Announcements and News

Message from the Directors

Things are moving right along with all the Norcross Bands! This past week we started recordings for virtual concerts, winter guard began, and we won the 2nd round playoff game. So here are some reminders and what is going on this week:

  • Virtual performances are being put together, so please look out for videos here to come very soon!
  • Wind Symphony Brass, Symphonic Winds, Percussion Ensemble, and Winter Guard all have rehearsals this week.
  • We will be playing Colquitt County High School at home this Friday for the Quarter Finals.
  • Performance Finals are underway. Please make sure you know what is expected of you.
  • All-State and District Band Auditions will be due early in January. Make sure you are keeping up with your music.
  • The Wind Symphony and the Percussion Ensemble will be recording their performance for the Georgia Music Educators Association in January.

We would like to say thank you to all of the students and their families for being flexible in this crazy time. With a late playoff season and Covid-19 Protocols, we are constantly changing rehearsal schedules and events. With that being said, we will continue to do our best to make sure your child is aware of any added rehearsals at least 2 weeks in advance. Please continue to check the newsletter so that your student knows what is expected of them.

We're almost to the holidays! Stay safe and warm!
