  • Basketball Pep Band Season!!
    Each year, the band performs at four varsity boys and girls basketball games!
    We ask that all band students come to three out of the four dates.
    Our dates are:
    - Tuesday, January 10th
    - Friday, January 13th
    - Friday, February 3rd
    - Friday, February 10th

    Please report to band room by 6:30pm for a quick 30 minute rehearsal.
    Band plays during warmups and throughout time-outs, using their folio/music
    from marching band.  Some new music will be handed out as well each game.

    Check-in with Mr. G or Mrs. D when you arrive.
    Students just wear regular relaxed school clothes, preferably MW spirit wear!

  • Full Year Band Department Calendar
    Please click HERE for the full calendar from now until June 2017.

    Please enter all dates in bold into your home and work calendars as 
    they are required to attend.   Excused absences from a 
    required performance/event are dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
    Excused and unexcused absences are both to be made up (see below).

    Please note that concerts are considered to be summative performances
    of an 8-week long project and will be graded as such.  Absence will not only
    hurt the ensemble, but result in a required live individual performance of all
    concert material by student for Mr. Gerstmayr to make-up the grade.  
    Failure to do so will result in an F for the summative.
