Thank you to the Jr. Jazz Band for performing at our open house last Tuesday! We received some really nice feedback from parents and grade 8 students that were visiting our school. :) Jr. Jazz also chose to hold an “open rehearsal” allowing our visitors to observe our rehearsal process – thank you for this (It’s not easy to be put on the spot like that).
Thank you to everyone that completed Term 2 requirements! Report cards will be issued on Friday, February 14th at 2:00pm.

2.) Glanford Middle School Visit on Wednesday – SR. JAZZ BAND
Jr. Jazz will NOT be performing on Wednesday morning at Glanford school. Sorry – there were too many conflicts with the Science 10 provincial exam to bring a functioning band.
Thank you to the Sr. Jazz Band for being able to jump in for this gig on short notice. Much appreciated!
All members need to meet at Glanford (4140 Glanford Ave) at 9:30am. Go to the Multipurpose Room near the Glanford Avenue entrance. If you can help with set-up in the gym, please meet me at 9:00am. Thanks!
We perform at 10:00am and will be done by 11:00am.
Pieces TBA. **NO UNIFORMS REQUIRED** … Wear whatever colour of socks you want! Pink… purple… polka-dot… up to you! ... Okay, no polka-dots. :)
2.) Pit Orchestra – Sing Through on Thursday
The Pit Orchestra will be joined by the “Drowsy Chaperone” cast on Thursday for our annual sing-through. Orchestra members need to be in the pit ready to play by 3:15pm. Please be prepared with all mutes, music, pencils etc. and do not be late (exceptions for those writing exams that day).
Enjoy the rest of your week. :)
