ORLANDO TRIP UPDATES!

Big picture
ORLANDO CATCH-ALL NEWSLETTER!

Includes rooming/walkaround lists, info for medication turn in (OTC meds=April 27) and other dates/info!

NOTE:


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.


Thanks!

General Info:

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.
