ELCO RAIDER BAND

Week #8

Hi Folks - What a great Homecoming tailgate and game! Thanks to the band boosters for providing the meal. We welcomed the 8th grade band members to perform with the band in the stands. Everyone had a great time. We had what I believe was the best performance to date and I received many compliments.


This week is SENIOR NIGHT! Yes, we are already at the last regularly scheduled home game of the season. Senior parents - please come down to the track when we take the field for our performance this Friday night and line up in alphabetical order by last name of the student. We will recognize our seniors at the conclusion of our show. Each senior will receive a boutonniere and have a poster on display at the game. You may take your senior's poster at the end of the game.


We will have jazz band rehearsal after school on Friday and students may stay after school. The boosters will be serving Marching Tacos! Please see the paragraph below for more information.

SENIOR NIGHT

Attention all parents of seniors: Friday October 15th during halftime, we will be recognizing our senior members of the band. Senior parents are asked to accompany their child on the field during the presentation. Seniors parents should make their way to the track during our halftime show and line up alphabetically by last name of the student. We will recognize the seniors immediately after our performance.

Lebanon County Band Exhibition

The Lebanon County Band Exhibition will take place at Cedar Crest High School this Saturday. Report time will be 2:30pm and departing at 3:00pm. We will travel to Cedar Crest High School where we will rehearse the combined band piece, God Bless America, to be performed at the end of the show. The boosters will be providing the band members with a sub meal after the rehearsal.


Price for admission to the exhibition is $7 for adults and $5 for senior citizens and children under 12.


The show will start at 5:45pm and conclude around 8:40pm with the combined band performance. We should be back to the school around 9:45-10:00pm. This is a mandatory performance so we can put our best foot forward for the crowd in attendance. The best part is, the crowd at this performance will actually sit quietly and listen to our show. LVC marching band will also be performing.


During the show the Cedar Crest Music Boosters will be running a 50/50 raffle and concession stands will be available to purchase food.
