High School Marching Band
July 22-26 at Grand Valley State University
The buses had quite a bit of trouble getting out of the Kentwood parking lot. Looks like it’s going to be even later. Sorry for the inconvenience – looking more like maybe 11:40.
Band room opens at 5pm
Report to the admin office at 6pm.
We will go from there to play the School Song at the dinner.
Pre-game as usual featuring American Pride (with folios and lyres!)
Don’t forget the 8 count “gate” move!
Sitting in the end zone this week.
Halftime – just movement number one then 4 count turn and march to the back. Parade rest during ceremony followed by School Song.
Post-game – Full show – standing and playing the very end of Star Trek where we stopped this morning.
Change and go to bed. See you there – make sure you look over your music before this evening – it can be even better!
Here are the important things you need to know regarding marching band…
1) Please make sure Star Trek is fully memorized for Friday – in the key of C (at the end…)
2) Call time on Friday is 6pm at the MS in front of the administration doors. Don’t be late. Do not park in that lot, however.
3) Our competition on September 29 has been canceled by Wyoming. We have elected to go to a morning show on October 13th in Grandville and we need EVERYONE! Please make sure this form (download here) comes back ASAP. Deadline – Monday.
