MP Band – Information for 16 – 21 December

Good Afternoon All,


Hope you are well.  Please see information below:

MPHS WIND ENSEMBLE WINTER CONCERT:  I have been presented with a wonderful opportunity to attend a conference in Chicago Dec 18th – Dec 21st.  Because of this, an adjustment to our concert date has had to be made.  The concert has been moved to December 16th (Monday).  Start time for this concert will be 7:00 p.m.  Call time will be 5:45 p.m. for all HS students.  Concert attire is the formal attire that should have been acquired or purchased through the band (please see concert band handbook /syllabus that was sent home at the beginning of the semester for information).  Those who have purchased attire should receive their items this week.

Because of this change in the concert date, I have had to adjust our dress rehearsal dates that were originally scheduled.  Dress rehearsals are required (please see band handbook; issues with a scheduled rehearsal needs to be discussed with Mr. Lee ASAP).  Dress rehearsal dates and times are as follows:

  • Dress Rehearsal 3:  Monday, December 16th; During TIGER Time

BAND BOOSTER MEETING:  Next scheduled band booster meeting is scheduled for 7 January at 6:30 p.m.  Please make arrangements to come.

ANYONE PLANNING TO AUDTION FOR ALL DISTRICT BAND:  By this point, if you are planning to audition, you should have already let me know.  If you have not let me know this, you are late and the cost to register is higher for you.  Late registrations are $25 at this point.  For those who have let me know that they were planning to audition, the date of the auditions is January 11th (Saturday).  More details will go out closer to the date.

WINTERGUARD REHEARSALS:  Please make sure you are staying up to date with information from Victoria via the BAND app.  Rehearsals the next couple of weeks:

  • Monday, December 16th:  Varsity and J.V.; 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, December 18th:  Varsity; 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, December 19th:  J. V.; 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, December 21st: Mini Camp for Varsity; 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

CONDOLENCES:  Please keep Mr. Bart Tulbert’s family in your thoughts and prayers.  His father passed away on Friday, 13 December.  As soon as information about arrangements are made available, I will push those out to you.
