Sectionals – Last week was a great start to our sectional schedule. With the MLK day holiday today, we will make small adjustments for this week. Sectionals are a weekly grade. The Symphonic Winds sectionals on Monday will join the other S.W. sectional 3:00pm-4:00pm on Tuesday. This week only.
Solo & Ensemble – All students should have a solo selected by now. Parents, ask your musician the name of their solo…if you haven’t heard them practicing it yet. Many students will also be playing a small ensemble. Students participating in UIL solo & ensemble contest must have completed the entry info by Wednesday this week.
