Posted on

This is a big week for members of Millennium Bands!  See below for details!

  • Islands of Adventure Field Trip forms & monies due – Wednesday, April 10, all interested band students

Islands-of-Adventure-Orlando-Florida-United-States

This is a hard deadline, as tickets will be ordered from Universal on Friday, April 12.  Students not having their materials turned in cannot be included on the trip!

  • Florida Bandmasters Association Music Performance Assessment, Thursday, April 11, 4:30PM, Lake Mary High School, WIND ENSEMBLE students

This is a required performance for members of the Wind Ensemble.  It is very much like an FCAT for band in that we are rated by a panel of adjudicators.  We will be assessed on our stage performance as well as our performance of two pieces we’ve never seen before, a process known as sight reading.  Our itinerary for the day has changed slightly form the last publishing, so see below for changes!
