Band News (week of 4/22-4/28)

Hey Falcons! Please see below from Mr. Bond's email for the week of Monday (4/22) through Sunday (4/28)...

Good Morning!

Congratulations to the Concert Band 1 for their performance at the UIL Concert and Sight Reading Contest yesterday at Katy High School. The band received first division ratings from all 6 judges.

Good luck to the Symphonic Band as they play at UIL this afternoon at 2:30 at Katy High School!

SLT Auditions

Student leader auditions will take place next week, with interviews happening during class on Tuesday and Wednesday and all student leaders completing their audition on Thursday. Good luck to everyone auditioning!

Summer Band Meals/Water Bottle

During the 8 hour summer band rehearsals, the band booster organization will feed all band members. The meals are always great and it ends up being one less thing that you need to worry about those couple of weeks. In order to have all of this ready for the beginning of summer band, we are asking that meals be paid for at our spring band rehearsals. Woodwind and brass students will need to pay $90 and percussion and guard students will need to pay $120 (incoming freshmen are paying $10 more to cover the cost of their water bottle). I understand that it seems early to do this, but with the band being so large next year this will help to reduce everyone’s stress on the first day of summer band. Checks can be made out to OTHSBBO and can be turned in on any of the three spring rehearsal dates or during class.
