Bradley Honor Band - Freshmen/Sophomores

Hello all,

This is an opportunity for an honor band for FRESHMEN/SOPHOMORE students only. Juniors/Seniors may disregard.

---

Bradley University (Peoria, IL) is having their 29th Annual Freshman-Sophomore Honor Band on November 14th (Tuesday) with a rehearsal on November 7th (Tuesday prior) from 7pm-9pm.

They will accept up to SIX performers from UTHS. STUDENTS WHO CANNOT ATTEND ALL SCHEDULED REHEARSALS AND THE PERFORMANCE SHOULD NOT APPLY

Approximately 90 students will perform in this band based on director’s rating year in school, and instrumentation needs. The STUDENT needs to complete a yellow application sheet (available in the band room) and must come back to Mr. Wawrzynski in the band office no later than October 2nd (This is the Monday that occurs over break).

By October 23rd I’ll receive the list of who has made it and what parts they’ll be assigned. Music will be mailed directly to the students’ home.

It’s a $20 participation fee. This offsets the cost of music, programs, mailings, and two student meals. Tickets to the concert are $5 each.
