Band update 02/24/15
Posted on 02/24/2015
Good Morning everyone!
I hope this email finds you all doing well! I just wanted to send out the schedule for this week’s after school rehearsals.
Monday- Jazz Rehearsal (only for those in jazz band)
Tuesday- Full band from 230-4, and Winterguard from 4-7
Thursday- Full band from 230-4; Dress Rehearsal from 630-730, Winterguard from 4-7pm
Friday- Optional Jazz Band Sectionals
For the dress rehearsal on Thursday evening, the band will be going through the entire program (3 total pieces). In addition to our stage performance pieces, we will also go through the sight reading process with students to simulate what it will be like next Friday at MPA. We will remain in the auditorium for the sight reading portion, so feel free to stay and check out what the entire process is for Concert MPA.
- All students will need to wear concert attire on Thursday for the dress rehearsal.
Next, congratulations to our winterguard for placing third this past Saturday at the Lyman competition! All members of the winterguard are doing a great job this season! Please try to come out to a show if you can!
Speaking of guard shows, we will be posting sign up sheets for the different positions we will have for our guard show later this week. I will send out an email once those are up.
We will need the following positions
- Gym Doors
- Warm up locations
- Swing Positions (these positions will rotate between warm up locations, gym doors, and concessions)
I think that is all for now. If you have any questions please feel free to email myself or Mr. Davenport. As always, thank you for all that you do!

I hope you are all doing well. I just wanted to touch base with information in regards to our MPA performance. We perform at 4:40pm on Friday March 6th, at Edgewater High School. If you can make it up there that would be great!
To help the students get prepared for the MPA concert, we will have a dress rehearsal on Thursday 2/26 @6:30pm in the East River Auditorium. This will be a required dress rehearsal for all students planning on attending MPA with the band. This rehearsal will also be open to anyone wanting to attend, and will be free of charge!
Thank you for your continued support of the band program!
