  • NYC Tour Rehearsal Dates!!
    We will be using the same music for the NYC performance on tour, as will be on our upcoming March band concert.   While we will be working on our music throughout the 3rd quarter, we need some rehearsals to put it together with only the folks who travelling to NYC.

    These are the dates of our NYC tour rehearsals for band:
    Tuesday, January 31st
    Monday, March 6th (followed by 8:00pm parent meeting in Cafeteria)
    Monday, March 13th
    Thursday. March 16th

    - Rehearsals will be from 6:00-8:00pm in E203.
    - If you are in choir or orchestra, you will need to split time with band and that other performing group.
