Dear Spectrum Music Families,
It is Parade week! For new families to the program, a few times a year, the Spectrum Music Department shifts gears and places their focus and energy on forming the Spectrum Community School Marching Band. As mentioned in the last few emails (and calendar) the 39th Annual Peninsula-Coop Santa Light Parade is fast approaching. Parades are a part of our Performance-based program and every member of the music program is an important piece to our ensemble.
We are very excited to be able to return to this parade after a year-long hiatus... students have been sharing their decorating ideas for their instruments i.e. X-mas tree out of a saxophone bell, garland , reindeer ears, lights lights lights lights and thistle. The Drumline will have light up drum sticks and the coveted Turkey Hat will once again, be worn and adorned by the Bass Drum player... (a yearly tradition). All in all, this is a great opportunity to serve our community and have fun whilst doing it.
This past friday, we hit the field for the first time (in what felt like ages), and were cheered on by our neighbouring school, honked via cars passing by and those walking past the school (Check it out via our instagram and facebook page.) With one week remaining, the best support we could receive is making sure that every member of our program is up and in the band room 7:30 sharp Monday, Wednesday, Friday this week. Many moving parts (Colour Guard, Marching Band, Advanced Dancers. Thank you!
Spectrum Band Garment bags with uniforms and Shoes are available to take home everyday this week. I have enclosed our Marching Band Information sheet for your review.
