Thanks for a good first week. Here's what's on the go for this week:
1.) Band Classes
Monday – Band 9 (First day with instruments!)
Tuesday – Band 10, 11/12
Wenesday – Band 9
Thursday– Band 10, 11/12
Friday – Band 9
2.) Morning Concert Band Rehearsals / Jazz Bands / Pit Orchestra
Senior Concert Band will start on Thursday morning and Jr. Concert Band will start on Friday morning. Both rehearsals start promptly as 7:30am. :) We will rehearse for about 30 minutes and then we will have our annual Band Breakfasts – thanks to the Spectrum Culinary Arts Program for providing a PANCAKE BREAKFAST for our two concert bands!
Junior Jazz Band will begin rehearsing on Wednesday at Lunch and Sr. Jazz Band will begin rehearsing on Thursday at Lunch.
All regular concert band and jazz band rehearsals will be running in the following week once our start up is complete.
There will be a meeting for any students interested in Pit Orchestra for this year's senior musical "In The Heights" on Monday at Lunch in the Band Room. We will begin rehearsing at the end of September as music has not arrived from NYC yet. The music is very exciting! A combination of rock, jazz, latin, pop, and rap!
3.) Fall Forms
Fall Start Up forms are due back on Monday by 3pm. Your assistance in returning these ASAP is greatly appreciated – lots of kids and lots of information to process! :) . Please make sure that you post-date the DAMAGE DEPOSIT Uniform Cheque (cheque #1) only. I will be returning cheques tomorrow to some students as some of the dates are wrong.
