Weekly Schedule – Week of 10/7
Greetings from the Band Office.
Here is the schedule for the week starting with County Band Night at Thomas Dale HS on Monday October 7. Please note that the weather is not looking favorable for outside events Monday night. The Directors will make a decision by Noon on Monday as to whether to cancel the event. If we do cancel, we will reschedule for the exact same schedule the following Monday (10/14).
Please note also that the kids have asked to add more competitions to our schedule. Since there are no more weekends this year that we could have scheduled performances, I offered to take them to Blue Stone for their competition the same day as Hanover. This makes for a long day, but the kids get to perform, and they get the chance to enjoy each other’s company. Students should consider bringing homework and other wholesome activities to keep themselves busy because there is a long bus ride in store for them. If all goes well with October 12th, we will most likely add the Powhatan competition to October 26th.
