This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!


This week is pretty exciting! Stay with it!


  1. During School on Thursday, there will be a performance by the UNF Jazz Ensemble III in our Band Room! Passes for this performance will be found by my door. If you are in Band (including Colorguard and Majorettes) or Chorus, you are welcome to attend!

  2. We will be having Wind Ensemble Rehearsal on Thursday from 4pm to 6pm.

  3. After rehearsal Thursday is NFHB Recording Day. If you are auditioning for North Florida Honor Band, you will need to stick around and we will record auditions. More details to come.

  4. On Friday, we now have a Post Season Football Game AWAY vs. Baldwin HS. We will NOT perform our Halftime Show. As our Uniforms are not yet clean, we will wear our band shirt and blue jeans. 4pm Call Time.

  5. On Saturday we have FSU Band Day. You can click the link HERE for an itinerary. I can add people for this event until Thursday. There are still plenty of seats left! If you are interesting in going, please let me know!


 

Our Fall Fundraiser with Cherrydale is just about over! Please turn in physical sale forms to me on Tuesday so they can be mailed off.

Things to Note 🎵:


Concert Attire


This is everyone’s reminder to take care of their concert attire:


Concert Attire- Wind Ensemble


Men- In addition to your tux shirt and pants (you can purchase any Tuxedo shirt and tuxedo pants) , you need to purchase this vest as a part of your concert attire.


S.H. Churchill & Co. Men's 4 Piece Vest Set, with Bow Tie, Neck Tie & Pocket Hankie


Ladies- if you haven’t already, you need to purchase your Corelli Dress from Southeastern Apparel. Do this soon so that in case there are any errors you can exchange your dress for the right size. At this time, the band is not planning to do a group order. If you need help with sizing (first ask your parent) you can ask a Drum Major and they should be able to help you. You can also ask veterans and alumni to see if they have outgrown their dress and if you might be able to purchase it from them.


Concert Attire- Symphonic Band


For Concert Performances, students must arrive dressed in:

• Black Long Sleeve Button Down Dress Shirt

• Black Tuxedo Pants (Slacks)

• Black Dress Socks

• Black Dress Shoes (Marching Shoes are acceptable)


If anyone has difficulty acquiring any of these items, please reach out to Mr. Moore immediately.
