Dear Band Parents, Friends, Alumni, and Students,
First, I can’t tell you just how proud I am of my students who earned spots in this year’s All-State Ensembles! To earn a spot in All-State, students have to go through a rigorous audition process. Congratulations to Sarah Banker, who came out first flute and will be playing principal flute in the All-State Orchestra, Dane Harter, who earned first bass in the All-State Jazz Ensemble, and Nathan Zeringue, who earned a spot as the second trombone in the All-State Jazz Ensemble. They will be performing at the LMEA state conference during the Thanksgiving break.
Now, for the more. Here is this Saturday’s itinerary:
- We will meet at the band room for 11 AM, where you will be fed. Bring $3 for pizza.
- Busses will leave for Dutchtown High School at 11:30.
- We warmup at 12:40.
- Performance time is 1:20.
- The awards ceremony begins at 5:20. We should be finished and boarding busses for our return trip to school somewhere around 6 PM.
I hope to see many parents, friends, and alumni at this marching festival. Please cheer loudly!!
