MZB Update 9/1/19


We successfully made it through our first away football game experience this past weekend -- still some areas to improve as the season goes on, but the important thing is to learn and continue to grow each opportunity we get.  With that said, here is a look at next week's schedule:

Tuesday - Rehearsal 6-9 PM

Thursday - Rehearsal 6-9 PM

Friday - HOME football game vs Emmaus ; Report time is 4:30 PM, Gator and chaperones needed at the band room by 5:30 PM.  We will be performing PREGAME, starting around 6:40 PM.  Please be sure to complete your 3rd quarter break food and drink order by the end of the day on THURSDAY:

Since we are now in school, members may stay after school in the HS Band Room on Friday between the end of the school day and report time for the football game.  You are welcome to go home and come back by report time, but this is an option for those who cannot/choose not to.  Middle School members can meet in the Cafeteria and will be walked over by MS Security.  Please be sure to bring everything with you that you will need for the game -- or drop it off in a bag Thursday night and keep it in my office.  We will order pizza if you wish to partake: plan on $1.50 per slice and $1 per drink.

If you have signed up for the Philadelphia Phillies Band Night on Monday, September 9, please begin looking at and preparing the music for it.  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.

Please be sure to review all of what we know so far, especially what we've learned of Movement 3 so far.  By Tuesday, it is important that ALL of Movement 3 is completely memorized musically, so that we can effectively continue learning drill to it this week.

Thank you,
