Weekly Update (1/24- 1/29)

This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!


Plenty of things going on this week! Please make sure you are reading these updates and staying with it!


Now available are the Band Booster Scholarship Applications! One Scholarship is for any student in our Band Program who would like to go to a summer music camp! All Drum Major Candidates are required to apply for this option, but all my students are encouraged to apply. The money from this helps to pay for a trip to a summer music camp of your choosing. Sumer Music Camps are a life- changing experience where you can learn how to become a strong musician and make great friends with students from across the state. For more info about the scholarship, click the link below.

Music Ensemble Auditions which will determine placement in Wind Ensemble for the 2022-23 School Year will begin March 28th. The number of musicians in Wind Ensemble will stay about the same and most students entering the band next year will be placed in Symphonic Band as a result. This is good news for both ensembles! Wind Ensemble will be very competitive, and Symphonic Band will increase dramatically in size!
