MZB Update 8-25-18


Congratulations on completing our first performances of the season, as well as our entire band camp portion of the schedule!  From here on out, we now shift gears to our "normal" weekly schedule.  Here is a look at what we have this week:

Tuesday - Rehearsal 6-9 PM

Thursday - Rehearsal 6-9 PM

Friday - HOME football game vs. Easton ; Report time is 4:30 PM ; Chaperones needed at the band room by 5:30 PM ; Gator driver needed up at the garage by 6:00 PM.  We will be performing PREGAME starting at 6:40 PM.

For each home game, all band members are entitled to 1 FREE food item and 1 FREE drink from the snack stand during 3rd quarter break, compliments of the WMPA.  In order to redeem these items, you must complete the following Google Form by THURSDAY -- otherwise, you will not receive any free food and will need to purchase it yourself.  Here is the link to the form:

A reminder, all musicians MUST have the Alma Mater and Star-Spangled Banner MEMORIZED for Friday's game!

Lastly, Philadelphia Phillies Band Night tickets orders are due on THURSDAY, August 30!  Here are the details again: 
  • This is an OPTIONAL activity for members.  We will perform as part of a "mass band" with other schools before the game.  If you wish to participate, you will need to purchase a $15 ticket to the game.  Just put your money (cash or check payable to "WMPA") in an envelope labeled with your name and Phillies Band Night on it, and give it to Mr. Tanzos at rehearsal.
  • We also use this event as a fundraiser -- attached is a ticket order form.  Families and friends can purchase a ticket to the game from us for $30 each.  HALF of every ticket we sell goes directly to the WMPA!  ANYONE can purchase a ticket -- so please spread the word and try to sell some tickets to whoever may wish to go to the game.
  • We are still in need of at least 1 more parent chaperone for the event!  Chaperones will need to purchase a $30 ticket, be able to be at the school by 2:00 PM the day of the game, and have all proper clearances on file with the district.  If you are interested in chaperoning, please e-mail me ASAP.
  • If you plan to participate in the event -- here is the link to the Phillies Band Night page, which has the music for download at the bottom of the page.  Just click on your part and print it out.

Thank you, have a great weekend and 1st day of school, and see you TUESDAY!
