Greetings Eagles fans! TWO MORE WEEKS LEFT! We are super close to the very end, and we are already looking forward to having a really nice summer vacation with our friends and families, and also getting ready for the hype of football season! Speaking of, the football schedule is posted. You can find the schedule on the website calendar to use for your convenience.
This week is another busy one! Let’s go over this week:
MONDAY DRESS REHEARSALS: The spring concert is coming up, so we are having one dress rehearsal on Monday after school for the concert bands to go over last details for the concert. Students wear their normal school day clothes. (*a “dress” rehearsal does not mean you “dress out” for the concert. It means that you “address” any technical issues before you put on a live performance. It’s concert lingo - dress rehearsal.)
The dress rehearsal times are:
MONDAY BOOSTER MEETING: On Monday, we have our monthly Booster meeting to discuss happenings in the program. The Booster Board is meeting at 6:30, and then all band Booster parents are invited to attend the general meeting at 7PM today in the band hall.
TUESDAY CONCERT: This year’s annual Spring Concert will be in the Performing Arts Center, and it will start at 7PM. We strongly encourage everyone to stay until the end as we will be having a special guest conductor with the Wind Ensemble that you won’t want to miss.
THURSDAY JAZZ BAND AUDITIONS: If you are a student interested in jazz band, we are having jazz band auditions this Thursday after school.
FRIDAY SAM HOUSTON STATE WIND ENSEMBLE FESTIVAL: The Varsity and Non-Varsity bands are recording this Friday at the SHSU performing arts center. The itinerary of this event is located below.
SATURDAY KICKBALL TOURNAMENT: This Saturday several of our band leadership will be hosting a kickball tournament. More information will be going out on this later. The AMB is having their Kickball Tournament yet again! This is a great way to have fun with fellow band students, and well, play kickball (destroy the green team). May 20th from 1pm to 5pm (not an official time)
