Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families. I hope this email finds you well and looking forward to a relaxing long weekend. Here are some bits of information and updates for the band world:
All State Band Auditions
There are several students involved in All-State Band auditions on Saturday, December 6th. If you have one of these students, you will need to transport your son/daughter to/from Columbia, MO. The auditions will take place at Columbia-Hickman High School. There are no scheduled times for these auditions. Mr. Thurmond and Mr. Harrel will be on-site with registration forms. You will need to find us upon arriving at the high school and get your audition number. At this point, students will go to their audition room and sign up for an audition spot (no times). More information (including maps and transportation release) will come home next week.
Winter Concert – December 8th
All bands will be performing at our Winter Concert. Please make sure all uniform parts are purchased and in order before the concert.
Concert #1 will start at 6pm and will include the Percussion Ensemble and Concert Band
Concert #2 will start at 7:30pm and will include the Symphonic Band and Titan Jazz Band
We hope all family and friends can attend this concert at such a wonderful time of year.
Are you going to Washington DC with us?
If so, you need to be at the MANDATORY trip meeting in between the two concerts on December 8th at 7pm in the PAC.
At this meeting you will be given lots of information that will take some immediate action on your part, so don’t miss it.
PLEASE make sure you have caught up on payments by THIS SUNDAY!
Cinderella Pit Orchestra
If your son/daughter made it into the pit orchestra for the winter musical, Cinderella, please print off the attached schedule and get the dates into your calendar now to prevent conflict.
ALL band students will participate in TWO pep band performances this winter. Please add these two dates to your calendar as well.
Friday, January 9th
Tuesday, February 24th
Call times TBD. We will be wearing our blue pep band tee shirts (from the marching season) and our ball caps. Please locate these now.
Again, I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday.
