News From the Band Room
ELCO RAIDER BAND
Hi Folks - The ELCO Raider Band had another great performance this past Friday night at the ELCO vs. A-C Football game. We were able to include the fourth number into the show and we will continue to work on the show this week to make it better! The game was an exciting one down to the last couple of minutes. Thank you to the band boosters for providing marching tacos prior to leaving for the game.
We will have our final Thursday night rehearsal for the full band this Thursday from 6-8:30pm at the high school. I ask that everyone make a strong effort to be there so we can clean as much as possible with the show. Drumline will continue to rehearse on Thursday nights.
Reminders for this Friday's football game against Columbia.
Uniform: Full Uniform
Report time: 4:30pm
The boosters will be providing a meal before we leave starting around 4:00pm. Justino's Pizza, Chips, and Fruit will be served. Students may stay after school if needed, however, they must remain in the band room or music tech lab.
I realize that there are some conflicts with other sporting events this Friday as well as some games later on in the season. Students may not be able to make the band bus departure time. What we have done in the past is have parents transport their athletes or carpool with other parents to the football game. As long as band members are there before our performance at halftime, that is fine. Even if they need to march in their sports uniform.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to email me: email@example.com.
Have a great week!
