For some events, particularly competitions, the band directors are NOT informed of the performance time until about a week before the performance. Therefore, the schedule will indicate to keep the day open. The specific times will be announced to the students and parents as soon as the director has confirmation. This can be frustrating for overall scheduling for families, but it is out of the director’s control. In order to get the information out in a timely and organized manner, Tuesday Sheets will be released the Tuesday before every competition or contest.
Just a reminder about the All-City Band Concert TONIGHT at 7pm in Hayes Gym! EVERY band from all three schools will be performing tonight. This is a great chance to see the progression for 5th grade to 12th. The concert will be approximately 1 hour. Report time for all members is 6pm and the Hayes Jazz Ensemble report time is 6:30.
Remember, Hayes Wind Ensemble has their after school rehearsal THIS WEDNESDAY from 6-8pm! This is a MANDATORY rehearsal, plan on attending! We will be adjudicated by some of the finest band directors in the state and this is a very important step in our preparation for OMEA Large Group Contest.
District contest is approaching quickly! Due to class cancelations in the high school schedule, OGT week, and snow days, we unfortunately have to add an after school rehearsal to the schedule. The after school rehearsal will take place Wednesday March 6th and 6pm. We will provide snacks for the students as well as having the rehearsal count as a pep band game attendance for those who did not meet the required 6 games, for those who did, it is extra credit. In addition to snacks, we will also be bringing in three guest judges to work with the band and help us prepare for contest. Remember, this is a REQUIRED event and we are sorry for the short notice. If there is a conflict with the rehearsal time, please let us know ASAP or the absence WILL be counted against you.
