ALL-CITY HONOR BAND CONCERT – This weekend the all-city bands will rehearse with guest clinicians and perform a concert at 7:00pm @ Bowie HS. Admission to the concert is $2 and all proceeds go to benefit the AMEP private lesson program. This is a major source of funding for the scholarships we give to students in need. The LBBC will be taking tickets and selling concert CD’s at the door. If you can provide your time to help out, contact Tamara Sandoval.
The band and band boosters try very hard to keep band fees as low as possible. Unfortunately, the expenses to run a competitive band program are higher each year. To help us keep fees low, we ask that all activity fees, solo fees and any other expense be taken care of in a timely manner. If on a payment plan for band fees, it is crucial that those payments are made on time.
To help prepare us for expenses later this spring, we are starting our 2nd fundraiser as a band program next week. We will be selling the Ghiradelli chocolate bars again as they sold very well last year and we hope to continue with their success. We have sent home a form to decide on the type of chocolate bar to sell. I have attached a copy to this email. We would like each student to sell two boxes of 12 bars equaling a profit of $50. If you paid the donation in lieu of fundraising, there is no obligation to sell.
