Congratulations to the Millennium students who participated in the Stetson Honors Chamber Music Festival on Saturday, September 28. The festival was put on by members of Stetson University’s chapter of the Collegiate National Association of Music Education. Participating students from Central Florida middle schools received, rehearsed, and performed music in both small and large ensemble settings under the direction of the university’s Music Education majors. Kudos go out to all of the students who gave up a day of their weekend to become better musicians! Thank you of your leadership!!!
Congratulations to the members of the Millennium Band that participated in Middle School Night on Friday, September 26! The students waited out the rain to join members of the Sanford & Markham Woods MS Bands and march with the Pride of the Tribe of Seminole HS. Special thanks go out to Mr. Malcolm, Ms. Newhouse, the Seminole Band Parents, and all of the Seminole students for their kindness and compassion as hosts for all of the middle school students! Our kids had a great time!
Beginning Band members are currently learning about the different instruments offered in band. Below is a YouTube playlist that features various performances of the instruments from which they may choose. Enjoy!
- Reminder: Instrument Testing for beginners will occur at the New Parent Meeting, Tuesday, Aug. 19, 6:30PM in Millennium Hall!!!
Congratulations, Kristen Lichtenthal!!! The Millennium Band Alum served as one of the Drum Majors for the Blue Devils Drum & Bugle Corps as they won the Drum Corps International World Championships on Saturday night (August 9). The group won its 16th championship in record-breaking fashion, beating the previous mark by half a point!
In her time as a musician, Kristen has parlayed her love of music into playing bassoon, becoming a percussionist (Infinity Percussion Ensemble), and majoring in music education at the University of Central Florida.
