2.) Jr. Jazz Band to Glanford Middle School on Wednesday
Mr. House has asked for a band to play at Glanford MS on Wednesday afternoon. Jr. Jazz students will be excused from Period 1&2 classes on Wednesday to do this. The school has booked a bus to take us to the middle school. No uniforms will be needed for this performance and we will return to the school for 3:00pm.
3.) "In The Heights" / Pit Orchestra Rehearsals
We are getting very close to the opening of our senior musical, "In The Heights" and our Pit Orchestra has been working really hard. We have rehearsals on Wednesday and Thursday this week, plus a full day of rehearsal on Friday (9am-4pm with lunch provided). A dress rehearsal will be held on Saturday (10am – 5pm). Tickets for the shows are on sale now and can be purchased by calling the school office (250-479-8271)
4.) UVic Band Festival - Feb 27th
Please add Wednesday February 27th to your schedules. Both concert bands will be participating in the Uvic Concert Band Festival at the University's Farquhar Auditorium. This is an excellent opportunity for students to receive feedback about their playing from adjudicators (before we head to Port Alberni which is a competitive/Provincial festival). We will be performing in the afternoon and will be traveling there and back by bus (with lots of time to spare for musical theatre/orchestra members to prepare for the show that evening). More details to follow.
