Next Week’s Deadlines

We need to know by early next week if you child is interested in the following events….

Middle School Solo/Ensemble

Groups or individuals get assigned a time on December 4, 2010 at Reeths-Puffer Intermediate School. They perform a solo or ensemble piece that either Mr. G or Mr. T have approved for a judge and receive comments, tips and a rating. This is a great even to go to! There is a fee of $10 for a solo, $12 for a piano solo and various amounts for ensemble depending on the size. Accompanists are required for solos and they should be compensated financially. Please make sure the directors know of your intentions for S/E early next week.

District Honors Band
For 7th and 8th grade at Sparta High School on January 7 and 8, 2011. By director’s recommendation. Small fee to join – for the best players on our side of the state. See a director if you’d like to be nominated. No audition required.

All-State Band
HIGHLY selective ensemble. Performs before thousands in DeVos Hall in Grand Rapids in January (1/20-1/22). Auditions are at Sparta High School on 10/30 and 10/31. Private lessons are a MUST – we’ve only had 1 to 3 students go per year 7-12 and that’s a lot for a school our size. Please talk to a director if this may be for you.
