This is the first of my weekly emails detailing our upcoming week’s schedule.
Look for these each Sunday/Monday of the season.
These weekly messages will also be posted on the blog page on our band's website: www.wdhsmusic.org
This summer could not have gone better. The weather was great, our fields were dry and our band is as prepared as ever. Thank you to everyone for making our summer camps a priority.
This week we have our first public performance! We will be providing the pre-game entertainment for the football game at Sterling HS. All of us are excited to present our program "Ice-solation" to a live audience. We are still in the
development stages of the program and will be working hard this week to polish as much of our performance as we can. We would like to have 4-5 parents at the game to assist us with moving our pit equipment on and off the field.
At this time, everyone has been fitted for their uniforms. Our thanks and special appreciation needs to go out to Mrs. Tropiano & Mrs. Bonaventure for doing the needed hemming for us.
We will be using our alternate uniform this week for the performance.
This is the same as what we wore on Memorial Day.
All musicians need to locate their band caps!
Band shirts will be issued on Tuesday evening after rehearsal.
Full band uniforms will be issued this Wednesday night.
