HALLOWEEN PARTY – A big thanks to the Husband family on hosting the band Halloween party this past Friday! The party was a success and well put together by the band leadership team. Thanks to social chair Sarah Richards and band council members Karla Flores, Makayla Cruz, Ashley Mares and Centauri Lemons.

 

REHEARSALS THIS WEEK – We will NOT rehearse Monday Oct. 26th. The band directors are judging the All-City Honor Band auditions for the Jr. High students. We will rehearse this Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00-7:00 to prepare for the game Friday and marching contest on Saturday.

 

UIL CONTEST – Thank you to all the parents who came out to support the band this past Tuesday. The students had their best performance to date. It was nice to hear the students talk about doing their best and being proud of the progress they have made this season. We will perform at our final marching band competition this Saturday at Midlothian.

 

USBANDS REMO FINALE SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP – This Saturday we will compete in the annual USBands north Texas championship. We have been doing this contest since our trip to Austin a few years ago. The itinerary will be sent as soon as we finalize meal plans with the LBBC. This will be a fun and exciting contest and a great way to perform BENT one last time!

 

FOOTBALL @ AT&T STADIUM – It was great to see parents and families supporting the band Saturday at AT&T stadium. The students had a good time and it was a neat experience to perform at Cowboys stadium again. There is a good chance we will be back there in a few weeks for the football playoffs.

 

SPRING TRIP – Spring trip payment number two is coming up at the beginning of November. The beginning of the month is also the due date for monthly band activity fee payments.
