Band Bulletin #8: 9/30-10/6

We hope everyone had a fun and safe Homecoming weekend! All instrument decorations were to be removed before students left on Friday. The band room will be open before school Monday and throughout the morning to remove any remaining decorations before 6th period rehearsal. Now it’s on to October with only 5 performances left. Let’s finish the season strong!

ATTENTION MARCHING BAND SENIORS!

MUSIC WING/PRACTICE ROOM HOURS

We understand that the Music wing becomes a second home to many of our students. Much like our personal homes, we must make sure the Music wing is secure. The Rehearsal Rooms, Theory Room, Practice Rooms, and Storage Rooms will be locked at 3:10pm and will reopen 30 minutes prior to an evening rehearsal or before school each morning. Practice rooms are available for student use when a director is available to supervise. Students are only permitted to be in the rehearsal/practice/storage rooms when a director or designated private lesson teacher is present, and are not permitted to prop open doors at any time. Practice rooms will still be accessible for Private Lessons. This is a Music Department initiative to make sure the Music wing is secure for students and equipment. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

COMMUNITY BAND

The Brecksville-Broadview Heights Community Band is in need of additional clarinet, trombone, and percussion members. Rehearsals occur the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month from 7:30pm-9:30pm at BBHMS. Please contact director Patricia Nemitz at bbhcommband@gmail.com for more information.

CHAIR PLACEMENT MUSIC

Chair placement audition music will be released this Friday. Chair placement auditions determine seating within your assigned concert band. Students may also take advantage of this opportunity to advance into open spots in Concert Winds and Wind Ensemble. Auditions will be due on Friday, October 19th — More info to come!
