February 14, 2020 - Band Updates

1. Medical Forms DUE TODAY

Today was the hard deadline for medical forms for Minneapolis or Jazz trips.  Questions?  Contact Mr. Rothacker or our school nurse Ms. Megan Westphal.  (mwestphal@mcpasd.k12.wi.us)

 

2. Solo & Ensemble Volunteers

All hands on deck for our district solo and ensemble festival next Saturday!  It takes a lot of volunteers to run a festival of our size, so please sign up for a shift or two.

 

Parents, sign up here.

Students, sign up here. (Be mindful of your performance schedule.)

 

3. Solo & Ensemble Schedule

The first published draft of the schedule is now posted on the BOPA website.  This is not finalized, but it's pretty close.  See Mr. V or Mr. Kurr with any questions.

 

4. Solo & Ensemble Reminder

- Class A solos: don't forget that you need to procure an original copy of your solo to give the judge.  You will also need to number each measure so the judge can provide notes on your performance.  Class B/C solos and ensembles may use a school copy, as long as you got the music from the school in the first place.

 

5. Pep Band

Pep band season is ending soon.  Check the calendar to make sure you attend four games!

 

6. FeePay Posted

Feepay for Minneapolis is posted, and I was told that Solo/Ensemble Feepay should have been posted today.  (Unconfirmed, so please don't email if you can't find it!)  Remember that both will show up under "Fees" -- NOT "Activities."
