NORTH BAND NOTES

January 19-22, 2016

This Week's Schedule

We hope you are out enjoying this awesome weekend! This week is a relatively calm one!


On Tuesday, all 8th graders will attend Band 101 at Pearce High School. 8th graders and their parents should meet in the Pearce Band Hall at 5:45pm, where you'll be escorted off to some fun activities with the Pearce Band students. Parents will have a meeting starting at 6:00pm. Dinner is served for band members and their parents at 7:00pm. We did no hear back from everyone, so we planned on at least one parent per student.


Students do not need to bring their instruments, only an open mind! We'll see you then!

RICHARDSON CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL

Thanks to all of the students who turned in their blue sheets on time! We still have several missing...so please get those to us Tuesday. Additionally, wind players should have their accompanist secured by the end of the week at the latest. This list is also available on the band website (like provided above).

Please also remember that soloists will need to acquire an original copy of their solo for the contest. A list of local music stores (that carry sheet music) is on the bottom of the Accompanist List.

We'll send out more details as we receive them, but Symphonic 1 and Symphonic 2 bands will perform in a pep rally on the evening of Viking Navigation. Stay tuned to your emails this week for those details!
