Marching Band Update

We have set up some music sectional dates. Please let your child know.  Advise them to clear their schedules for their rehearsal time. These will take place at the HS – meet in the band room.
July 6 – Flutes/Clarinets 10:00am-11:30amJuly 12 – Alto Saxophones/Mellophones/Trumpets 10:00am-11:30amJuly 13 – Trombones/Baritones/Tubas/Bari Sax/Tenor Sax/Bass Clarinets 10:00-11:30am
Also, the Coast Guard Parade was not on the initial schedule that was sent out, because they hadn’t made the decision on the parade at the time.  As you may have heard, the parade is happening and as usual, we will be participating. The Coast Guard Festival makes a donation to our band based on the number of participants, so we need all of our members present.  If you’ll be out of town on vacation, or have another absolutely unavoidable conflict, please let me know.  The call time for the band students in uniform is 9:30am on Saturday, August 7.  We will bus over from the HS around 10:00am. The parade is at 11:45am.  We will have plenty of water for the students.  The band will be back to school between 1:15-1:30, so you will not be able to watch the entire parade, then pick up your child.  You will be very late.  Make sure you or someone else can pick up your child at the HS by 1:30pm after the parade.  I will remind you of this information before the parade, but please add August 7 to your calendar.
