NO SUMMER SECTIONALS

THIS WEEK!!!

(July 6-10)

 

Restart on July 13!!!  See you then!!!

 

 

 

SUMMER SECTIONALS!!!

All Summer Sectional times are 10am-11:30am at the HS Band Hall

(enter through the loading dock)

 

Monday - Woodwinds

**Monday - Percussion/Drumline (noon-2pm)

Tuesday - Brass

Wednesday - (moved to Monday afternoon!!!)

Thursday - Free for All/Come One, Come All

 

If you can't make it during your "scheduled time", then

feel free to come on Thursday for a free-for-all rehearsal.

If you can only come on one day, but its for another

section, come on anyway.  Practice it practice!!!

 

Also, the Summer Sectionals are not mandatory, but we

didn't get our normal opportunity to learn the music at the

end of the school year, so these rehearsals are essential

for making our summer camps go smoother.

 

You should have a copy of your music, so if you can't come, please

practice it on your own.  If you need music, please contact me!!!

 

Below is a link to a YouTube recording of the music, so let it be your guide. 

The more you listen to it, the easier it will be

to both play and memorize it.

Disney Update
 
We knew that this was a possibility, and now is has become our reality. 
Because of the shutdown, our Disney trip will have to be postponed
until the 2020-21 school year...roughly a similar date. 
 
Seniors, your money paid into the trip will be refunded. 
I will need you to contact me via email to let me know who to
make the check out to, and where to mail it.
This is going to take some time, so be patient, but I will get
your refund to you (same with any senior chaperone...) 
 
If you are returning next year and have paid into the trip,
that money will carry over to next year's Disney Trip. 
Will the trip cost the same next year?  I don't know...we will
just have to see about that.  Luckily, there will be a fundraiser
that should cover whatever additional costs you may have. 
If it does increase, it shouldn't be by very much!
 
I'm really sorry that it has come to this, but as you know, the world that
we lived in in February is GONE and I just hope and pray that some
sort of "normalcy" can be recovered.
