ALL CITY HONOR BAND – The students who made the AISD All City Honor Band will be rehearsing Friday evening and Saturday. The concert is Sat. at 7:00. The attachment to this email is an itinerary for the weekend.

SOLO & ENSEMBLE – It is important that every student turns in their $12.50 for each solo and/or ensemble in which they are entered. Accompanists have been assigned. The accompanists need a copy of the piano music by Friday. Students should be practicing daily on their solo and ensemble music.

ORLANDO – Orlando payments are past due. All students going on the trip should have already paid Oct, Nov, Dec and Jan. Statements are available in Charms.

LEADERSHIP – The leadership workshop has been postponed to Feb. 17th. Mr. Ferrito came down with the flu. The workshop fee is $23.

MATTRESS FUNDRAISER – I hope you all had a chance to watch the videos that the students put together. The band directors have received a few phone calls with questions from people who happened to see the signs on Lamar blvd or in your yards. Thank you for helping spread the word. The more we spread the word, the more people will show up on Feb. 8th. That’s all we ask…get people to the sale. The sales reps will do the rest. Please help us continue to ramp up excitement regarding our fundraiser. If you need any flyers, posters, anything, just let me know.

Friday 1/31 6:00-9:00 All City rehearsal
Saturday 2/1 All City Clinic and Concert
Saturday 2/1 Winterguard contest in Aledo
