ILMEA Band Students, a message from Mr. Maccabee for the full district band...
"Greetings from the desert! I am so looking forward to a great day of music making with your students on Saturday! Please remind your students to have all of their equipment, stands, mutes, reeds, percussion equipment with them. It's very important that everyone has PENCILS with them....I expect to be doing some editing and adjusting throughout the day....they will need to take notes. Most importantly, I hope all students have done a thorough job of preparing for Saturday. If they haven't done so, PLEASE listen to some of the quality recordings of the music ESPECIALLY the Gillingham! David Gillingham has links to his music on his web site. It's a VERY exciting piece.....doable with preparation. Thanks so much for your help. I can't wait to see you all on Saturday."
Friendly Reminders also include the following...
1) What to bring: music, instruments, reeds, mutes, valve/slide oil, sticks/mallets, a folding music stand, and a pencil.
2) Concert attire will be dress clothes; students may dress casually for rehearsal.
