Tuesday – Percussion rehearsal – final preparations for the drum show. Keep pushing. This is going be great!
Wednesday – Lettering points are due to Dr. Thomas or Mr. Hupe before class is out. After class the spreadsheet will be handed off to the office so they can complete their work and preparations for our Banquet.
Thursday – Final Band Concert of the year. The Jazz Bands will start us off. Dress is “nice casual.” No jeans, no tennis shoes. Spring colors are the order of the day. 🙂 The concert will begin at 7:00p and will last about an hour and a half. Call time for the performers is 6:30p.
Several students got together and listened to music and mulled over numerous thoughts and ideas and a final selection has been made. Next year’s marching band show has been selected. It is the music of the rock group Queen. Here is a link to the website allowing download of the audio file. Music parts will be tweaked to add or adapt as needed. https://msconcepts.com/products/queen-hybrid-gr-3
