Lamar Band Weekly Announcements 6/16/2019

New Marcher Camp – Our new march camp was fantastic! The students all accomplished our goals. If you are an incoming freshman, you are encouraged to join us on Tuesday at 6:00pm in the Nichols cafeteria. We will be handing out all the parade music, and the first part of the marching band show music.


Marching Band – We have a lot of information regarding marching season coming in an email early this week. It will have a much more detailed rehearsal schedule and explanation of many things, including the newly required physicals.


Leadership Camp – The section leaders and captains are checking into the UTA band leadership camp today. They will be training all week to become effective student leaders for the Pride of Lamar! Our drum majors take off for the SASI drum major camp at UNT this Wednesday. We are excited that our students are going to learn from different camps. Bringing in a ton of great leadership knowledge.
