MP Band – Information for 6 – 11 January

Good Evening All,

I hope you all are doing well and that you have all had a wonderful winter break.  Lots of things are getting ready to happen over the next several weeks.  Please read this carefully and stay attentive to your e-mail.

BAND BOOSTER MEETING:  Next scheduled band booster meeting is scheduled for 7 January at 6:30 p.m.  Please make arrangements to come.  Tendency is to have low attendance during the winter months.  I would love to see a change in that trend.

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 this Saturday, January 11th.

Schedule for All District Auditions:

  • Report to MPHS:  6:50 a.m.
  • Leave MPHS:  7:00 a.m.
  • Arrive to Porter Ridge HS:  8:00 a.m.
  • Registration:  8:00 a.m.
  • Auditions Start By:  10:00 a.m.
  • Approximate Return to MPHS:  4:00 p.m.; this time cannot be determined until students leave the audition site.  This is dependent on how long auditions take.

Any student who requested to be registered is responsible for the fee, whether they attend the auditions are not.
