The purpose of this post is to provide information about our annual Fall Band Concert next week, as well as other upcoming events. 

Featuring the Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble
Tuesday, November 5, 2019

6:15pm            Report: SB in band room; WE in chorus room
7:00pm            Concert begins
                                Symphonic Band
                                Tri-M Induction (during intermission)
                                Wind Ensemble
8:45pm             Concert concludes; reception provided by boosters

Both the Symphonic Band & Wind Ensemble will be wearing formal attire: Men will wear the tux shirt, tie, and cummerbund with black pants, socks, and dress shoes; Ladies will wear the black dress with black shoes. Wind Ensemble men will also wear the black jackets (provided by school). 

Concert Band students are highly encouraged to attend this performance as most of these students will be in the Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble in future years.  It is important to learn and be inspired by these upperclassmen.  All the Concert Band students will receive “extra credit” for attending!
Athens Drive H.S. established a Chapter of the Tri-M Music National Honor Society a few years ago and we are delighted that over 40 of our students are active participants.  These students - in band, chorus and orchestra - have distinguished themselves by their high academic achievement and long-time service to our Athens Drive Music Programs.

If you are interested in sponsoring a piece of music on the program, please talk with your son/daughter about which piece you would like to sponsor.  The average cost of Symphonic Band music is $75; Wind Ensemble music is $100.  Just email me if you are interested in this TAX DEDUCTIBLE way to contribute to the band and provide a lasting legacy for your child.  If I know in time, I’ll add your name to our program.  Of course, you can also sponsor a work after the concert.  Sponsor names are printed on the archive parts that remain in our library.
It’s going to be another great night for Athens Drive!  I look forward to seeing you Tuesday evening!
