Lamar Band Weekly Announcements

Concert Week – Last week was a marathon of concerts for many of the Lamar Band members. Monday was a great symphony orchestra performance. Tuesday was a spectacular concert for all Lamar Band students. Wednesday and Thursday were fantastic JH band concerts. Thanks to the student who volunteered to help with Shack and Nichols. On Monday, the final concert will be the symphony orchestra combined with the Lamar choirs at Lamar Baptist Church. We hope everyone can make it out.

 

Pie Fundraiser – The delivery for the pies is Monday. Students who sold pies must pick them up in the band room on Monday. Deliver them ASAP!

 

Spring Schedules – This week the directors will send schedule adjustments to the counselors for the spring semester of band classes. We must make adjustments to prepare for UIL concert bands. The freshmen will stay in 4th period but will move from 7th and 8th period band classes to 9th period concert band ensemble class. Some 10-12 grade students will adjust based on their auditions. Percussion students will move into concert band classes from their 1st and 4th period ensemble classes. If you have questions, please contact me.

 

Inventory and Clean Up – The band staff will be asking student leaders and aspiring future leaders to step up and help clean the band room and help with inventory of band room equipment. Every student is required to take home their blue water jugs, flip books, and any other marching season items they will not need.

 

Drumline Update – Auditions this week.

 

Jazz Update – Work on music for the spring.

 

Winterguard Update – This is finals week so practice will suspend until the camp practices on Jan 2,3,4,6.

 

See the Lamar Google calendar or your printed calendar for exact times for Varsity, JV, and Cadet.
