Weekly Update (3/25- 3/29)

This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!


I'm hoping everyone has had an ample amount of rest! I know I did!


We are going to be immediately entering a very busy next few weeks. For context, there is 1 to 3 performances or major events every week for the next 6 WEEKS.


  • This Week, it's State Jazz/ S&E MPA

  • The following week it's thee Spring Concert and JU Jazz Fest

  • The following week is Symphonic Band MPA (Wind Ensemble goes to watch).

  • The following week we have major Wind Ensemble Rehearsals with guest clinicians in prep for State. We also have Commitment Night and Majorette Auditions

  • The following week is State Concert MPA and the Band EOY Trip

  • The following week is Student Staff Interviews, Drum Major Auditions, Music Ensemble Auditions, the Pass the Torch Concert, and the Music Department Banquet

  • Finally, two weeks later is Graduation.


I'm not going to lie to you. It's going to be very busy. Organize your time and stay on top of things. Don't miss school or things will quickly become more challenging for you. Be positive.


Also, avoid bringing problems to the band director, and if you must, then please have solutions.
