Dear Warrior Band Family ,

 

WOW! Congratulations on the completion of a wonderful marching band season! We started this journey only 4 short months ago and as a community we have worked together to make this a successful fall! Everywhere I go I talk about the wonderful family I am so blessed to be a part of and through thick and thin, good days and bad days, I love each and every one of you. I am so proud of the growth our band has seen over these short months, from the first day of camp to a 95.15 and high music at the Newnan competition, I am impressed at how well you as a band and community took to and welcomed my approach and how we ended the season as a well-oiled machine.

 

A huge thank you goes out to each of you as a band community for sticking with our football team through 3rd round playoffs. To say “we’re sending a pep band of 200+ people” is an honor only a small percentage of bands in the country can say; it shows the dedication and commitment we have towards one another. Bravo.

 

These next few weeks are going to be busy as we head into December, here’s a heads up:

 

·         Saturday, 12.3 – Kennesaw Santa Parade (Mandatory)

o   A schedule will be sent out this week outlining the details for the parade. The bandroom will be open by 10:00 am, your report time at Kennesaw First Baptist Church will be 11:00. We will be finished with the parade approximately at noon, and the bandroom will be open afterwards to return your uniform. We will rehearse the parade tune briefly in class.

§  If you are taking the ACT Saturday morning, send me an email so I am aware of your absence.

·         Tuesday, 12.6 – Awtrey Middle School Performance (Optional)

o   For anyone interested, we are going to perform Sleigh Ride (the easy version) with the Awtrey Middle 8th grade band on their winter concert. Call time in uniform will be at 5:45, we will walk over to AMS, blow the house down, and be done in time for dinner (most likely around 7:30). Sign up sheets will go up Monday and we will rehearse the piece in class.

·         Saturday, 12.10 –District Honor Band Auditions

o   If you signed up for All State/Honor Band, your audition time will be posted on the front whiteboard early this week.

·         Tuesday, 12.13 – North Cobb Band Winter Concert (Mandatory)

o   All four bands will perform their annual Winter Concert at BARBER MIDDLE SCHOOL at 7:00 pm.

§  Seating will most likely be limited so be sure to arrive early. Call time for students will be 6:30 at BMS.

·         Saturday, 12.17 – Shop with a Warrior Performance

Additional dates to be aware of:

 

·         Thursday, 12.1 – 1st Winterguard rehearsal

·         Tuesday, 12.6 – North Cobb Orchestra/Barber MS Band Concert

o   Best wishes to those that are involved with the NC Orchestra & Barber Band

·         Thursday, 12.8 Barber Band goes to Alabama

o   If you’ve got any friends/relatives in the Barber band, wish them luck! They will represent our cluster VERY well at the University of Alabama honor band clinic.

 

Love ya lots.
