I hope all of you are having a wonderful summer filled with fun, leisure, friends, family, and of course your instrument! I am fired up for this year and the exciting concerts, music, jazz band, pep band and other activities!
I am contacting you regarding our first opportunity to make some music and have a little fun! The Oktoberfest parade is just around the corner! The parade will take place on August 28th. For this year’s parade we will be performing some pep band and Oktoberfest tunes while riding on a float. We will have a blast! Because most of you have played the music before, I figure we do not need to spend much time on it.
I am aware that there are a lot of prior commitments occurring as the school year becomes closer so I have tried to create a flexible schedule. This year, due to the Community Theatre’s presentation of “Annie”, we will have rehearsal on Monday, August 22nd from 6-7:30 PM and Wednesday, August 24th from 7-8:30 PM. If you are unable to attend rehearsal, please be at the school for the parade at 10 AM Sunday, August 28th to help set-up. This parade is an important event in the community. Members from our community have already contacted me expressing their gratitude towards the band for its great entertainment and for some people this will be the only concert they will see all year so it is imperative that we bring our A game. I do ask that everyone who is able to be at the parade to participate in band and then you are welcome to join your other floats. The band is one of the very first floats so you will have time to join another float!
I am looking forward to making music with you this August and also this year. Have a great rest of the summer and I will see you the 22nd at 6 PM!
