Band parents and students,
Here are a few quick updates about upcoming events. We're excited to see you back in the building next month, and we're especially looking forward to playing our instruments together again in the spring as soon as we can!
1) Solo & Ensemble Questionnaire
Every band student needs to submit this form tomorrow regarding solo/ensemble. (It should also appear on your BUZZ to-do list.)
2) Asynchronous Assignments Our asynchronous work is up and running in BUZZ. This semester, we are working on concert band music instead of etudes, in preparation for an eventual outdoor performance in the spring. The next asynchronous assignment is due Sunday, 2/28.
3) Spring Solo & Ensemble
The second round of WSMA virtual solo/ensemble is coming up in a few months. Because of our virtual/hybrid setup, we are not having a solo/ensemble unit during class. However, interested students may still submit a performance for solo/ensemble.
