Hello, hello, hello!
Hopefully the past week wasn't too stressful on all of you!
Here are a few updates on band life...
1. Rehearsal today from 4pm-7pm. Please communicate ALL absences, tardies, and leaving early with me through an e-mail or a note. Telling me in person just won't cut it - my memory is not that great and there are five million things going on. Please email me, watch me notate it, then call it good. These rehearsals, starting today, ARE a grade.
2. Percussion rehearsal on Wednesday from 5:30-7. Same rules as above applies to the percussion rehearsals.
3. First football game of the season is FRIDAY! How exciting! I'll have a more detailed plan on Friday, but call time will be 5pm. You'll get more information then. Because the percussion have something going on Saturday morning, we will leave after half time for this football game. Plan on staying the ENTIRE GAME unless told otherwise.
4. Saturday, August 27th is the SIUE Percussion Festival. This is a percussion only performance held at SIUE's Korte Stadium. Attached is the itinerary; Civic Memorial performs at 10:30am, we are the first group to perform. Boston Perry and Stella Smith will also perform solos at some point - I'll let you know about specific times for those once I receive them. Please come out and support your fellow band members!
5. Monday, August 29th we have another 4pm-7pm rehearsal.
6. Wednesday, August 31st we have another percussion rehearsal from 5:30pm-7pm.
7. Friday, September 2nd we have another football game. Since we have Bethalto's Homecoming/Labor Day Parade the next morning, we will leave after halftime.
8. Bethalto's Homecoming/Labor Day Parade on Saturday, September 3. Attached is the itinerary for that parade as well! Dress will be black pants, black socks, marching shoes, and the purple CM band polo.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
