Cookie Dough and Jazz Orchestra Opportunities

Good evening,

Tomorrow is the last possible day to turn in cookie dough. Thank you so much for your efforts and I will speak with the kids next week to announce the winners of our prizes. A delivery date will be announced once it has been given to me.

Jazz Orchestra Opportunity:

The Carrollton Jazz Orchestra is opening up their next two rehearsals to the students!

Read below for a message from Terry Lowry:

Dear all,

We are gearing our October 18 and 25 rehearsals toward jazz education/appreciation. I’ll give introductions to the music and have handouts to help the students engage as they listen.  We’ll rehearse at the Amp from 3-5 on both days.  I hope to have a great turn out.  You need not limit the invitation to your jazz band members.  Invite everyone and maybe some non-jazz kids will be converted!  Parents are welcome, as well.

Tell your students to bring their instruments.  We’ll close the rehearsal with a tune the students can play with the CJO.  I hope you come and bring your instruments, too.  It will be a blast!

-Terry Lowry

I hope that some of our students participate the next two Sundays! I look forward to starting up our own jazz band in November. More information to come soon!

Upcoming Schedule:

  • October 22nd Trojan Band Game (Playoffs)
  • October 29th Trojan Band Game (Championship)

I hope that you all have a great Friday tomorrow and a wonderful weekend.
