Can you believe we only have one more football game this season?? We are quickly winding down with marching season and moving all of our groups into the indoor season.
Thank you so much to our BPA for hosting a fun-filled Halloween party for our students Saturday night! The fire department showed up only once, so you know it was a good party LOL! Just fyi the fog machine that was used in the band room set the fire alarms off on campus and the fire department had to come up and reset everything. Just to be clear, there was no actual fire or smoke.
I want to congratulate all of the members of the indoor colorguard for making it through the auditions this past week. Please take note that the indoor percussion auditions will take place next Tuesday, November 6th. Anyone interested in joining this group will need to attend the audition.
We will begin the after school rehearsals with the 3 concert bands the week after Thanksgiving. Please keep up with the calendar to prepare for these.
If anyone is interested in participating in any of the honor bands that we put information out for, please see us for information. The William Carey honor band application can be found on the table at the front of the band room. The Troy University SEUS honor band info can be found by clicking HERE. The USM All-South info has not been posted as of yet, but will soon. I encourage everyone to tryout for these extra curricular honor bands!
Speaking of honor bands, the Santa Rosa All-County Honor Band auditions will take place next Monday, November 5th right after school at Milton High School. I will have a schedule with times for everyone this week. Remember, all Symphonic and Concert band students are required to audition for this band.
That is all for now. I hope everyone has an outstanding week!
