Important High School Rehearsal Changes
Also due to the daily class schedule of one morning band and one afternoon band, the students only meet together once during the week at the evening rehearsal. Instead of adding an extra night of rehearsal to your busy schedules, I have decided to extend the current evening rehearsal 30 minutes. Thus, all practices will begin at 6:30pm and end at 9:00pm. The extra 1/2 hour will help us get a little more rehearsal as one ensemble. I realize that this is different than the original schedule but I am certain that the extra time will be a benefit our students and the band program.
So, all future evening rehearsals beginning this Tuesday, 9/17 will be at Andrews University and will run from 6:30pm to 9:00pm.
If you have any questions or concerns please email me, Kelly Rosselit at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your understanding and flexibility.
