Marching Band Performance Schedule

Here is the schedule of all the performances for the 2011 Marching Band. Remember we are doing a full varsity Football schedule this year, and we will be attending all of the home and away Friday night games. This will be a step up from the previous two years, where we only did home games on Monday nights. (We will not be performing at Freshmen or JV games from now on). Specific times and info will follow as I am told our performance times.

Saturday August 6 - 4:30 pm. Pictures for Football program and play at the SGC Hornet Kickoff at 6 pm
Friday August 19 - Home vs. West Carroll
Friday, August 26 - Away vs. JCS
Saturday, August 27 - Percussion Only! Drumline Tuneup day at UT Martin. Time TBA as soon as I find out from UTM. This is a great opportunity to play in front of and learn from the UTM Drumline and Julie Davila - a nationally renowned percussionist!
Friday, September 2 - Home vs. Ripley
Friday, September 9 - Away game vs. Trinity
Friday, September 16 - Home vs. Milan
Saturday, September 24 - 2 Contests, both at Liberty Tech High School. One in the morning and one in the evening.
Friday, September 30 - Away vs. Obion Co
Saturday, October 1 - Contest at Gibson County (afternoon/evening)
Thursday, October 6 - Away vs. Gibson County
Friday, October 14 - Home vs. Haywood Co
Saturday, October 15 - Contest at Trenton (morning/afternoon)
Friday, October 21 - Home vs. Crockett Co
Saturday, October 22 - Contest at Huntington
Friday, October 28 - Away vs. Westview
Saturday, November 5 - Division II State Competition (all day)

Remember, all of these performances will count as grades. But more importantly, these are why the students work - to perform. If there are ever any conflicts, please let me know ASAP. I require at least 2 weeks notice for a football game and a month notice for a contest so that I can make any adjustments needed to the marching show. That's the thing about band - they are all Starters, no bench players. If one person is missing, it affects the entire look and sound of the show.

You will notice that there is no game on Sept. 23, and no contests on Oct 8 (Fall Break) or Oct. 29. Finally, November 4th could be a possible 1st round playoff game for the football team. Thank you for you help in making this a successful performing season for the 2011 Marching Hornets!
