1) Congratulations to Reese for winning the soloist competition at UTM Honor Band. She had to send in a video a couple of weeks ago, get chosen as a finalist to do a second audition Friday, and then gave a special solo performance at the Honor Band Concert on Saturday! In addition, this honor included a $8000 scholarship over a 4 year period if she chooses to attend UTM as a music major. Reese, we are proud of you and how you represented yourself, your band, and your school!
2) Leadership team: we will have an 8th grade rehearsal Tuesday from 6:30 to 8. Be there to welcome the 8th graders, answer any questions they might have, and make our future band members feel like a part of our family. Don't forget to bring your instruments also. The rest of the Band will join the 8th graders at the February rehearsal.
3) I am excited to announce that the Jackson Area Community Band will be our special guests at our February 26 Ensemble Concert. This Band is made up of adults who have varied professions that get together twice a month to play their instruments they have been playing since beginning band. They will play one song by themselves, then join us for a song at the end of the concert following all of the ensembles.
