Lamar Band Weekly Announcements 7/7/2019

Parade – Wow what a great day! The Lamar Band performed with Pride in the Arlington Independence Day Parade! I am very thankful to have such a huge group of parents helping out before, during, and after the parade. Marching over 2 miles in about 45 mins is a big challenge in this summer heat. The good news is that a normal halftime show is about 7 mins long and nowhere near 2 miles!

Thanks to Karla Flores for these parade photos –


Tuesday Rehearsal – We will continue our weekly Tuesday evening practices this week. This week we will work on the first part of “The Box” and a couple of stand tunes. We will be inside but it is still smart to bring a water bottle. Rides should be waiting on students at 8:30pm.


Forms – The band directors are almost finished with the handbook and forms for registration day. The most important form right now is the physical. Please take care of this now. Students without a complete physical on August 1st will not be allowed to practice outside.


Band fees – The activity fee is $300. More details coming soon. Band activity fees can be paid online at


Drumline Update – Drumline camp is July 22-26. This a critical camp and where most of the music will be taught.


Jazz Update – All-State Jazz practice session on Wednesday at 1:00pm.


Color Guard Update – Remember to bring your water jugs to Saturday practices!
