UTHS Panther Band


Reminders from the band room...

Hello all,

A few reminders…

This Saturday (3/3) is Solo & Ensemble Contest. We still have about 50 slots that need filling for room monitors! Please, please, please sign up below for a time. It’s easy stuff and a good way to give back to the band program. Mrs. Swanson is taking food donations for the concession stand and judges room as well… your students can volunteer too!


Next week, Tuesday March 6th is our Pre-Festival Band Concert. It starts at 7pm and admission is free. Tuxedos and dresses of course. Report time for the bands is 6:30pm (that’s when we start warming up concert band– so if you plan on changing when you get here you’ll have to arrive).

Also next week, Thursday March 8th, the Symphonic Band will be excused for the day to go to the University of Northern Iowa Concert Band Invitational. Attached is the packet I gave to all students. They will need to bring their own lunch for the day for timing purposes and attire is business casual as it’s a long day.

For those students doing PIT in the musical, I’ve attached our PIT ONLY schedule to rehearse. Two days have already passed. What is NOT on the sheet is that starting April 17th, per Mr. Greer, we will begin rehearsing with the cast every day after school.

Looking forward, Saturday April 7th is the Chicagoland Band Festival for both bands. We don’t have a schedule yet for this but it will be a full day event at Hersey High School. More information to come.

That’s all I can think of at the moment! Have a good day and of course e-mail me with any questions! It’s a hectic time of year for all of us but we always appreciate the sacrifices you make in the name of making great music!

-Mr. W
