Good work on Friday! Our “new” hybrid halftime show was well received by the Lakewood crowd… I received many compliments on your behalf, both for performance and behavior, which is always greatly appreciated.

Let’s stay focused… TWO MORE WEEKS of regular-season football! Remember to keep November 7-8 flexible on your calendars, in case the Bees make the playoffs.

CHAIR PLACEMENT VIDEOSDUE THIS FRIDAY, 10/24

CHAIR PLACEMENT PAGE

Our best advice to you: DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE! Give yourself ample time to practice, and put your best “product” on video. Also, allow extra time in case your technology does not function as expected. PLAN AHEAD!

*REMINDER – as you are recording your videos, each excerpt should be recorded as a separate video file… rather than one continuous video of the full audition.

A great comeback victory on Friday night! Band – congrats on your exciting pregame and halftime performances… our collaboration with Sarah Burgess was truly something unique. While it was unfortunate that a traffic jam kept her from singing with us at halftime, the postgame show was very special, and we were able to collect over $500.00 for CureDuchenne!

All information that you need is found on the CHAIR PLACEMENT PAGE.

A note about PLAYOFFS – If the Bees head to the playoffs, the Marching Bees will be there, as well!
