Spring Band Concert Newsletter
Band Family Updates
Dear Parents, Guardians, Friends, and Families:
I hope this newsletter finds you anticipating a summer season full of family, outdoor fun, and relaxation.
It was not too long ago that we shared our Winter Band Showcase featuring the work of all our groups. We are now pleased to bring you the fruits of our hard working band students from the final quarter of the school year.
In this newsletter, we are very excited to showcase a video with our Senior Band spotlights, two senior soloists, and a live recording of our "Band Club" performance! We still have students who are as committed as ever learning music and about music featured virtually in this newsletter as well. How grateful are we for that! We are truly blessed to have so many excited and motivated music students who are willing to engage in our events. Thank you band students for making this year the best it could be! You should be proud of yourselves for your grit, perseverance, and tenacity.
Please read this entire newsletter as there is some great news about what our students have been doing. There is also information on what's to come, so please check that out. Most importantly, please be sure to check out the Spring Band Concert video that includes all the good things our students have been doing.

Student Instruments and Materials
If students are returning to Fenton Bands next school year, then they may continue to use any checked out instruments or equipment.
If students are not returning to Fenton Bands next year, then they should return all instruments loaned out to them at their earliest convenience.
The Fenton Jazz Bands met in a hybrid format starting on March 22 and concluded earlier this month with our live performance in the Fenton Auditorium. Their hard work is demonstrated in the video below.
Spring Band Concert Video
In the band video, you will hear the members of the Concert Band, Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Jazz Bands, "Band Club," and senior soloists perform what they've been working on. Please remember that some of these recordings have been built by the students without the opportunity of rehearsing together.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns. I hope you and your family have a great summer break.
