GRAYHOUND BANDS

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Saturday, August 24

The first day of school is nearly here. Jazz Band will begin after Labor Day. I will make an announcement the first week of school and post exact date on the web page. Students enrolled in Band/Orchestra combo will have Orchestra the first day of school.

The first week of school will be extremely hectic, so please remain patient. We need to get all uniforms fitted, assigned, and loaded on the trailer. I am hoping all returning members will keep the same uniform, if not, let me know ASAP.

Our first performance will be Friday, August 30. Call time is 6:00 PM. We will not march much (if at all) at the first game, but will do a standing performance. There is a presentation during half time so we will not be able to perform all of our music.

Friday, August 16

Reminder, camp will finish at 7:00 pm tonight. Thanks for a great week. We have made great progress on the music.

Wednesday, August 14

It was great seeing everyone last night. I am looking forward to working with you all of this year. Please try and spend a little time each day working on the music. Our first football game is the first Friday of school.

Monday, August 12

Band Camp begins tomorrow at 5 PM. We will spend most of the time on music and some basic marching. I hope to have a roster sometime soon so I can finish our drill. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Wednesday, July 10

I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer break and managed to get in some quality practice on your instrument. I currently do not have access to the 2019-2020 database in Infinite Campus to create mailing labels and hope you will find this information on our web page.

Band Camp will be August 13th - 16th from 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM at BHS (Drumline will meet August 6th - 8th from 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM). This year we will be performing The Music of Queen. Please make every effort to attend camp. We have a lot of music to learn to learn and I would like to get a good start on our drill.

The 2019 show music, medical form, and uniform sizing sheet can all be downloaded from the band web page. Please bring your completed medical form and sizing sheet with you to band camp.

Take a moment to mark all band performances on your calendar (a detailed calendar can be found on the band web page). If you have a conflict with a performance please let me know as soon as possible so I can arrange an alternative assignment. Whenever possible I will give two weeks notice of additional performances. Please keep in mind - work is not an excuse to miss a performance.
