Band Bulletin #10: 10/20-10/26

THANK YOU for a great day Friday with our Fox 8 Morning Show performance and hosting our 8th Grade Band. The 8th graders had a great time and we are very much looking forward to having them in the Marching Bees next year. Videos from our Fox 8 appearance can be viewed HERE.

This week we have several deadlines as we go full speed ahead on the Senior Show. We have very limited time to finish preparing Senior Show, so we need to have very focused and productive rehearsals. Our football team continues to do well, so it is very likely we will have a playoff game on Friday November 8th OR Saturday November 9th. This would be an evening game with the location TBD. Keep these dates open as attendance will be required.

SOUNDS OF THE STADIUM CONCERT

Our annual Sounds of the Stadium Concert will be held on Wednesday, October 30th at 7:00pm. This concert is FREE and open to the public, and will feature music from the entire 2019 season. Please note that recordings of this concert will not be for sale. Due to copyright and licensing, the company that used to record the concert no longer produces DVDs. However, Jeff Mihalich will be recording the concert to post on YouTube.

Students should plan ahead to have the following music in their flip folders for rehearsals next week:

  • Pregame
  • Salute to America’s Finest
  • Stand Tunes
  • Senior Show
  • Disney Show
  • Woodstock Show

We understand that it is required for students to have passed memorization checks, but we need all students to have the music in rehearsal regardless. Additional details about the concert will be included in next week’s bulletin.
