Weekly Update 9.10.18

Big Red Band!

Hope you had a great weekend!  Thank you so much to LOTS of members that showed up for prop assembly this last Saturday – WOW!

We have a busy week ahead…as always, please refer to the band website calendar for your days and times.

This week we have a special guest clinician, Mr. Wayne Dillon.  He is a well known brass instructor, DCI and BOA judge, and is in high demand around the WORLD working with programs like ours.  We are very lucky to have Mr. Dillon with us all day Monday-Wednesday.  Let’s demonstrate the best attendance and rehearsal etiquette for Mr. Dillon and simply as a part of us getting better each week.

With Mr. Dillon in, the schedule for the week is as follows:

Monday 9/10:

Brass Masterclasses

FULL Band Rehearsal 5:30-8:00pm

Tuesday 9/11:

Woodwind Masterclasses

FULL Band Rehearsal 5:30-8:00pm

Wednesday 9/12:

FULL Band Rehearsal 3:30-6:30pm

Thursday 9/13:

Football Game vs. North Shore (where Mr. Falcon went to HS)…stay tuned for itinerary.  We will be full out with marching uniform, no more summer uniform wear.  Please be sure you have long black socks!

Friday 9/14:

NO REHEARSAL…enjoy the weekend with nothing on the calendar…the following week will be HUGE…BOA McALLEN WEEK!!!!

This week your check is going to be your cubbies!  It must have the correct things in it (and the incorrect things removed).  We will be passing out marching shoes in class and making sure everyone has a marching hat.

LAST THING – with props coming out this week to practice with, we must have people show up earlier to assemble and set up, and plan to stay shortly after rehearsal to tear down and put up correctly in the band hall.

As always, communicate everything.  Attendance and communication keeps getting better…we cannot be what we want to be without YOU there…or at least letting us know what is going on!

Thanks so much, family.  Let’s have a great week!
