For these dates, the students involved will be expected to report at 5:45pm IN THEIR CONCERT UNIFORM to get set up. The bands will be Video Recorded, so it is important that students take care to be in their proper uniform. We will then record our MPA Literature as quickly as possible. Students will be reminded that multiple takes of a piece are not advised because we want to have good chops for all our pieces. We will only take as much time as needed to record.


Parents/ Families of Seniors will be invited to come watch their student perform live free of charge. For others, the band recordings will be made available on the band website. Visitors will be expected to remain COMPLETELY silent or be removed from the band hall. Cellular devices and other devices which can make noise must be turned off/ silenced. Small Children must be kept home.


Leadership Fridays!


Leadership Fridays begin on Friday, March 5th. ANY STUDENT WISHING TO BE IN STUDENT LEADERSHIP MUST ATTEND ALL LEADERSHIP FRIDAYS.


Please purchase the book “Coach Wooden’s Pyramid of Success” by John Wooden and have read from the Foreword through Building Block 3: Friendship and be prepared to discuss on March 5th.
