*Note:  This Friday morning (May 19) we are hosting a festival starting at 7:30am.  We will have several bands throughout the morning in and out of the find arts area.  There will be very limited access to the band hall and foyer area all morning from 7am forward so if you need to make alternate arrangements for that morning please bear that in mind.  If you would like to help with the festival, even if just for an hour, please let us know!

June 2 – Graduation (Graduation Band):  ALL NON-SENIOR Symphonic and Wind Ensemble Members make up the graduation band, and this is a mandatory performance.  We love this tradition and the opportunity to gather and cheer on our graduating seniors!

FINALS:  All Finals materials have been distributed for practice for the past few weeks.  The final will serve as audition material for next year’s bands as well as the student’s final.  Seniors will take their final on Monday/Tuesday following the senior concert so that we make get grades in to meet the senior deadlines.

Have a wonderful week!
