First and foremost, THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR VETERANS AND ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY AND FAMILIES FOR ALL THAT YOU HAVE DONE, ARE DOING, AND WILL DO TO ALLOW US TO FREELY DO WHAT WE DO EVERYDAY!! This is the land of the free because it is the home of the brave! We will never forget!
Unfortunately the Veterans Day parade had to be cancelled because of the rain, however the ceremony still took place in the MHS auditorium today. Thank you and good job to Sydney Mosley and Jordan Bishop for a moving performance of Taps at the end of the ceremony.
If you have not done so, please sign up for an excursion option for the band trip. CLICK HERE and read over the information and fill out the form. Sign-up must be completed by this Friday
I encourage all to come out and look through and hopefully buy music this Tuesday at the band room from 3pm-7pm. Beethoven & Co will be here with a ton of music written for your instrument and most combination of ensembles you can think of. This is your opportunity to buy a piece if you are interested in performing in the FBA solo & ensemble.
The Troy SEUS and USM All-South Honor Band info has been released. Both of these are online. USM is the only one that requires a taped audition to be submitted upon application. If you need help with this recording, please let us know and we will record you before the Christmas break. You will still need to submit it on your own. Please click the following links for more information:
Troy SEUS - CLICK HERE - Due Nov. 26th
USM All-South - CLICK HERE - Due Jan. 9th
