Weekly Update (4/12- 4/17)
This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!
So much stuff to do!!!!
If you are in NFHB, please make sure your concert attire is clean, pressed, and ready to go for Friday!
The All Ensembles Timing Rehearsal is on Tuesday. This is for both Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band combined. Chorus is joining us. Percussion is needed the entire time. The rehearsals leading up to this concert are lengthy, but this is needed because the Prism Concert is more of a production than just a concert. The Timing Rehearsal is similar to a table- read or a read- through in theater.
Parents and Students may now register for the Music Department Band Banquet which is on Saturday, May 8th at 6:00pm! You can do this on https://www.bakercountybands.org/events. Please be sure to include all the people planning to attend—we want to have as accurate a number as possible to avoid overspending on food. Thanks! Please register by THIS FRIDAY, APRIL 16th AT THE LATEST.
Band Parents/ Students—please make sure to set aside time to help at the Baker County Band Boosters Spring Car Wash. It is on Saturday, April 17th at 9am. Sign up here! For more information, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.

A lot of people have indicated that they have not received the email from Cut Time, in which case please follow this link and self- register.
On April 14th, Charms will be defunct for us, and Cut Time will be our band’s new organizational program. If you choose not to register, you will not receive emails from me anymore (and that would be really really bad! ☹)
There are both STUDENT and PARENT accounts and they should be linked. When you register, please make sure that the information that has been put in is correct (especially your Home/ Mobile Phone and email!) Students, the email put in currently is your school email. Please change it to your MOST CHECKED email (so if you check your personal email more, you need to set it to that.)
I will be updating you more on Cut Time as we move on, but I think Cut Time will be a lot more user friendly. 😊
If applying for a position on Student Staff, please review this document. This should concisely state all expectations for Student Staff applications over the coming few weeks. Expectations grow as the competition gets more tense, and because we are looking to downsize, a lot of positions are going to be highly competitive.
For the Colorguard and Majorette teams, it is important to note that there may be other leadership opportunities made available aside from Captain. More information will come about this later. Best Wishes! If there are any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
