The Knights Band will be hosting a fundraiser to raise funds for Props, Additional Electronic needs, Clinicians, and Marching Technicians. The fundraiser will be an online donation through a company called FanAngel. We are shooting for the goal of $30,000! The fundraiser will start on February on Monday February 10th and conclude on Friday March 6th. We need “all hands on deck” for this event!
Solo and Ensemble season is upon us! In addition to preparing for UIL, we need our students diligently preparing for Solo and Ensemble (UIL-Feb. 8th, CFHS-Feb. 22nd) Students should be able to play top to bottom on their solos by now, if not, they must catch up as they are behind. Funds for the piano accompanist are due on the first rehearsal date (scheduled later). The cost of a class 2/3 solo is $25 and $35 for a class 1.
Mr. Moreno will be contacting students that have past due band fees. If you have any outstanding fees, please feel free to contact Mr. Moreno.
The Wind Ensemble Side by Side rehearsal was a TREMENDOUS success. Our students represented our program well and all had a great time! Many of the 8th graders came and told me they LOVE our high school band students. Thank you all for your sacrifice to make this fun for our incoming 8th grade students. The Symphonic Band will do a side by side with the Seabrook 2nd band on Wednesday February 5th 3:30-5:30 at Seabrook. We will bus the students to the school. Please bring a snack for this event.
Congratulations to our Winter JV and Varsity Guards! Our JV guard took 2nd place (out of 9) in their class at their first performance ever and Varsity placed 3rd (out of 8) for their class. There is great growth happening in our program! We are in need of additional parent help, but any parent wishing to help at shows please contact Mr. Whelan. Background checks MUST be complete before ANY parent can be around our students.
