LEHS Band Newsletter
Edition #6 (November 16 - 29, 2020)
A Note from Mr. Felice
Now that we have concluded the recording process for those band students auditioning for 6A Phase 1 (TMEA All-Region Band), we are waiting to learn which students advance to the Phase 2 auditions. We will also be having 9th graders sign up this week for the TMEA Freshman Band Auditions, which will be recorded after the Thanksgiving holidays.
Here are the TMEA All-Region Audition dates:
6A Phase 2 & 9th Grade - December 5-9, 2020 (virtual uploads)
The following instruments DO NOT have to submit for Phase 1, only the Phase 2 Auditions:
Piccolo / Oboe / English Horn / Eb Clarinet / Bass Clarinet / Contra Bas Clarinet / Bassoon / Contra Bassoon / Tenor Sax / Baritone Sax / Bass Trombone
Also, we do have one more HOME football game, on Friday, November 27th. Since this is the day after Thanksgiving, we understand that some students may not be in town. However, we are asking all students that are in town or available to participate in the band for that game. The game is scheduled for 2 pm on that Friday. The report time will be 1 pm at Lobo Stadium. These students will receive pizza and other prizes, due to their participation in this event during the holidays. We hope to have the majority of our band present at the game!
