5:55pm to 9pm
NOTE: Orchestra Winds/Percussion will be released early enough to dress/prepare for concert, Mr. Mosier is aware of the conflict and we are working on a plan of action
All students in black marching shoes and navy rehearsal shirt
Morning Sectionals – 6:50am – Flute/Clarinet/Baritone/Trumpet
Drumline Rehearsal – 2:30pm
Early Release Day
Morning Sectionals – 6:50am – Sousaphone/Saxophone/Mellophone
Football Game – call time is 5:30pm
All students with black marching shoes/socks, gloves, and black uniform shirt
We will load the equipment trailers after the game again, please plan accordingly for pick up
Bronco Invitational – All Day – call time at LSW is 9:15am (Race for the Future will be going on, so please be aware of parking/drop off difficulties)
Contrary to years past at this competition, we WILL be bussing to LSN after a short rehearsal at LSW, AND bussing home after the awards
I would like to ask that ALL students stay with us for the duration of the festival, probably about 1.5 hours after the performance, as we will stay in the stadium to observe the last few bands as an educational activity. Students can be picked up at LSN around 5:30pm OR at LSW around 6pm
Here is the itinerary for the day:
A continued reminder that Symphonic/Concert Band Auditions are rapidly approaching (October 28-29) Please be encouraging your son/daughter to be preparing diligently at home.
Have a great weekend!
