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
Now that summer vacation has officially ended, we expect to have 100% attendance at every rehearsal and event.
This week we have our first public performance! We will be providing the halftime entertainment for the home football game vs Audubon HS. All of us are excited to present our program "The New World" 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 the parents who were able to do the needed hemming for us.
We will be using our alternate uniform this week for Friday's FB 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 next week.
Band performance attire for this week:
WDMB shirt (provided), Black Cap (provided)
Solid black pants with belt, Solid Black shoes, Black socks.
Color Guard performance attire this week:
WDMB shirt (provided), Solid black shorts with respectable length (no short-shorts or cut-offs please!),
Solid white shoes/sneakers, White socks.
Band shoes: Any band members who still need shoes will need to provide Mr. Kershaw their size on Tuesday. Most students ordered them in the spring, but we will be putting in another order this week. Shoes are $35. Please make checks payable to "West Deptford High School"
