Winter Marching Band Performance!

The LHHS Wildcat Band will be hosting a Winter Marching Band Performance on Thursday, 12/3 at 6:30pm!


The Marching Band will be performing our 2020 show along with many other songs from our Fall season.

We are excited to provide this in-person performance opportunity for our fans! Our Band students have worked hard through all of the challenges involved with the Fall semester and we are so proud of their progress!

Similar to Football Games, all safety protocols remain in place:

· Masks are required

· All fans must self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms prior to entering

· Every other row will remain empty. Please do not sit on rows that are marked with Caution tape

· Per UIL rules, we must maintain no more than 50% Stadium Capacity

· You may ONLY sit with members of your household

Wristbands will be required and must be checked upon entry. Each Marching Band student will be given 4 wristbands on Tuesday morning to distribute to friends and family as needed.

Please note: this performance will only involve members of our Marching Band and this will take the place of our traditional Winter Concert event in December. We are also planning a virtual concert event for early in the Spring semester (late January/early February) that will involve ALL LHHS Band students regardless of their learning model.

We hope you will join us on Thursday, December 3rd at 6:30pm!

PLAYOFFS!

Richardson ISD IS allowing Marching Bands to travel to Playoff Football games! We need ALL Marching Band families to fill in a new Opt-In form HERE: https://forms.gle/stviHxY7u2WPm7RL6

THERE ARE STILL 50 MARCHING BAND MEMBERS WHO HAVE NOT FILLED THIS OUT!

There are two options for transportation:

Students will either ride an RISD bus with the band OR can be driven by a parent.

NO STUDENT IS ALLOWED TO DRIVE THEMSELVES!

Marching rehearsals will occur on Thursday-Friday, December 10-11, 7:30AM to 8:15AM. Depending on what we perform at the game, a similar schedule will probably apply the following week if we advance.

Playoff Volunteers needed!

Attention Parents! Want to get in free to the Playoff football game and help support the band? If you do, then we would love for you to volunteer to be a Band Chaperone!

Please go to the following website: https://risd.voly.org/ and fill out the RISD Volunteer forms.

We do not know specifics for the game yet, but once we do they will be updated on the Sign-Up Genius.

Sign-Up Genius to volunteer:https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B094EA5A92EA20-lhhs

All-Region Auditions

All students who are auditioning for the TMEA All-Region process will receive login information to access Music First, a web-based recording program.


The window for students to record the Region cuts is 10am on Saturday, 12/5 until 11:59pm on Wednesday, 12/9. You can record any combination of etudes in a sitting and revisit recordings after finishing them.

The biggest challenge in this process is if a student attempts to re-record an Etude, the previous recording will automatically be deleted! You may not record multiple takes of the same Etude and go through them to find the best one. Your LAST take will always be the recording stored. You can attempt recording as few or as many times as you want, but all recordings must be in BEFORE 11:59pm on Wednesday.


Each student should have now paid LHABC their $16 entry fee.

COVID updates

Please make sure you are continuing to follow social-distancing protocols at all times! We have had more issues with students not following the 6-foot rule, especially when we are transitioning from outdoors to indoors and vice-versa.

We are seeing an increase campus-wide in quarantining and positive cases. Let’s all do our part!!

REMINDERS:

Early Morning arrival of Marching Band students on a Rehearsal day: All materials NOT needed for rehearsal must be placed in lockers (Brass/Color Guard), on your assigned spot in the Band Hall (Woodwinds) or spaced out in the entryway between the Band Hall and Percussion Room (Percussion).

All students will be released from morning rehearsals at 8:15am and will return to the Band Hall. Only F2F students will be allowed back in the building and locker rooms (1 at a time – please move quickly)

From there, students will be dismissed to Athletic Locker Rooms (H-Building: Boys and Girls PE Locker Rooms). If you are using the Athletic Locker Rooms, masks must be worn at all times unless showering. You will need to move quickly through the Locker Room as you’re getting ready for the day – no congregating! If you are not using the Athletic Locker Rooms, you may not walk through any part of the building unless you are heading to the Hub or Auditorium after 8:30am.

Once you are dressed for school, ONLY 1st period Band students will be allowed to remain in the Band Hall and must be on their assigned spot with all materials needed for class. Non 1st-period Band students will need to follow the School Entry plan and remain in the Auditorium or Hub after dressing.


Band Lockers are assigned and will be used only for band materials.

Percussion: On days with morning rehearsal, Percussion will continue to rehearse 8:20-9:20 for 1st period. On Mondays and Wednesdays, virtual students will be let out early in order to get home for the rest of their virtual school day.
