News From the Band Room
ELCO RAIDER BAND
Tonight we will be having a parent meeting for both the musical, White Christmas at 6:00pm and a band booster meeting in the band room immediately following. Please try to attend these meetings as we will be discussing important details about the upcoming musical and band events.
Details for Friday:
Lebanon County Band Exhibition
The Lebanon County Band Exhibition will take place on Saturday, October 21st at Palmyra football stadium (directly behind Palmyra Middle School). Report time that day will be 3:15, Inspection at 3:30pm, and departure at 3:45pm. We will travel to Palmyra stadium and have a boxed lunch provided by Palmyra and our band boosters. Students should have ordered their meals on the google form I sent out a few weeks ago. The exhibition will start at 6:00pm and end around 9:00pm. Tickets are $7/adults and $3/students & senior citizens. Concessions, Farm Show Milkshakes, and candy grams for your band member will be available for purchase. If you ordered a shirt for the exhibition, they will be distributed that night to each band director and I will distribute when we get back to the school. The link to order shirts is HERE. Deadline to order is THIS FRIDAY OCTOBER 6TH.
The line up for the exhibition is as follows:
Palmyra Middle School Band 5:55pm (National Anthem)
Northern Lebanon 6:00pm
Milton Hershey 6:20pm
Cedar Crest 7:00pm
All bands will end the exhibition on the field playing their favorite stands tunes.
SPRING (winter) MUSICAL
As you are aware, due to the ongoing construction at the high school, this year the "spring" musical will be held in December. We are thrilled to be presenting Irving Berlin's "White Christmas!" Auditions have taken place this week, cast list is coming out on Friday, and the students in chorus and band are all signed up for many different aspects of the production.
On Tuesday, October 10, we will be having an extremely important parent meeting. The meeting will be held at 6pm in the high school auditorium and will last about a half hour. This informative meeting is crucial to understanding the process of the production this year and will allow parent the opportunity to ask questions, meet the directing team, and sign up for all aspects of the show. Please use door #27 (near the band trailer) to enter.
The students are already in "show mode" and we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday!
Drumline rehearsals will continue on Thursday nights from 6:30pm-8:30pm throughout the season.
