This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!
Wow! We have accomplished so much in such a short amount of time!!! Wind Ensemble, I am SO proud of your performance on Friday! You guys have not only made history by breaking a 20 year State Dry- Spell, but then also earning Straight Excellents for the first time in program history in 32 years!!! That's insane! We have to celebrate!!!
Speaking of celebration, the Music Department Banquet is this Saturday at 6:00pm at the First Baptist Church of Macclenny! Students, please RSVP ASAP by going to the "Events" page on the Band Website! If you have family members of any age that wish to attend AND eat, they MUST purchase an "Adult Ticket (Eating)" ticket to eat at the banquet. We will start off with an award ceremony and then we will dance the night away!!
