Dear Millennium Band Family,

The time has come for our Winter Concert Performances!  I am very pleased to say that, since my “flu sabbatical”, students have worked really hard in preparation for their performances.  I want to give special kudos to the Beginning Band!  They have focused so well in the few days I have seen them, I am inviting all of the beginners to perform, regardless of how many stickers they have earned! (And, if you earned stickers, don’t worry…they are worth points towards your grade!) So, I am looking forward to this week’s events, and I hope you will join us to celebrate these students’ achievements!!!

Please see the information below for information pertinent to this week’s performances:

Monday, December 1

Beginning Band Rehearsal, 4-6PM

  • Students report to the band room after dismissal.
  • Students should have their rides ready to pick them up at 6PM when rehearsal dismisses.
  • No special uniforms are needed for this rehearsal.
  • Attendance at the rehearsal is mandatory for those who want to perform on the concert.
  • The rehearsal is worth 100 points towards the student’s grade, while the performance is worth 200 points.  If students do not participate, it will be very difficult to make up these points.
