Band Bulletin: Mid-Winter Concert & Pancake Breakfast

THIS WEEK: ________________________________________________

MONDAY, 2/27 – W.E. Sectionals

Our last sectional rehearsal — attendance is crucial!

  • 3:00-4:30 — WE Brass
  • 4:30-6:00 — WE Woodwinds



The students have been working hard on this program, and we look forward to sharing the musical progress that we have made since the December performance!

CALL TIME - 6:30

Groups will meet in the following areas:

  • JAZZ ENSEMBLE – Side Stage
  • CONCERT WINDS - Choir Room
  • SYMPH CRIMSON – On Stage
  • SYMPH GOLD – Band Room
  • WIND ENSEMBLE – Theory Room

Mr. Mark Lowe & Mr. David Vitale will be serving as “guest adjudicators” for this concert, providing valuable recorded and written feedback for us.  Mr. Lowe is the former Director of Bands at Kenston HS, and Mr. Vitale is the Director of Bands at North Royalton High School.  If you hear them talking during the performance, it is ok — they are supposed to!  Thanks for your understanding.

Yearbook pictures will be taken from the balcony during the concert, prior to each ensemble’s performance.

PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES are the same evening (4:00-7:00).  Parents, please stop by the HS Cafeteria to speak with Mrs. Astey and I prior to the concert (we will be leaving around 6pm).  We would love to see you!
