Our first week back from Spring Break was filled with great rehearsals. We hope to continue with the progress we have made as we continue to strive for a Superior UIL performance. Here are a few details about important things in band:
Please remember that mini lessons have replaced the weekly sectional. Every student should have completed one mini lesson by tomorrow, Tuesday, March 25. The second mini lesson will begin next week.
Full Band Rehearsals
Our first full band rehearsal was last Tuesday. Please make sure that you are on time to each of these. They all take place at CHS from 6-8pm. Our remaining rehearsals are:
Thursday, March 27
Thursday, April 3
Monday, April 7
Pre-UIL will take place tomorrow, Tuesday, March 25. Students will miss their 3rd period class (and 4th period Wind Ensemble. Students must come dressed in their all black band uniform (black band polo, black pants, shoes, socks, and belt). If they would like, they may bring a change of clothes for when we return; however, they must be wearing their band uniform at school in the morning. We will perform at CHS at 11:15. While it would be nice to have an audience we would prefer for you to attend our actual UIL performance, if possible.
The Wind Ensemble will be performing their UIL program on Thursday, April 10 at 10:40am at Burleson Centennial HS. It would be wonderful to have as many parents in the audience for this performance. I will send more details of our schedule at a later date.
