Band Camp

August 2020 Marching Saints 


What a great week of Band Camp!  


Thank you to the students, staff, and especially our volunteers for making this week possible.  It was fun to be making music together again.  


WEDNESDAY REHEARSALS

Following Band Camp, the Marching Saints will continue to rehearse on Wednesday evenings.  We will take this Wednesday off (Aug. 5) but will return to work on Wednesday August 12.  These will continue with this schedule until school starts or we receive permission to work together as a full ensemble.  (Fingers crossed).


Percussion Ensemble 6:00-7:00pm

Symphonic Band  7:00pm-8:00pm

Wind Ensemble  8:00pm-9:00pm


         AUGUST WEDNESDAY REHEARSAL DATES

                Aug. 12

                Aug. 26


Our tradition has been to rehearse all together on Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm once school starts.  We shall see how this all develops this fall.  


Thank you for your flexibility as we figure this all out.

MARCHING SAINTS PERFORMANCES


At this time, we do NOT have any performances lined up.  


We will not be performing at any venues or events until we have clearer guidance on how schools will be operated this fall and how this will affect us throughout the marching season.  Again, thank you for your patience as we try to figure it all out this year.
