I'd first like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone for a very successful Fall Fundraiser for the bands. We had the final count settled this week and thanks to you we were able to raise over $4500 for the middle school band program. Thank you!
After today each of the bands have their Winter Concert music in their possession. Each band has five pieces that we will be working on between now and December 10th. Students should be practicing this music at home regularly to ensure that we are making adequate progress in our rehearsals. We look forward to sharing these pieces with you at the concert!
Please be sure that your student has the accessories they need to keep their instruments in good working order. Trumpet/Cornet/Horn/Baritone/Tuba players must have valve oil and tuning slide grease. Trombone players need slide oil or slide cream (slide cream preferred) and tuning slide grease. All brass players should have a mouthpiece brush and a snake brush for cleaning the instrument. Woodwind players must have 3-4 good, playable reeds at all times and a swab to absorb moisture. All of these accessories are available for purchase from the band directors. Any items not in stock can be ordered and delivered to school on Tuesdays. We want to be sure that everyone's instrument is working properly.
