Here's all the stuff you need to know about what's coming up!

Back Home

1. Please be sure to keep up with the calendar...things get changed pretty often at this time of year, and this year it will be more than usual in the fall.

2. Please especially take note of the marching band events...we have lost some home football games, moved Homecoming, etc. That impacts the competition schedule as well. We hope to have the revised schedule firmed up in the next week or two - keep your fingers crossed!

3. Marching Band members - next payment is due by August 21. Since we are short on football games, it would REALLY help us out if you took advantage of the pre-payment discount (see the Marching Band Information for details)...payment in full gets you a $60 discount and helps our cash flow going into Golden Invitational enormously...and any extra that you fundraise after that can apply to indoor guard, indoor percussion, or even next fall's marching band. Please help us out however much you can!

4. We DO still have a Golden Invitational Planning meeting on Monday, August 14 at 6:30 pm...but please CLICK HERE.

5. We need to sell LOTS of ADVERTISEMENTS for the Golden Invitational book...AD FORMS are always available in the band room, or you can print out this one. This is also INCREDIBLY helpful to our cash flow! PLEASE HOLD OFF ON THIS FOR JUST A LITTLE BIT - we may still be selling ads soon, though...

6. Audition Information is now available for All-State Band and All-State Orchestra. These auditions will be on Saturday, September 16; they'll be added to the calendar as soon as we have an actual date. If you want to audition for these ensembles, you MUST begin working NOW on the material! You may need to order an etude book - they are readily available from a variety of sheet music dealers (an online dealer is probably your best bet). If you are serious and want to do really well, you need to get some private lessons from a specialist on your instrument...this is a good idea for ANYONE!!!
