Band Labre Event

Mark your calendars now! The Band is sponsoring the DECEMBER 13TH Labre Event. We'll need 15 student volunteers for this event. The commitment on Sunday is between 3-4 hours and begins at Gibbons Hall at Saint Ignatius. Student signups will be available later this week.

Cleveland Jazz Heritage Orchestra

The students of the band and jazz ensemble will have a truly wonderful and unique "field trip" this upcoming Friday. The Cleveland Jazz Heritage Orchestra, one of the best groups in the country that is headed up by Mr. Reynolds, one of our instructors through The Music Settlement, will hold an open rehearsal followed by a Master Class and Q&A session 7th-9th periods this Friday in the Breen Center.


This group is comprised of some of the finest musicians and educators in the country. While based in Cleveland, most teach and perform around the country before coming back to hold performances. Having this opportunity is remarkable, and only possible because of Mr. Reynolds affiliation with the orchestra and Saint Ignatius. We're extremely blessed for this to come together on such short notice!


Mr. Evans has cleared all students Band and Jazz Band students to be present; you'll receive the paperwork tomorrow!

Dishes/Utensils

I still have a few dishes/utensils leftover from the Marching Wildcat for a Day cookout. If any of the listed stuff below is yours, please let me know!

  • Green Ziploc container
  • Red Betty Crocker serving spoon
  • Wooden serving spoon
  • Blue Anchor dish

St. Xavier Lunch

While still a week away, the Saint Xavier game will START at Saint Ignatius, with a joint rehearsal and lunch before we head to Byers Field. For this lunch we will be asking families to provide some food for both groups. I'm just providing a "heads up" so this doesn't come as a surprise.

Music Settlement Private Lessons

Following up on my encouragement for students to sign up, I want to say THANK YOU to the 20 students that are currently enrolled in these lessons. A program like this is a tremendous advantage to our program. Without your assistance in making it work, however, it wouldn't be working!


If you are interested in enrolling, please let me know! It is NEVER too late!
