Upcoming events

Our Spring Band Concert was originally scheduled for May 1.  We will be pushing that date back to allow for the best possible performance to occur.  I am VERY excited about all of the pieces we will be performing, and we want to make sure it is high quality.

April 26 - Solo & Ensemble Festival (few participating students)

May 3 - Nokesville Elementary Legacy Ceremony (Band MAY perform.  I am unclear at this time.)

May 17 - Nokesville Day Parade (marching band, but new members may attend as well)  After school rehearsals are TBA.  They may not be necessary, and I want to avoid them during testing season.

May 22 - Spring Concert (all band students)

June 3 - Spring Concert (orchestra and select band students)

June 7 - Graduation (Band students perform at ceremony, which will be in the morning)

Manassas Christmas Parade

Marching band will NOT be performing in the parade tomorrow morning.  I am sincerely sorry for this being last minute, but in addition to people not feeling prepared (even though I know they would perform well,) I am feeling quite sick and do not think I could physically get through the parade.  Rehearsal will be cancelled today.  I was looking forward to the parade and having some new members participate.  Hopefully we can get everyone included for the Nokesville parade next week (call time will be 2:30.)

Marching band reminders

Friday October 25th is Senior Night.  Seniors will be recognized during halftime.  We will perform our entire show one last time before VBODA State Assessment in the morning.

DON'T FORGET BLACK SOCKS!!!

We will leave after half time.  A safe time might be 8:30.

On Saturday, please be ready to rehearse BY 7:30!!!  (You may want to get here at 7:15.)

***CHANGE***

After our VBODA performance, we would like to celebrate the end of our marching band season with paper plate awards.  We will have food available for the kids, they will make awards for each other, and just have a fun event for closure to the season.  This is not mandatory, but it is strongly suggested as part of band comradery.  This event should be concluded by 1:30.  If you are available to help with food, please contact Dawn Harman or Susie Kincy. 

Spring Trip

Unfortunately,we will not be going on the spring trip this year due to lack of interest.  I will return your checks at the spring concert.  At that time, you could also speak to our boosters, because if you like, we could just keep the check to apply to marching band dues for next year, or donation.  If you would like to get e-mails from our boosters but have not been getting them, please contact our president, Dawn Harman - dharman@pwcgov.org  (Yes, this is for band AND orchestra.)
