Fall Marching 2020, GBAPS

We understand that everyone wants answers about the future and wants everything to return to ‘life as we know it.’ But as we know very well with COVID, all plans change very quickly and we have to make adjustments. Just as the district’s priority is the health and safety of everyone, our first priority is keeping everyone safe. In order to do so, we have been having conversations with the district and there are a lot of questions with the playing of instruments and the aerosols they produce.  

The GBAPS Band Directors want to try to give you some insight as to our intentions so you can plan accordingly: 

  • We will not be holding summer marching band camps for all GBAPS High Schools. 
  • Individual directors will be contacting their students/families if they want to have a meeting prior to the start of the school year with administrative approval. 
  • As for our fall marching season we are following an if/then plan according to what the district decides. Our plans are as follows:
    • We will be strictly enforcing all social distancing recommendations (maintaining six foot distance) as well as face covering requirements (students will wear masks until they play their instrument)
    • We will not be utilizing uniforms this school year. Individual directors will be in contact regarding performance attire.
    • If school begins fully in person
      • Our marching show will look different. We will perform music as a standstill on the field.  
    • If school begins in a hybrid  model
      • We will perform music as a standstill on the field.  Other aspects of performing at the games will be determined by the parameters set up for the event by administration. 
      • Pre-game pep band may be possible
    • If school begins virtually- we will not be performing for fall sports. We will still rehearse fall marching music in some fashion in fall (If you have creative ideas, let us know!) 

At this time, directors will share anticipated event calendars with the understanding that all events are subject to change.  

Please know that all of our plans are simply plans.  

We must remain flexible as we are still unsure how everything will actually play out. We are just as uncertain and unsure as all of you and wish we had answers. Know that we will make every effort to provide a performance opportunity for our students. All four high school band directors are committed to working together to make sure all of our students are provided the same opportunities.  

If you have any questions please reach out to your director.  

Stay safe and healthy,

It's Concert Time!
Our "Covid Concert" is Here

Each performance is 2.5 to 3 minutes in length. Please watch each one to support the entire band program. I commend you for the work you did to make this work.
While the music selected was all done before anything happened in this interesting period of time, the music actually fits the things we ended up experiencing.
A note to our non-band viewers: at no time were performers actually performing together. Each student provided recordings of their own part and they were mixed into a collective performance. 

Concert Band, Glory.mp4

Sym Band, Dr. Who.mp4

Wind Ens, Pirates.mp4

  Band Online
We can do this everyone!!!!

So this is maybe not the best way to have band, but for a couple weeks, it is the only way to have band. I am working on things for you to do to start getting ready with the music that was handed out before and during final exams. 

I will be sharing google classroom work for you to do, even if you don't have your instrument or music. I do hope you took these items home, as well as your laptop. Please take the week of Spring Break for yourself and get ready for some interesting work starting March 23rd. 

Check your school email and sign on for classroom.

Silent Night is a high school homelessness awareness benefit started by East basketball coach, Rick Rosinski. East and West take one home game each year and play both varsity games on a Saturday (JV games on another night of the week) and add extra components to the games. These things include a costume contest, school hot wing eating contest (sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings), pep bands from both schools and complete silence at the beginning of each game until one of the teams scores 10 points.
This year the game is at East (next year it will be at West). Due to the fact that our show choir, Rhapsody, has a competition that day, we will perform before the 1st game instead of the 2nd game as is customary. Band members in Rhapsody can make it back for the 1st game only. 
Here is the East pep band schedule for Silent Night, February 1, 2020:

arrive at door 8 between 4:00 and 4:15 pm for announcements and warm-up

move to the gym at 4:30perform pre-game starting at 4:35perform 

Nation Anthem at 5:00

return to band room at 5:05 to put away instruments At that time you may either go home or return to the gym to be part of audience (free of charge). Rhapsody members will return to DePere for the remainder of the competition Silent Night is one of the ten pep bands on our schedule - remember you need 7 total basketball pep bands for 100% in pep band performance!
