BAND BULLETIN #6 (9/29-10/4) – HUDSON BAND FESTIVAL

Thanks to all for an exciting Homecoming, and another fine performance of “Script Bees” on Friday night! As always, the instrument decorations are a fun way to showcase the limitless creativity and spirit of our students… thanks to everyone who stayed to help clean up the music area.

A huge THANK YOU to Kathy Richards and Nancy Randall, as well as all students and parents who volunteered to help with the DRIVE 1 Fundraiser!  The weather was beautiful, and we had a good turnout. MANY THANKS!

Believe it or not, this week marks the beginning of October, and the marching season is already halfway over… but we have many exciting things yet to come.

Once again, we will perform our exciting RRHOF show for a packed house!

Excused Absences – Please note, for excused absences, an additional activity will be required. While the actual performance experience cannot be made up, a large portion of the educational value of Band Festivals also comes from watching other bands. As such, we will ask you to complete an online assignment that involves viewing and analyzing videos of various Halftime shows. Please see Mrs. Astey for details.
