Performance-wise, we have the Swing & Sweets Jazz Concert on Feb 13th, our Pre-LGPE Concert with all three symphonic bands on March 3, LGPE March 19-21, and several Winter Guard competitions and Percussion Ensemble events throughout the next 3 months.
The Wind Symphony has the President's Cup Performance in Washington D.C. in April.
After that we have Spring Concert, Jazz LGPE, and the XPLOSION! Show.
Sandwiched in between we have section rehearsals, full band rehearsals, and chamber ensemble rehearsals before school, during AO, and after school.
We also need to be communicating with our 8th grade families as they look ahead to high school and go through the registration process. The best ambassadors we have are the parents of current students who are in the Pope Band and enjoying the many opportunities and benefits of the program. Make some contacts, spread the word, and help our band program grow!
