Week of 11/4-11/8
Spring Semester Auditions begin this week
The audition material consists of the "9th grade cuts" for the 2019-2020 All region etudes.
All audition times are posted in the band hall on the white boards.
Here is a link to the grading rubric that was passed out in classes:
PARENT VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED
We will be hosting 9th grade all region at Boyd and need:
Room Monitors : 4
Please reach out to our volunteer coordinators if you are available to help.(firstname.lastname@example.org)
We appreciate your service in making this a successful night for Region 25 and representing the Bronco band.
November 6th rehearsal change...
This week our original rehearsal on November 7th has been moved to November 6th to help accommodate the drill team. The time has been moved up and shortened so that personal Wednesday evening activities can still happen (2:45-4:45pm).
Thank you for your flexibility, this is the only rehearsal for this week. Missing this rehearsal will result in not being able to perform during halftime on Senior Night!
