MP Band – Information for 3 – 8 February 2020

Good Evening All,

I hope you all are doing well.  Welcome to the 2nd Semester.  Time seems to be flying.  Before you know it, it will be June 13th and we will be watching our Seniors march across the stage for Graduation.

BAND BOOSTER MEETING TO BE POSTPONEDNext scheduled band booster meeting was scheduled for this week.  Due to some sickness and time conflicts, the meeting is being postponed to Monday, 10 Feb 2020.  Again, tendency is to have low attendance during the winter months.  I would love to see a change in that trend.  This month is super important.  We will be looking at the boosters’ by-laws and discussing possible addendums/changes.  All addendums/changes that are discussed will be voted on at a later date.  We would love as much input on this process as we can get.  Please plan to attend.

JAZZ BAND INTEREST MEETING:  We will be hosting an interest meeting for anyone that is interested in being a part of the MP Band’s Jazz Band.  This meeting will take place on 8 FEB 2020 (Thursday) at 4:00 p.m. in the middle school’s band room.  This is open to anyone interested in being a part of this group.

CONGRATULATIONS:  Congratulations to Jason Parra, Zachary Norman, and Jacob Chase for representing the MP Band Program at the SCDBA All District Honors Band Clinic on 24-25 Jan 2020.  They did a PHENOMENAL job.

Congratulations are also in order for both the Varsity and Junior Varsity Winterguard units.  They had their Preview show this past weekend and did a wonderful job.  I am excited to see where the season takes them.
