Weekly Update 11/9- 11/13

This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!


Welcome to Concert Season!! I am elated to work with all of you to put on as high of quality of a Christmas Concert as possible! I think we have some good literature picked out and that our concert is going to be amazing! The theme for this Christmas Concert is “Home for the Holidays”. And we’ll be playing several Christmas tunes that tie in with that theme.


Some other information— as of now, and after a discussion with administration, the band will not be participating in the community event being held in the stead of the Lighted Christmas Parade. The Band Boosters has also voted to cancel the annual Breakfast with Santa event.

In other news, the band has a brand new website! A lot of it is still under construction, but over time we hope to make it a hub for our band’s activities and more. The domain will change soon, but currently you can find it at: https://mylesmoore.wixsite.com/bakercountybands. Go check it out!

Wind Ensemble Attire

Men- I need to apologize up front because I realize now this is not in the Band Handbook— however, in addition to your tux shirt and pants, you need to purchase this vest as a part of your concert attire. I recommend taking advantage of Black Friday Savings. S.H. Churchill & Co. Men's 4 Piece Vest Set, with Bow Tie, Neck Tie & Pocket Hankie https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077MMF11K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabc_MOAPFbWQNEEQQ?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

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 Wendy or Allie, and they should be able to help you. https://sepapparel.com/corelli-concert-choir-dress.html
