A Huge Thankyou !!!

Hello Band Parents,

We just wanted to thank you all for coming out and enjoying some of the wonderful music your kids have worked so hard to perfect. We had a record turnout of people here to watch and I believe all three grade levels had there finest performance of each of there pieces.

We hope you took notice of the three levels of bands and could hear a difference in each grade level. As your child grows in the program so does the difficulty and performance level. This is one of the reasons band kids are the most mature, independent and responsible students in the school. It is there dedication to the band and the craft of learning an instrument that helps them grow and thrive.

We want to wish you all a happy and blessed holiday season, and we look forward to another awesome semester next year.

Christmas Concert Help

Hello all,

I would like ask for some help next Monday before and during the concert if there is anyone willing to give of their time.

At 3pm I will need a setup crew at the Mabry Arts Center to help stage equipment and instruments.

At 6:30pm Id like some volunteers to help pass out programs, be backstage monitors and also assist In the warmup room as a monitor.

Please email me ASAP if can volunteer for any or all of these positions. It always takes a village to pull these things off.

Thanks all.
