Band Bulletin #5 (9/22-26): HOMECOMING!

WOW – The Marching Bees put on a tremendous show Saturday at the NRHS Festival! By all accounts, it was our strongest overall performance of the RRHOF show yet this season.  You impressed many people, and knocked off many socks… CONGRATULATIONS!  

Remember – we still have much more to come… let’s work together to keep our standards high as the season continues!

Also, a special thank you to our CHAPERONES, who do so much for us… we could not function without you!

Finally, many thanks to everyone for the thoughtful Birthday wishes, cookies, cards, and other items (carrots?!) on Saturday… I continue to feel very fortunate to work with such fine students, parents, and staff.

HOMECOMING WEEK:
____________________________

Le Regiment music checks need to be completed by Friday!  Note – this is not necessarily a “memorization check.” It is more important to us that you can play the music accurately, with your flip folder, than to perform from memory. However, if you prove your memorization, you may march without the flip folder on Friday.
____________________________

TUESDAY, 9/23 – Evening Rehearsal (6pm-9pm)**

**IMPORTANT: Every student must PRINT THE MUSIC for our NEW halftime show, and have it stuffed into your flip folders for rehearsal on Tuesday!

Also, every student should already have LE REGIMENT in the flip folder (if not, please print).

We will march down Rt. 21, to the Old Stadium, and play some pep music during the bonfire.

Students will be released directly from the Old Stadium around 9:00 pm.

FRIDAY, 9/28 – HOMECOMING! (CT 5:30)

  • Pep Rally during school: The DRUMLINE will be performing (Timing TBA)
  • Football vs. North Olmsted (CT 5:30 pm)
  • Instrument Decoration:
    • As a long-standing tradition, students are allowed to decorate their instruments tastefully for this game.
    • Remember, these are decorations, NOT simply random items or pieces of trash.
    • Your instrument MUST PLAY PROPERLY
    • The decorations must be securely fastened to the instrument so that pieces do not fall on the field.
    • Section/squad leaders: help us by modeling what is appropriate, and by checking your squads and sections to make sure these guidelines are adhered to.

All Leadership – please plan to stay after the game to help clean up the music area.
