Thanks to everyone who came out to our Booster Meeting last week and to Panda Express to support the music program! STUDENTS: Rock the House is NEXT WEEK! RUN THROUGH your Jazz, Concert Band, and Wind Ensemble music for this IMPORTANT week of rehearsal.
NEED HELP ON YOUR MUSIC??
Mr. Loney is available to help tomorrow (2/19) from 2:45 - 4:00 p.m. on your Solo Ensemble piece, scales, Jazz, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, or Italy music. We want to get as many Superiors as possible at Solo Ensemble and it's our last week of rehearsal before Rock the House!

NEXT ITALY REHEARSAL 3/3
The next Italy rehearsal is Sunday, March 3 at Indio High School (location changed). Practice and be ready for: Pixar Movie Magic, Washington Post March, Hymn Song of Philip Bliss, and Folk Song Suite Mvt. 1. HW: Watch a live recording of a group playing all three movements of Holst's "First Suite in Eb." Here's a great YouTube video of the Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra.
Have you brought in a trashbag of old shoes yet? They can be in any condition as long as they're a pair. Just tie or rubberband them together, throw them into large trash bags, and drop them off at the Band Room (301). Students will be entered into a drawing for movie tickets, Johnny Rockets gift cards, and a Visa gift card for each trash bag of shoes brought in.
