Weekly Update (12/5- 12/9)
This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!
Makenna and I are back from FSU Tri- State! It was a very fun and education experience for both of us! Be sure to ask Makenna about all the things she learned from her experience! What an honor, being the first student (at least in recent Baker County history) to attend!
This week is sure to be hectic, so mentally prepare yourself! But if everything works out, the Music Department will be mostly done with our Christmas Obligations on Thursday!
Have you Submitted your Deposit for Busch Gardens/ Tampa?
If you have not, but still really want to go, I recommend talking to Mrs. Luke or Mrs. Lowther.
Deposits were due November 30th.

Things to Note 🎵:
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.
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.
