Weekly Update (9/27- 10/2)

This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!

October draws near….

I want to forewarn that October gets really busy really quick. We will get through it together, but for us to be successful we must press on. Please continue to be present at rehearsals and performances. This month is WHY we’ve been working so hard, and now we must keep working AND perform at the same time. We’ve got this cats!

IT’S A GAME WEEK! This home game is vs. Bishop Kenny HS. Call time is 4:00pm at the High School.

We also have a Saturday rehearsal planned with Professor Christopher Creswell. For us to have him the whole time, we will need to run rehearsal from 9am to Noon. I will be checking with admin to confirm that we may use the stadium. This being the case, it will be one of the few rehearsals where we can rehearse on our football stadium, and it will be one of the FOUR remaining rehearsals (no rehearsal on the day of the Homecoming Parade) we have before we go to competition at Fleming Island High School. It will also likely be the most crucial in terms of getting our show cleaned up. Please be present.
