Greetings everyone! One more week until winter break! We've finally made it! It's been a super long semester a football games, practices, marching band competition, and so much more. But we are finally here at the end, and I think I speak for mostly everyone that the break coming up will be well deserved.
Here are a few announcements for this week, with information about Disney trip meetings if you missed it, winter band concert information, jazz band concert, and more.
Last weekend on Friday and Saturday, selected members of the Atascocita High School band who auditioned and made the region band performed and rehearsed with some of the best students in the region as well as best conductors in our country. It was a marvelous concert, and we couldn't be more proud of our band students who represented our school so well.
MONDAY DRESS REHEARSAL: in fine arts, a dress rehearsal is usually the last and final rehearsal before a big performance. The word dress means to address any final nuances of music, and it is often times confused with clothing. For today's dress rehearsal, it is just our last big rehearsal before the performance.
Rehearsal times are:
Rehearsals are in the auditorium.
TUESDAY CONCERT: this year's annual winter band concert will be on Tuesday December 13th at 7:00 p.m. in the high school auditorium. All band students should be in the band hall no later than 6:00 p.m. All four bands will perform, and all bands will observe and support all performing ensembles until the concert is over. We anticipate that the concert will be an hour. 6:00pm is band student call time. Concert Band is going to start at 6pm on stage, and we will let the other bands know where their warmup areas are.
Please see last week's update for concert attire. The students have options this time.
WEDNESDAY JAZZ BAND CONCERT: this year's annual winter jazz band concert will be on Wednesday December 14th at 7:00 p.m. in the high school auditorium. The jazz band has been working super hard on an excellent program that we know you will all enjoy. Please come support them.
Pro tip: don’t exempt band final. You will have wasted an exemption. That’s all we will say about that.
That’s all for now. We will have more updates out on the BAND app soon. We are looking forward to seeing everyone for our concerts this week!
