Announcements 11/1/15

USBANDS MIDLOTHIAN – Thank you! Thank you to everyone who made yesterday a great day! The final performance last night was a fantastic way to end the competitive season. There are so many people who worked very hard to make this season happen. Let’s finish football season strong as we transition into concert season. The drumline will compete next week in Lewisville at the drumline competition at Lewisville HS.

 

ALL-CITY AUDITIONS – The 10-12 grade all-city honor band auditions are Monday Nov. 9th at Martin HS. The 9th grade auditions will be held Nov. 16th at Martin HS. Students should be practicing their all-city music at least 30 mins everyday. Focused practice at home every day will lead to a successful outcome later! The audition forms are attached to this email.

 

REHEARSALS THIS WEEK – We will NOT rehearse Monday Nov. 2nd. We will rehearse Tuesday from 4:00-5:30 in preparation for senior night this Thursday. This will be the final home game of the season.
