Updated: Nov 29, 2022

This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!


gif

Can you believe it? Thanksgiving has officially kicked off the Holiday season! Where has the year gone?


For us, this means we have a lot of performances coming up! Please keep your calendar open because there are performances every week in December!


That said, we have VERY limited rehearsal time remaining. Please plan to be at school because we have important in class rehearsals every day (whether or not I'm present). It's going to be a photo finish making it to our Christmas Concert, folks! And then, after our Christmas Concert, we have to begin looking at MPA Repertoire! I have some interesting things for us to look at, but we need to nail down something before Christmas Break!

 

Have you Submitted your Deposit for Busch Gardens/ Tampa?


This Year, the band's end of year trip will be a 3 or 4 day (waiting to hear back from Admin 😔) trip to Tampa, Florida from Thursday, April 13th to Sunday, April 16th to explore different sights including visiting Busch Gardens! Attendees need to submit their Deposit as soon as possible so we can begin planning for the trip!

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.
