Chamber Music Festival Week

Good evening!

Hopefully everyone had a restful weekend and enjoyed no school today.

Sectionals for this week are all accurate on the calendar – please double check with the 4-day week that you know what’s coming up! Some things are different due to the shortened week.

Google assignments were due over the weekend for the Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band and Concert Band. It was discussed early last week in band classes and students were given time in class on Friday to complete it. Please encourage them to get it done!

The 2nd installment of the Spring Trip fee should be turned in to the safe in the Band Hall if it has not been. Payment due dates are on the band calendar. If there is a delay in payment or you are on a modified payment schedule, please confirm with a director via e-mail. Thank you!

The RISD Chamber Music Festival is THIS Saturday at LHHS! Not only are almost all of our band students performing, but they also work the contest as the hosts for the entire district. All students received their performance times last week and will have the opportunity to sign up for a job that doesn’t conflict with their performances. A separate e-mail will go out with final reminders of the event once all students have signed up for jobs. A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone in the LHABC and Band program that help make this event successful for band kids throughout RISD.

Basic Chamber Music Festival reminders:

  • Please dress up for the event (no blue jeans, tennis shoes, shorts, flip flops, etc). You are not only representing yourself but also LHHS
  • Warmup is in the Student Center
  • Concessions are available in the Cafeteria
  • Arrive early enough to get a good warmup and be to your room early in case they are ahead of schedule

$40 accompanist fees for Chamber Music Festival are past due to the safe in the Band Hall! Checks can be made out to LHABC. All students who are playing a solo at this Saturday’s Chamber Music Festival owe this fee – it covers two rehearsals and the performance.

Good luck to our Winter Guards as they compete at Lakeview Centennial this Friday in their 2nd NTCA competition of the season. If you’re interested in attending, check http://www.ntca-online.com for more information. JV Guard performs at 7:13pm and Varsity Guard performs at 9:25pm.

Only 3 weeks until Spring Break!
