Hey Band – First of all, your performance last evening was spectacular! The crowd reaction spoke for itself and I couldn’t be more proud of everyone. However, we can all agree that last evening was incredibly late – something I would have never predicted. The Millersville parade takes about half the amount of time to complete and the lack of prior PMMU participation at New Holland gave us no warning to the extreme slow pace or reference for time. Because of the late evening, we will end rehearsal tonight at 8:00pm instead of 9:00pm.
PMMU was also given last-minute notification yesterday that we need to perform pre-game and Cedar Crest will perform post-game (homecoming). Because of this change made by Cedar Crest, we will probably arrive back to PM around 11:00pm tomorrow. To accommodate another late night, report time for Saturday’s rehearsal will be 10:00am instead of 9:00am.
Due to a last-minute notification, PMMU will be performing PRE-GAME at Cedar Crest. Bus departure time will be 4:30pm sharp!
This will be the first time in DECADES that PMMU will be performing in the New Holland Parade. I mapped out the parade route so families know where we will be marching. The band will start and end the parade at the park and as you can see, total distance is 2 miles. We will have plenty of water available during the parade to ensure everyone stays hydrated and safe.
Please see the game day notes as we travel to Cedar Crest on Friday!
It’s MIDDLE SCHOOL BAND NIGHT! Manor and Marticville band students will be joining PMMU to perform the Star Spangled Banner and stand tunes for the football game. Please the document for more details.
Please note that the high school will have NO POWER on Saturday, Sept. 28. Mr. Johnson will have no access to the building, so please be responsible and take home all items needed for Saturday’s rehearsal AT MANOR MS and competition at Warwick HS.
Please note that PMMU will be meeting at MANOR MIDDLE school on September 28 for the competition rehearsal, meal, and preparation. We will also depart from Manor for the competition. The high school will be without power on this day for construction work, so an alternate rehearsal site is needed.
Please see below for Friday’s football game information. We will be HOME vs. Wilson this week. Be GREAT this week!
Please see the Game Day document for information on the AWAY football game @ Manheim Twp. Have a GREAT week!
Please see the show day document for notes and details regarding our first competition. Performance time is 8:30pm!
