Hello band parents and students-
Please see below for a few important announcements.
1. Jazz Bands Start Monday! - All jazz bands will start Monday, October 15th. See you there! If you didn't sign up, it's not too late to join jazz lab - just see Mr. Brown.
2. Jazz Cabaret Date/Venue Change - Due to some changes at the Union South venue, our Jazz Cabaret 2019 will take place in the evening on Friday, January 11th (not the 12th as indicated on earlier calendars) at the Madison Marriott West. Please mark your calendars accordingly. Among other advantages, we are excited that all four jazz bands will be able to perform on the same evening program with no space limitations.
3. Parent Teacher Conferences - The first round of private parent-teacher conferences are next Thursday, October 18th from 4:00-7:00. We love to see parents at conferences, even if it's just to say hello and put a face to a name. (Plus it makes our administration happy!) Please contact us if you're interested in setting up a time.
In particular, we strongly encourage juniors, seniors, or even sophomores who are considering studying or just playing music in college to meet with us and talk through the process.
4. Marching Band - Finally, I need to give a shout-out to the marching band, who played an impressive performance on a muddy field on Sunday, improving their score by 4 points (out of 100) and winning Best Color Guard. Wish them luck at the State Championships Saturday!
Thanks for reading, everyone.
