West Georgia Winds/7th Grade Placement Auditions/March 1st Upcoming Concert

Good afternoon,

I am excited that we all get a week of rest and rejuvenation and I hope that everyone is enjoying that time.

West Georgia Winds

Today is the last day to sign up for West Georgia Winds. This is an honor band group that meets on Sundays from 2-4 and performs under the baton of Dr. Josh Byrd, Director of bands at the University of West Georgia! Please visit http://www.westgawinds.com to view the schedule and click on this Google Form to sign up for an audition! Our students will have great success at their audition and are prepared to earn a spot in the ensemble.

7th Grade Placement Auditions

Our 7th graders will audition on March 10th during class for their ensemble placements for next year. Please ensure that they take this audition seriously and that they are practicing over break leading into that audition. They will earn a spot in either our Concert Band, Symphonic Band, or Wind Ensemble next year. The difference in each band increasing in commitment, speed of pace, and difficulty. This allows for our students to get more individualized attention and for me to cater my teaching more effectively. Please let me know if you have any questions and I would be happy to answer them.

Pre LGPE Concert

Our next concert is at the Mabry Arts Center on Tuesday, March 1st. Report time is 5:00 pm for all students. 7th grade will perform at 6:00 PM and 8th grade will perform at 6:30 PM. We are having a judges panel attend to give us feedback leading into our big LGPE performance at the Carroll County Performing Arts Center on March 17th and 18th.

LGPE Dates and Times

The LGPE dates have been announced and should be absolutely finalized this week. I feel confident that our times will not change between now and the finalized schedule, so we can begin preparing.

7th grade: March 17th @4 PM

8th grade: March 18th @4:30 PM

An itinerary of those performance days will be handed out when we get back from break. Please mark your calendar and make sure that we fill up the Carroll County Performing Arts Center those nights to support our students! They have been working very hard on this music.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the weeks ahead.
