We are looking a the general start time for the first group on each night being between 5:30 or 6pm.
Reminder: THIS CONCERT IS THE STUDENTS' FINAL EXAM GRADE. Please plan on being present - and go ahead and plan to spend the whole evening with us. This is a big deal, your students will enjoy all of it and should be very proud of it all!
BEGINNER BAND REHEARSAL FRIDAY, 4/29
Highly ecouraged to attend!
Please join us for a full-band rehearsal this Friday! Since our beginner classes are separated by section during the day, we would like to have as many students attend the full band rehearsal on Friday to play with all sections before our Monday, May 2 Concert.
- Rehearsal: 3:30-5:00
- Pizza Party: 5:00-5:30
PARENT HELP NEEDED!
If you can pick up/deliver pizza, fill our coolers with ice at the field house, bring plates, cups, napkins, sodas, supervise, sign-up here!
ORLANDO TRIP UPDATES!
Includes rooming/walkaround lists, info for medication turn in (OTC meds=April 27) and other dates/info!
We will NOT be performing with a percussion ensemble in Orlando. There were too many factors in place working against us and we have decided to withdraw our registration for percussion ensemble.
We WILL perform as a band, so this should only affect percussionists who thought they needed to report Thursdays for rehearsals. Now, they do not.
Next big group meeting: Turn in all paperwork
THURSDAY MAY 5th - 5:30pm
Trip band rehearsals are on Wednesdays. This is required for trip participants. Please email us if your student won't be able to attend.
Please also make sure you have filled out the google form below so we can get your trip shirts ordered! DO NOT FILL THIS OUT FOR YOUR STUDENT and read carefully - We got student shirt sizes in class.
This form is for Orlando Chaperones/Adults/Siblings attending the trip. No DMS Band Students.
Read through this slideshow and email us with any questions you may have. Students will get color coded paper packets and garment backs in the next couple of weeks - and a calendar will go out very soon with trip rehearsals, dates and info! Thanks!
