Notes from the Director
I hope everyone is well rested from spring break and ready for the final push to the end of the semester. We have some busy weeks ahead of us yet, so keep your energy up as we head into the last phase of the year.
Our Winter Guard heads to Fountain Valley High School for the WGASC Championships this Saturday. They perform at 6:48 PM with awards likely around 8:20 PM. Come out to support them in their final competition of the year.
Our Percussion Ensemble has done very well this year, and they create terrific music that is wowing both the judges and audiences. Their Semi-Finals performance will be this Sunday at Colony High School. The schedule will be released on Monday, April 8th. Please come out to support them as they head toward Finals on April 27th.
Scholarship Applications for Seniors and Leadership Applications for other students will go out this week. Please meet all deadlines to be considered. Our Banquet is April 26th, so you may begin to turn in your ticket money this week. Those families who turned in their Fair Share Donation by the deadline in the fall will receive one complimentary ticket.
The Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band both performed well at the festival on March 27th. Thank you to all of the students and parents who worked during the day to make the festival another successful experience for all of our participants. The judges were once again impressed with how well we have organized the event so that it runs smoothly and that our students are courteous and responsive. The Symphonic Band earned an Excellent rating, and the judges noted how challenging their music was, while commending the students on doing a good job of preparing for the festival. The Wind Ensemble earned a Superior rating in both the concert and sight reading portions of the festival. The students voted to attend Regional Festival on April 30th at Colony High School. The performance time is 4:30 PM. More details will come as other parts of the schedule become finalized.
