Holiday Concert – Dec. 18 7:00pm

Just a few reminders for next week’s concert:

  • Student arrival time is 6:15pm
  • Report to the band room 
  • Attire – All black (dress pants, dress shirt, tie, dresses, skirts, shoes) ~ accents of red and green are welcome!
  • Students are expected to remain until the end of the concert, regardless of their performance time

The music department will perform a modified concert for the high school student body in the morning on Friday, Dec. 21 (early dismissal day). Please be prepared with instruments and music next Friday!

Twas the Day Before Champs…

  1. Reminder for today – rehearsal is 2-5pm. With the impending rain, both gyms are reserved for today’s rehearsal. 
  2. ARRIVAL TIME SATURDAY IS NOW 7:15am. We need to avoid some serious Girls On The Run traffic tomorrow, and a later arrival will create huge traffic headaches. We will use the time for a quick run of the show before departure to Hershey.

Championship Week Memo

As we enter our final week of rehearsals leading up to championships there is still so much we need to accomplish! We will start rehearsal at 6pm this week, and being punctual to everything will help us achieve being the best group we can be in this final push.
What is the band member’s role in this process? You should strive at all remaining rehearsals to “Be Your Best” of course, but what does this mean?  Here are a few ideas:
Be prepared— The will to succeed is important, but what’s more important is the will to prepare! Within the available time, come to each rehearsal improved. Please focus your practice time on your most challenging parts of the show. 
Be aware of your performance and everything around you while at rehearsal—visually and musically.
– Try to improve one thing in every segment. 
We have an opportunity this weekend to do some pretty incredible things, but we need everyone moving full steam ahead for this to happen!
