In a couple of weeks, we head to Los Angeles for the Hollywood Christmas Parade. Rehearsals for this event are ongoing.
We have a winter concert and the Fine Arts Showcase (combined band, chorus, orchestra concert) coming up in December. District Band and AllState tryouts are also near, as well as 2nd semester band auditions. We just performed for a wedding anniversary, and we have a scheduled performance for "Shop With A Greyhound" on December 13th. Jazz band rehearsals have begun, and we have THREE jazz bands on Mondays!
Just after semester change, we start individual instrument sectionals for LGPE preparation, and we have our annual "Symphonic Band Camp" with guest conductors and instructors. Before you know it, the Pre-LGPE Concert and our annual LGPE event will be here (March). As we near the end of school, Spring Concert, Jazz LGPE, and XPLOSION round out the year...so you can see that we don't really slow down, we just change direction!
Please continue to come support the students as they perform in their various ensembles. You will find some excellent performances and some engaged and excited students!
