2nd Trimester Band and Chorus Concert will be on Wednesday, Feb 27 at 7 pm. Dress will be white/black just like how we will be dressed 72 hours later for band festival. I need all students here by 6:40 on Feb 27. Concert will be only approx. 50 minutes in length.
Unfortunately due to many student conflicts, snow days, swim leagues, band concert, spring musical rehearsals, and every other conflict all the other nights of the week that could be dreamed of, our plan to have JAZZ BAND rehearsals on Wednesday nights 6-7:30pm in Jan-March is a fail. So right now, Jazz Band is on hold - most likely until after spring break. It is unfortunate that this is the case but if there are no students available, there's no way for me to rehearse them. Hopefully by April, many of the student conflicts will be resolved and of course the musical, swim season, and other things will be over by then.

Fine job on Monday for the Rotary Club at noon and at the Solstice concert that evening. Great work for a class that only just started on the Monday after Thanksgiving!
Great night of some great talent. That's how you put twenty four different pieces of music ranging from a 160 piece concert band, 60 member choir, a color guard, brass ensemble, jazz ensemble, dance and vocal soloists, and various other musical acts into an hour and 45 minutes! I'm proud of you all.
Dear Band Family:
Recently, a freshmen member of our band family, Abby Zettlemoyer, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. To help the family during this difficult time, the Band Boosters will be taking donations of gift cards. Suggested gift cards include gas and common restaurants to help with travel expenses connected with care, Barnes & Nobles (Abby's a reader), grocery stores, etc. Donations can be made at the Winter Solstice Band Concert on December 17. There will be a donation bucket set up at the Band Boosters table. Any cash received will be converted into gift cards.
We appreciate any donation you would like to make. Most of all, please keep the family and Abby in your prayers.
