SUMMER BULLETIN – 6/9/20

Welcome to a much needed summer break! This will be our final bulletin until after July 4th. If a question comes up between now and the next Band Bulletin, please scroll back through the past few bulletins before contacting directors. Like our students, the directors will be unplugging and recharging our batteries for a few weeks, and we will not be checking e-mail as regularly as during the school year.

We are still looking for additional tubas and flags for the 2020 edition of the Marching Bees. If you know someone that might be interested in joining band and play tuba or join Flagline it’s not too late! Due to offsite learning this Spring, Flagline auditions will be accepted through the end of June. Students interested should contact Ivory Kovach ASAP. Students interested in joining the Marching Bees on tuba or any other instrument should contact Mr. Rex ASAP. Help us recruit to balance out the band and make everyone’s experience the best it can be!

We hope you all have a great summer! Enjoy a virtual version of “Across the Field” and “On, Oh Brecksville” by Sam Dickhaut, Ayden Casa, and Luke Olesinksi to take us into summer break!

DRUMLINE AND FLAGLINE CAPTAIN RESULTS

Congratulations to or 2020-2021 Drumline! Please keep in mind students are placed on an instrument that best suits their abilities with consideration for overall balance of the drumline. Since the audition process was not able to be in-person and as comprehensive as past years, there is also the possibility of some movement over the summer and at sectionals/band camp. Please feel free to contact Scott Velardo with any questions!

Melanie Clark

BAND CAMP UPDATES

At this time we are still planning to be able to have Flagline Camp and Band Camp during the scheduled dates and times. The structure may look different from past years as decisions regarding COVID-19 and the start of the school year evolve, but students and parents should still keep the dates/times reserved that went out in the Summer DIGITAL Mailing. We hope to have more information avaiable at the beginning of July. If you did not receive the Summer DIGITAL Mailing, contact Ms. Astey. Please make sure you have all band dates for the 2020-2021 school year in your calendars.

Music and Squad Lists will be released around or before July 4th. We will send out Reminds when music is posted. Please make sure you are subscribed to the appropriate Remind accounts as listed in the Summer DIGITAL Mailing.
