Weekly Schedule – Week of 10/6
Greetings from the Band Office,
Remember that we have one more performance to finish off our busiest weekend of the year. (That’s right… Monday is part of the weekend this week. 🙂 ) Tomorrow night is County Band Night at Thomas Dale High School. All ten county high school Marching Bands will perform our shows in close succession. There are NO scheduled performance times. We just run from one Band to the next. We are fourth in the line-up. The event is free and open to the public but remember that Bands agree to host this event so that they can use it as a fund raiser, so bring money and support them.
So after the busiest weekend of the year for us, we follow it up with a more relaxed weekend. The football team is playing away this Friday, so we will have Friday off. Spend some family time and get some homework done.
Here’s the schedule:
Tue 10/7 2:15-4:35 – Full TMB
Wed 10/8 2:15-3:35 – Woodwinds/Percussion Sectional
