Here's a quick summary of what is happening in our band world at this moment:

1) TONIGHT!  Please attend our Winter Chamber Concert beginning at 7:00pm!  You will be amazed and inspired by the quality of musicians in our band program - from flute ensembles to jazz combos!  The kids are genuinely excited to perform in these smaller ensembles and you'll really enjoy the variety of music.  Plus, it's free and there is food afterwards:)  Concert Band kids get extra credit for attending!

2) WINTERGUARD performance at Apex Friendship H.S. this Saturday 2/23 at 2:20pm.  They'll have their new uniforms and new silks and look awesome!  Please consider attending!

3) The LONDON SURVEY has been sent to all via email.  This is very important as it establishes our "base" population of participants.  Included is my overview letter as well as a sample tour package.  I am truly excited that we are considering embarking on this journey, and I truly believe that it is the right thing to do for our incredible band program.  Please consider making the investment in your child(ren) to give them this life-changing positive experience.

4) I have given all of our freshmen, sophomores, and juniors COURSE RECOMMENDATIONS for our bands for next year.  I realize that they will be signing up for classes soon.  I have also emailed some strategies on how to fit band into your schedule and still look impressive to colleges.  If you did not get this, contact me and I will email it directly to you.  It is really COOL!

5) Our FESTIVAL CONCERT I is next Thursday, Feb. 28th at 7:00pm featuring our Concert Band and our Jazz Ensemble.  You'll be  impressed on the growth of our young Concert Band and the wonderful jazz sonorities of our Jazz Ensemble... and it's FREE and refreshments are served afterwards:)

Thank you for all your support!
