Welcome to another week! This is just a quick reminder about four important upcoming events; a more detailed email will be sent out later this week. In order:
Tomorrow! We will have pre-UIL at CHS in the auditorium. Students need to wear their concert black clothes or bring clothes to change in to. We will leave for the high school after class begins, and students will be back before 7th period so the only classes they are missing are band and Jacket Time. I’m looking forward to some wonderful feedback from the judges!
After School Rehearsals
- Thursday, March 27th from 4:00-5:30 in the SMS band hall. Mr. Chris Brown from Mesquite ISD is coming out to work with us on that day. Mr. Brown has a history of success with middle school bands, and I am really looking forward to showing off the Symphonic Band!!
- Wednesday, April 2nd from 4:00-5:30 in the SMS band hall. Mr. Jonathon Hooper, retired Director of Bands from Tarleton University, will be here to work with us on this day. Mr. Hooper is an active private lessons teacher and clinician. Again, I’m very excited to have a prestigious guest with us that day in rehearsal!
UIL has been officially scheduled! We will perform at 3:55 and sight read at 4:20. The contest will be held at Burleson Centennial High School. We will leave during band class that day and return sometime early evening. Approximate return time to be determined. If possible, please join us that day! Parents and family are more than welcome to attend both the concert and sight reading portion on UIL, although we do ask that no small children be in attendance.
This should sum up important dates for the next two weeks. If you have any questions, please email me!
