Band Weekly Update

Good afternoon,

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you all had a wonderful Spring Break and are excited to come back tomorrow.  We have a lot going on this week!  Sectionals are updated on the calendar and can be found on the band website: www.lhabc.org/calendar

Tuesday after school:

Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble will have our Side-by-Side rehearsal with the top bands from LHJH and FMJH!  4:45-6:15 on stage and in the LHHS Band Hall. I hear there will be pizza after….

Wednesday night:

Come see both of the LH Winterguards at the RISD Winterguard Showcase! The show starts at 7pm at Richardson HS and should last around an hour. Admission is FREE!

Thursday:

We are hosting the Berkner and LH cluster junior high bands during the school day for their Pre-UIL and then our high school bands are performing immediately after school for our Pre-UIL. It’s possible that the Wind Ensemble will have to play before school ends!  I will have an update on the HS band performance times tomorrow and will send a more detailed schedule.

Dress for pre-UIL will be full tuxedo and formal dress (just like the Winter Concert).  Unless someone will be bringing your clothes immediately after school, please plan to bring everything you need to school on Thursday!

Friday:

Mr. Brian Merrill will be here for our band classes as a guest clinician.  You can read more about Mr. Merrill here: http://mansfieldwindsymphony.org/about

Spring Trip payment #3 is also DUE this Friday!  You can pay on Charms or by check (made out to LHABC and dropped off in the Band Hall safe). However you make the payment, please make sure to notate your student’s name and “Spring Trip payment”

Have a great first week back!
