Rehearsals this week and Upcoming Band Events

I hope you had a great weekend even with the wintery weather. Spring is a busy season for the band program, with lots of fun and important events for band students! Please note the changes to the band rehearsal schedule this week.

Tuesday, March 28th: Grade 9 Early AM Band Rehearsal. Grade 7 AM Band Rehearsal is canceled for tomorrow.

Following early morning band practice, the grade 9 band students (9B and 9D) will take a school bus to Bluefield to spend the morning with the grade 11-12 band. Students who do not attend the early morning rehearsal will not participate in the field trip unless the absence has been excused in advance due to a medical appointment, etc..

Wednesday, March 29th: Grade 8 Early AM Band, Jazz Band after school (3:15-4:30 pm)

Thursday, March 30th: Grade 9 Early AM Band

A few more upcoming band events include:

Tuesday, April 4th:  PEI Band Day in Summerside (Grade 8 and 9 band students will participate). Students will travel by school bus. If anyone can help out that day by volunteering to take some of the larger instruments to Summerside please send me an e-mail. Thank you!

Here is the complete schedule for the two day event:

PEI Band Days Schedule 2023
