Sorry for not emailing you sooner about what’s happening this week… Just had to make sure that I had to green light to run concerts etc. with the teacher job action that is happening. Good to go! :)
Here’s what we have for the remainder of the week.
1.) Morning Band
Thursday – JR. JAZZ BAND (NOT Marching Band as I had originally planned).
Jr. Jazz needs one final rehearsal to prep for New Orleans Night on Friday. :)
Friday – JR. CONCERT BAND REHEARSAL FOR STUDENTS GOING TO NATIONALS. If your student is NOT going on the MusicFest trip they do not need to attend.
2.) Lunch Band
Thursday – SR. JAZZ BAND
Friday – COMBO REHEARSAL
3.) New Orleans Night
Please read the running order for more information about this event.
We hope to see you there! Admission is $10 at the door for students and adults. Price of admission includes your choice of delectable desserts from our Culinary Arts program (Crème Brûlée, Key Lime tart with crème fresh and blackberries, Dark chocolate Frangelico cheesecake PLUS Level Ground Coffee and Silk Road Tea) as well as music from our junior and senior jazz bands and our newly formed jazz combo.
The evening begins at 7:00pm in the Old Gym for audience members. Grand prizes will be announced at the end of the night.
Students who are not in jazz band have now been organized into shifts. Please read the running order for call times for these shifts. The uniform for students working the “service shifts” is black bottoms (pants, dress, skirt and shoes) and white top.
Thank you for taking part in this – this fundraiser helps to purchase much-needed sheet music, chairs, music stands, instruments, uniforms, and equipment not covered by the school district! Please encourage friends to come to this event. I’m very proud of my students and the hard work that they have put into preparing for this. :)
4.) New Orleans Raffle Tickets
Tickets are now overdue. There are a number of students who have not returned tickets yet. Please return ALL sold and unsold tickets first thing tomorrow!
5.) Hanging Basket Pick-Up
Hanging basket orders will be ready for pick-up at the New Orleans evening. Congratulations, again, to Ethan Sawyer (Grade 10) who sold $800 worth of hanging baskets this year!
Thanks for your support! Hope to see you on Friday night!
A Touch of New Orleans Jazz Night is Friday April 20th starting at 7pm in the Spectrum Community School Gym. Please come see how this venue is transformed into a Jazz Club with delectable desserts, coffee, tea and juice served during the amazing show. Tickets are $10 and will be available for sale starting this Friday through the band students, at the school, or at the door. Get them early as seating is limited.
Students also have raffle tickets for sale $2 each, or you can purchase a book for $20 (each student is asked to please try and sell 2 books). We have great prizes available, including first prize $500 - Date Night Package with a nights accommodation at the Chateau Victoria, restaurant gift certificates, admission to events around town and much more, second prize $250 - grocery store gift cards, and third prize a $150 - Recreation Package with rounds of golf, rec passes, massage etc. Along with these we have several other prizes including a Whale Watching Tour for two, additional hotel stay, Co-op gift basket etc etc. There are also prizes for the students who sell the most tickets - some they are aware of and some that are in the works, so please get out and sell as many as you can.
Thank you in advance for supporting the Spectrum Band Program. All proceeds from this event will go to purchase musical instruments, sheet music and other requirements identified by our Band Director - Mr. Davis and these directly benefit all of our kids.
See you all next Friday, be sure to spread the word and invite your family and friends
