  • CONGRATULATIONS! to the 26 students from the GC Band who participated in the Solo & Ensemble Festival this past Saturday at North Side HS in Jackson!  Out of the 26 students, 16 of them received a SUPERIOR RATING (I) and 9 of them received an EXCELLENT RATING (II)!!!  Tremendous job by all of the students involved!
  • Thanks to everyone who came out for our "Classical Concert" this past Thursday night!  Tremendous crowd for a great night of music performed by our students!
  • TOMORROW we start selling drinks for our St. Louis Trip in May!  All the profits from the drink fundraiser will go towards hotel cost and a meal for the students.  This trip is for ALL concert band AND parade band members.  Each student is asked to sell at least 6 cases of drinks.  Orders + $$$ are due back by Friday, March 17th!  The order form is attached.  We need EVERYONE to do his/her part so we can get this trip paid for!
  • Mr. Congiardo will have his final lesson for the semester with students TOMORROW!
  • NO JAZZ BAND REHEARSAL TOMORROW due to middle school band after school rehearsals!
  • Fall 2017 Color Guard Clinics begin TOMORROW from 3:30-5:00 in the main gym.  See attached information sheet for all pertinent information concerning the auditions.  This information has been available in the office and the band room for the last week.  This information has also been available at all middle schools.  Encourage any student in grades 8-11 interested to attend tomorrow!  If a student is involved in the after school rehearsals with the middle school band they will need to communicate with Mr. Brockman or Mr. Agee that they are interested in trying out for the guard but they MUST attend the middle school rehearsal instead of the guard clinic.
  • This Tuesday night are our Middle School Concerts @ 6:30 in the theater!  This is worth concert lettering credit for those needing to get this completed by the April 15th deadline.  Come out and support our future "Marching Pioneers"!
