Saint Ignatius Band Announcements
Summer 2015 - Part 1
A special thank you to Mr. Rob Gerrity and Mrs. Anne Hribar for all of their assistance and support in organizing the event!!!
The Music Settlement
This upcoming year we have a very similar agreement in place with The Music Settlement, a phenomenal arts organization that seeks to further the arts throughout Cleveland. With The Music Settlement, we'll be offering the same curricular orchestra, and the same style of after school music lessons. The added benefit, and a driving factor in our decision to team up with TMS was the cost of lessons to families. I'm excited to announce the price will drop deeply, with many scholarships available to students.
In addition to our partnerships in course offerings and music lessons, Saint Ignatius is actively looking to partner with The Music Settlement for Sophomore Service offerings. While nothing has been finalized as of now, there is a great amount of potential for opportunities in Ohio City.
More information regarding this topic will soon be available. The work that Cleveland Music Collaborative provided was fantastic. I'm extremely grateful for all that they did in furthering the music education of our students.
Summer Instrumental Use
Trombones (if needed)
Clarinets (if needed)
I'm still waiting to receive tenor saxophones back from the shop. Once they are available, I will let you know!
If you would like to join the Uniform Committee, we're looking for a few more hands as we start the upcoming year. We could especially use some help July 22nd-24th for the fittings. If you are able to help at that event, or throughout the year, please contact Pam Consolo at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Let's Talk About Practice
Parents - You can help in this endeavor! Set aside a time and place for your son to get some solid minutes with his instrument. Ask questions (was the music difficult? what did you improve on most? what do you still need to work on?). If you have questions about the music, I'm happy to answer them!
Professional Model Tenor Saxophones
Professional Model Baritone Saxophone
Wooden Bass Clarinet
Additional King Concert Tubas
Additional Marching Mellophones
Additional Marching Baritones
It goes without saying that the acquisition of these instruments is a true blessing. The support this ensemble receives is unique; the Administration continues to give us every tool to succeed!
