UT Band Announcements

Hello all,

 

Just a few announcements moving forward into the 4th quarter!

 

  • Our bands did very well at the Chicagoland Band Festival. Concert Band earned a “I” (Superior) and Symphonic Band earned a “II” (Excellent) – the bands were adjudicated and cliniced by some of the top judges in the nation. This was truly scoring on a “National” level and I couldn’t be prouder of the groups involved. Check the website soon for a news posting with the score sheets and judge’s tapes, for your perusal.
    • If your student missed the performance, they will be given an alternative assignment to make up the missing points.
  • Due to low interest/deposit money for our Disney Trip, we will be cancelling it. If you have paid, I have not yet deposited. I have those checks on hand, and can either give them back to you or destroy them. Let me know if you have a preference. Obviously cash will be given back.
  •  Tomorrow (Wednesday, April 11) we will have the following after school…
    • Pit Rehearsal – 3:30pm-5:30pm
