Annual Band BBQ – THANK YOU!
The BBQ on Friday was a terrific family affair! Thank you to all of the parents who devoted time to volunteering and made it such a successful day! We were entertained by performances by our students but also had a special performance by the Junior High Jazz Band. Ms. Menendez, thank you so much for your support of all of our band kids! Your students sounded fantastic and it was a treat to hear them perform at our BBQ!
Wind Ensemble with Presidio Brass
Our Wind Ensemble students teamed up with members of the Bowdon HS concert band to accompany the Presidio Brass in an arrangement of the Theme from Jurassic Park. It was an entertaining evening of music from broadway musicals. It was brass quintet with a twist of theater. Thank you to all of the students who were able to participate. The members of Presidio Brass were very complimentary of your performance! Bravo!
Our Spring Concert is on Monday, May 6 at 7:00PM. Please do not arrive until 6:30PM. There is an elementary school kindergarten performance from 5:30PM-6:15PM right before our concert. The end of the year is busy for everyone and we are doing our best to share our wonderful facilities. Students need to be in the MAC at 6:40PM in their concert attire. Concert starts at 7:00PM.
We will still set up the stage after school with chairs, stands, and percussion equipment. Students receive a portion of their concert grade for assisting with set-up or clean-up.
Senior Signing Day
On Tuesday, May 7 at 2:30PM in the band room we will recognize our seniors who have made a commitment to continue with participation in music after high school- this includes marching band and colorguard. We are excited to celebrate their decisions with their parents and band family. There will be a light reception to follow the ceremony. Seniors who are continuing should fill out this form with the appropriate information to be recognized during the ceremony.
Band Prom is on Saturday, May 11th from 7:00PM – 11:00PM in the band room. This is a fun night for the band students to spend time together before the break. There will be music, dancing, and snacks. Please see the following link to sign up to chaperone and/or bring snacks or drinks.
We are still in need for the following volunteers:
- Chaperones from 9pm – 11pm
- Cheese dips in crock pots
- $10 donations (to help offset the cost of CFA nugget trays, and other entree items needed if we don’t have volunteers)
- Drinks – sodas, punch, juice
- Fruit Trays
- Sandwich trays
- Bags of Chips
Each section has been asked to decorate a table with this year’s Country Western theme.
