This is a reminder that we have a concert that begins at 6pm this Thursday. This will be the only chance for most parents and family members to hear the orchestras perform their contest pieces as the festival is held during the day.

The CONCERT ORCHESTRA has a call time of 5:45pm on stage. The Philharmonic and Symphony Orchestras need to be in the taped off section of the audience by 5:55pm.

The concert order will be:

Pictures from Washington Trip

Good morning! I hope you recovered easily from our long journey to/from DC last week.

Wanted to provide you with an opportunity to get professional quality pictures from our trip. Throughout the trip, you probably noticed Jeremy Flowers, father of Logan, taking pictures non-stop. You now have the opportunity to purchase a DVD of all of the pictures, or individual pictures printed in professional quality.

If you are interested, please download the attached document, fill it out, and return it with the correct amount of money to the lock boxes in the instrumental/vocal classrooms.

This needs to be done by THIS Thursday, April 2nd.

Jeremy will be at the Band/Orchestra Concert that evening if you have further questions.

In addition, our videographer, Kegun Selley, will be selling his DVD soon. More info to follow.

Titan Pride Update

7:00 Band Concert begins
7:35 Band Concert ends/Parent meeting for ALL students/parents begins

NOTE: Attendance by students and parents at the fundraiser meeting is CRUCIAL to the success of the fundraiser. This is why I scheduled it on a night where we are all already at school for the concert. For every parent in attendance, the band will be given $5 (up to $500), so thank you in advance for making this evening a priority.

Wednesday, April 8th is State Large Ensemble Contest for the Concert Band. Performance time is 3:00pm. This means students MUST bring their concert uniform to school with them on Wednesday, April 8th. They can hang it up in the band room before school.

Friday, April 11th is State Large Ensemble Contest for the Symphonic Band. Performance time is 3:30pm. This means students MUST bring their concert uniform to school with them on Friday, April 11th. They can hang it up in the band room before school.

Congrats to these students -they have worked really hard! Continue reading

Volunteers Needed

District music contest will be here in 2 short weeks and there are still a number of volunteer positions to be filled. There are 9 open spots on Friday, March 6th and about 30 open spots on Saturday, March 7th.

The kids probably will not receive their performance times until next week. If you happen to volunteer during the time your child performs, I will arrange the schedule so that you can still hear them perform. I compare the performance times for each child to the times that the parents have volunteered. If there is a conflict, then I will either assign you to your child’s room or arrange for you to switch with another parent when it is time for them to perform.

Student volunteers will also be needed on Friday and Saturday. Student sign-up sheets will be posted outside the choir room later this week. Also, we still need individuals to volunteer to assist with the Taste of Lee’s Summit on the evening of Saturday, March 7th. Please sign up in Charms if you are able to assist with this wonderful event that raises so much money for the school district and music program.
