Ensemble Concert and Fundraiser

Hello Everyone!

The Band did a great job yesterday getting a 2 on prepared music and a 2 in sight-reading. The judges were very tough, and I can assure you we were the youngest band there. This will only help us to get better as an ensemble as they listen to the judges comment on intonation and dynamic contrast, etc. This will help us in both concert and marching band!

The Ensemble Concert is this Thursday, March 17 at 6:30 pm. They have 2 options for dress: If they wear lots of green, I will be lenient as far as the T-shirts and jeans. If the student does not want to wear green, I expect them in Concert attire. Also, I will not need you to bring snacks this time. Since the Chorus class is hosting a Coffeehouse immediately after the concert, Mrs. Hooper and the Chorus class are going to provide the food and will sell it Bake-Sale style as a small fundraiser for them. The Band members are encouraged, but not required, to attend the Coffeehouse.

Finally, the Butter Braid Bread order forms go out today! They have until March 30 to sell as many as they can. Remember that 50% of the profit each student makes will go toward their New York trip next year.
