Nationals Video

Here’s the video that we will be submitting to USBands for the “Nationals” Competition:

Awards Ceremony

You can watch the the Awards Ceremony for “States” — simply need to go to and the awards will be posted on the Home page at 7pm on Saturday night. You do not need an account to view, however if you want to watch the other bands you can get a monthly subscription.

Accounts with a Past Balance

I have just re-emailed everyone with a past balance.

I ask that you PLEASE — at minimum — sign the contract and bring it in (or email it to me) by the next practice. I also ask that you make one payment, but according to the contract, the first payemnt is due December 1. BUT — I MUST have your contract next week!

All Accounts

This season — we have reduced the fund raising commitment to $120 per student. Please — if you can make that payment now — it will help us to pay the staff and vendors and designers NOW! Thank you…

Make a Credit Card payment now:

Or bring a payment to practice next Thursday.

Looking ahead — November 5

Next Week will be the final rehearsal and recording session.
