Lamar Band Weekly Announcements 6/5/2019

New Marcher Camp – TODAY! We are hosting a new marcher camp at Nichols Junior High, June 5-7 from 5:00pm-8:00pm. The Lamar Band directors and student leaders will teach all the incoming 9th graders how to march and the basics of marching band music. It will be lots of fun and very informative. Parents, please feel free to come up at the end of practice to talk with a director. I’m sure you have many questions. Any 10-12 grade student that has NEVER marched before in the Lamar Band, is welcome and encouraged to join us!


Letter Jackets – Mr. Manto with MECA Jackets will be back out in August to take orders for the fall semester. To order online, just go to his website.


Drumline Update – Drumline results are out. Band placements posted. We look forward to seeing all new members at rehearsal today through Friday.


Jazz Update – Jazz auditions are complete and posted. If you need the next year’s All-State etudes, please contact Mr. Riley. The first All-State study session is June 19th. If you would like to be a part of Viking Jazz, email Mr. Riley at


Color Guard Update – Great first rehearsal! We look forward to seeing all NEW color guard members at New Marcher Camp today through Friday.
