West Georgia Winds:
We are honored to have our campus host the first season of the brand new West Georgia Winds! This is an audition based ensemble for any 6th-8th grader in the state that rehearses once a week at the CHS band room and performs concerts at the Mabry Arts Center. Students will play challenging and fun music with band members from across our area and will get to play under the baton of Dr. Josh Byrd, director of bands at the University of West Georgia! This is a tremendous opportunity for our band students and I encourage those that are interested to apply at http://www.westgawinds.com
The next installment of $50 is due on the 28th of January. All accounts should be paid up to $150 in total by that date. Please begin sending in money for all students and chaperones at your earliest convenience.
We will have our next chair test on Thursday, January 20th during class. 7th grade will play one as many major and minor scales as they can in 1 minute as well as their etude that was handed out in class. 8th grade will play as many major and minor scales as they can in 2 minutes as well as their etude that was handed out in class.
A copy of the etude as well as a recording can be found in the following Google Drive folder:
