Band Bulletin #12: 11/3-11/9

THANK YOU to everyone who attended the Sounds of the Stadium Concert and participated in Trunk or Treat! We were very proud with how MUSICAL our students played at the concert. The band sound has come a long way over the past year and we are looking forward to further development during concert season. THANK YOU to Jeff Mihalich for recording the concert!

On Monday we will begin our concert season schedule, but will reassume our marching season schedule on Fridays for as long as the football team is in playoffs. More details below!

PLAYOFF GAMES

Our Bees are in the playoffs! We will be playing Benedictine High School at Bedford High School on Friday, November 8th at 7pm. This is a REQUIRED performance for all students. If the team wins we will have another game on Friday, November 15th. This would be an away game since round two of playoff games are held at neutral sites. This again would be a REQUIRED performance. Please plan accordingly!
