Patrick Marsh Middle School Band

PMMS Band Final Newsletter (June 7-10, 2021)

With Gratitude...

On behalf of the Patrick Marsh Band Staff, thank you for a wonderful school year. It certainly was a challenge! We are so proud of your children and what they were able to accomplish this year. We are excited about the future and all of the promise it holds. Please encourage your children to keep playing their instruments over the summer. One goal we always recommend is to complete one lesson book page a week. If you are looking for other creative ideas, just ask us!


In February we had a number of students who auditioned for the WSMA State Honors Band. In order to audition a student needed to record a Class B level solo (8-10 grade level), four memorized scales, as well as sight reading.

Congratulations to Penelope Schlotz (flute) and Maya Lisowe (flute) for being selected as Alternates and Emily Nawrot (tuba) for being selected for the group! Emily will rehearse with students from across Wisconsin next October before performing at the Wisconsin State Music Conference.

Congratulations students on this wonderful honor!!

Get In Free!

The Madison Scouts Drum Corps is holding their home show in the Bank of Sun Prairie Stadium on Saturday, July 31 at 7:00 PM. The Scouts have allowed our band parents the opportunity to sell concessions for this event. This is a HUGE deal as the show will sell out fast and has the potential to bring in some much-needed income for the upcoming 50th season of the Sound of Sun Prairie Marching Band. We need parent/guardian volunteers to serve as ushers and to work in the concession stand. Please fill out the form below if you are interested and available. Mr. Gleason will be there and will help "train you in" on any job that you select. It will be fun and a GREAT way to help support the band program. Please fill out the form below if you are interested/available. Thank you!
