Band Bulletin #7: 9/29-10/5

It’s hard to believe we have reached the halfway point of marching season! This week we finish our preparations on the Disney Show and premier it at Friday’s game. We hope you are able to attend to watch our magical halftime show!

Speaking of magical, check out this picture from Friday’s game at Hudson!

CHAIR PLACEMENT AUDITIONS

Chair Placement Audition instructions and materials have started to be posted on the Auditions page under the “Students” menu tab. Everything will be posted by Wednesday when we go over submission procedures. Students do have the opportunity to move up in the bands if there are open spots and their schedule permits. All recordings must be submitted with YouTube links this year. Chair Placement Auditions are due Wednesday, October 16th by 11:59pm.

SENIOR SHOW

Senior show music has been posted to the Music & Documents page under the “Students” menu tab. We will start this music next week, so please have it printed and in your flip folders by Monday, October 7th. Seniors have elected not to do Script Bees as part of their Senior Show, so we will be preparing 3 new tunes from past years.

PRIVATE LESSONS

With Chair Placement Audition materials released, some of our students may be considering enrolling in Private Lessons. Students who take Private Lessons advance in the band program at an accelerated pace, have the opportunity to earn honors credit, and make up a majority of our student leaders. We have several teachers that come to BBHHS during the school year and live in our community, but their schedules are becoming full with the increased enrollment in Private Lessons this year. A full list of private teachers we recommend is available HERE. Please contact Mr. Rex with any questions or assistance in finding a teacher.
