Saint Ignatius Band Announcements

Assumption College Recap

Rehearsal, Mass, Pack-up:

Great job before the game. The uniform distribution process is in full swing now. Just remember that ONLY the reps and officers can hand them out. Please do not jump the line!

Game:

This will always be a memorable one as it was the first time we got to debut the uniforms. I thought the look and sound was really awesome, and you keep dialing up your performance ability. Well done!

Postgame:

Thank you all for the patience in the sign out process at Byers Field. Another big thank you to all the students who helped unpack once we got to Breen.

Parma Band Spectacular Information

This weekend we'll be performing at the Parma Band Spectacular. This event brings ten high school bands together to perform their feature halftime show for each other. It's a fantastic way to see some other shows and get a remarkably receptive crowd to perform for.

Tickets for the event are available at the gate (this is a fantastic fundraiser for the Parma Band Program). To my knowledge, no tickets are pre-ordered.

The Bands performing are: Bay Village, Normandy, North Olmsted, Olmsted Falls, Parma Senior, Rocky River, Streetsboro, Strongsville, Valley Forge and Saint Ignatius. We are performing FIRST, right at 7pm!

Universal Trip Information

I sent an e-mail earlier this week, however here's the big ticket information. Trip payment will be covered in three separate payments:

October 8th - $250 ($150 for Chaperones)

November 5th - $200 ($100 for Chaperones)

December 3rd - $200 ($100 for Chaperones)

Checks made out to Saint Ignatius are the preferred method, however cash is absolutely fine as well. Please do not submit payments too far in advance. I'd much rather receive them in the week of collection.

Marching Wildcat for a Day

We're off to a great start with student participation, however I'd love to have many more. Schools have all been contacted at this point, so our best method is word of mouth. Invite friends, family members, and neighbors!

Questions?

Let me know if there's anything I can help with!
