SAU Honor Band Information

SAU Honor band students, see below for a message from SAU Director of Bands, Dr. Enz.

All others may disregard.

Good morning,

The St. Ambrose University Honor Band is less than a week away. Below are a few final details about the event.

Parents and students will be receiving a similar email if you provided this information.

WHAT TO BRING
Music - Please make sure that your students print and bring all of the music we emailed (a total of four pieces). Make sure all of the parts are well-practiced. The success of the honor band depends on preparation prior to arriving on campus!
Trumpet & Trombone players should bring necessary mutes.
Percussion students need to bring sticks and mallets.
Money for dinner - While lunch is provided, dinner is on your own. A list of nearby restaurants is attached (and will also be provided at the honor band)
Concert Dress - All festival participants are to wear their school concert band uniform/attire for the evening concert.

REGISTRATION & ARRIVAL
Registration begins at 8:00am in the Galvin Lobby, and rehearsal starts at 8:30am.
The Galvin Fine Arts Center is located at the corner of Gaines and High Streets in Davenport on the St. Ambrose Campus. Here is a clickable google map: https://goo.gl/maps/nKyfz
Parking - You may park anywhere in a campus parking lot.
All registration fees ($25 per student) need to be paid prior to the start of the festival in order for students to participate. Each school is handling this differently. Please check with your director if you do not know how the payment is being made.
Cancellations happen. Please notify me of any cancellations as soon as possible so we can modify the seating charts.

SCHEDULE AND OTHER INFORMATION
The Honor Band Festival schedule is attached to this email.
The festival concert will be held in Allaert Auditorium at 7:00pm on Saturday, March 9. Admission for directors to the concert is free.
If you need anything during the day, feel free to Jacob Matthews (the Honor Band Student Coordinator) or Terri Flynn (our Administrative Assistant) for help and they will be able to assist you.

Thank you.
