Brass Sectionals Monday 5:15-6:15
Tuesday Practice 6-8 pm (we'll be starting on Visuals, but make sure you still have your charts on you for cleaning individual sets and fixing holes).
Thursday: Woodwind Sectionals 6-7 pm
Friday: Percussion Sectional 7-8 pm
For Band pictures, we will be doing them on the September 23rd Band Practice. I'll be sending home picture forms on Tuesday. You don't have to purchase a package but I do want everyone in the picture so we need everyone at practice (if you have sports practices, please let your coach know so you can be in attendance). The pictures will take approx. the 1st hour of practice with a "dress rehearsal" practice right after (we are going to stay in our uniforms for the rest of practice since you'll be wearing them anyways).
Senior Band parents, we'll be doing the Senior Parents Night the last home Game on October 17th before the game. Make sure you can be in attendance as we honor both you and your Senior Band member and their last home game performance.
Reminder, the Alma Marching Competition is October 4th. I can possibly use two more chaperones to help and if you are wanting to come and at least support the band and watch, email me because I will be receiving some free stand passes for parents.
I don't have an exact performance time yet but will post as soon I have the schedule. Plan on leaving at 8 am and we'll be back approximately 4 pm (depending on how many bands are there, how long we stop for dinner, and even the weather... pray for sunshine!)
Great job at the game on Friday! You guys rocked it and I'm so proud :) Let's keep improving the show and our sound even more and show the Alma judges what a Tawas Marching Band really sounds like!
One last announcement:
All Star Band Audition Registrations are due Sept. 22nd. I'll be passing out forms tomorrow during class to turn in directly to me. Here's the ALL STATE BAND INFORMATION packet sent out by the MSBOA. Feel free to email me if you have questions. All State Band info is open to 7th-12th grade students.
Okay, that's all for now! Have a great Sunday and I'll see you all tomorrow!
