North Cobb High School Band 2016-2017



Warrior band family,

 

I hope your new year is off to a wonderful start! Ours certainly is! The concert bands are all off to a terrific start as they prepare for Large Group Performance Evaluation in March, we have a great group of clinicians, section coaches, and professors coming in to help each band prepare.

 

Congratulations to our Winterguard for placing 1st at the East Coweta competition this past Saturday! Their show “All Through The Night” is a lovely visual representation of Vincent van Gogh’s famous “Starry Night” painting. They are currently seated 1st in their classification and will look to keep progressing as they move on to their next competition at Harrison HS on February 11th.

 

Upcoming dates in the month of February are:

 

·         2/4 – Symphonic Camp

o   Required of all concert band students, $35 due to the payment box

o   Lasagna meal provided by Summit Church

 

·         2/10-11 High School Honor Band

o   @ Hillgrove HS

 

·         2/11 Winterguard at Harrison HS

 

·         2/18 Winterguard competiton at River Ridge

 

·         2/20-24 February Break

 

An additional organization the NCHS Band is collaborating with is United Sound.  United Sound is a school-based instrumental music club for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities and their typical peers. Dedicated to promoting social involvement through shared ensemble performance experience, United Sound joins students with and without disabilities to learn and perform in the band or orchestra together. A select group of students work together with students with these students once a week (Wednesdays) for an hour. The program has been wonderful to watch and both the new musicians as well as the band tutors are making terrific progress!!

Also, for students interested in the 2017 MB leadership team, we will have our first meeting of the semester tomorrow, (Monday 1/30 at 3:45). If you can’t make that meeting, don’t worry, they will be held once a month through May.

 

We have added to the calendar an 8th grade night for all incoming students interested in the NCHS Band. Thursday, February 9th at 7:00 pm in the band room. Our incredible parents from 8th grade night have volunteered to contact every 8th grader we have on the roster from the evening to get the word out. If you personally know any rising freshman involved, encourage them to join and get more information!

 

Looking forward to a great semester!

 

Go North Cobb Band!
