TWIGEB (10/29/18-11/03/18)

Hello GEB,

Congratulations on a FANTASTIC marching season – we are so proud of you! Please see below for details this week (10/29/18-11/03/18):

Concert Season Information

Now that we have completed our competitive marching season, we will transition into concert season! Here’s what that looks like:

If you are in Wind Symphony, we will start 8:20 AM rehearsals on Monday.
For all winds, we will begin sectionals as mentioned in your classes. Sectionals occur once a week either before or after school at a schedule agreed upon the section and director. Sectionals occur to help prepare us for the upcoming Winter Concert and All-Region Band auditions.
We will continue marching band rehearsals on Friday mornings until the end of the football season.

Communication will primarily be sent out by the ensemble director. All questions and/or concerns should be addressed there first. The TWIGEB will still be emailed every week.

There will be an All-Region Masterclass for ALL trumpet players on Tuesday, October 30th in the band hall from 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM. Please plan to attend.
