Our concert this past Tuesday was unbelievable! The students sure do know how to show off! I am proud of how they come into class daily and demonstrate their understanding that becoming the best version of ourselves takes hard work. It also takes dedication and mental toughness in which the exhibit in class. I can hear and see the students growing in so many ways and am so thankful that they continue allowing me to push them to where I know they can go! Thank you for attending the concert and I hope that everyone enjoyed it.
UGA MidFest Honor Band:
Seven of our 8th grade students traveled to Athens, Georgia to participate in the UGA MidFest Honor Band. The students auditioned well and had a great time playing beside new friends. They learned from the guest conductors and saw multiple performances including the University of Georgia’s Wind Symphony. Enjoy some photos in front of the school of music. Congratulations!
The next installment of $50 for the Carowinds trip is due this Friday. On Friday all students and chaperones should have $100 paid towards their trip. You may pay with cash, check (written out to CJHS BAND) or online here —-> Revtrak Online System
Tomorrow evening I will post a final roster of all of those attending the trip before sending a check to the travel company to secure our spots. Please stay tuned for that roster tomorrow and make sure that all is correct.
There will be NO after school rehearsals this week. Jazz Band will rehearse on Friday morning at 7:30 AM as usual and I will work with our students who are auditioning for All State individually after school. If your student is auditioning for All State please contact me so that we can pick a day this week to work on some sight reading and the second etude.
Have a wonderful evening!
