Hope everyone is having a nice long weekend.
Here are the slightly condensed lessons for this week:
Middle School Pep band night is January 24th! This is a week from Wednesday. Music and permission slips with more information will be passed out this week. It is a great opportunity for middle schoolers from the entire island to play together with the high school pep band. Always a super exciting night!
Hope everyone had a great first week back!
Now that music week is over we will start back up with lessons and new music in Band!
Here are the lesson schedules for the last week before break!
There will be no lessons the first week in January as it is Music Week for 7th and 8th graders! They will make their class selections this week.
Hey everyone. Great job last Thursday. I’m so proud of all the groups that performed!
Here are the lessons for this week. Get ready for new music….
Here are the lesson schedules for this week:
If you need extra help to prepare for our concert feel free to ask and we’ll work out some extra time for lessons!
OUR WINTER CONCERT IS THURSDAY!
The Winter Concert is at the Criterion Theatre @ 6pm. Student performers are expected arrive no later than 5:45. There is a bake sale fundraiser starting at 5:30.
Groups in the concert: 4th Band, 3/4 Strings, 5/6 Band, 7/8 Band, Full Orchestra, String Cheese, Swallowtail Fiddlers, Jazz Band, Chorus, Show Choir, Voices of the Round Table, Trumpet Troubadours. No K-4 General music in this concert.
Thursday morning from 9-12 all groups performing in the concert will be sound checking at the criterion theatre. All students will need their instruments and music on Thursday (Instruments can be left in the criterion after soundcheck) Students will be expected to bring their instruments home after the concert (unless another situation is worked out with me).
Parent Volunteers Needed!
We are looking for parent volunteers to make the soundcheck process as smooth as possible. We could use help supervising students in the theatre while they are not on stage as well as on the bus rides to and from the theatre. We are also looking for volunteers with trucks or large vans to help transport our percussion/large instruments. We will be transporting the instruments at 8:45am on Thursday and then bringing them back to CES after the concert/the morning after the concert. Please contact if you would be available to help with any of these needs. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Thank you!
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
Here are the lessons for this week:
Our concert is fast approaching! It is December 7th at the Criterion Theatre. We’ll be the final touches on our concert music in our last few rehearsals, so make sure to practice any problem spots. I want to make sure everyone feels confident and excited going into the concert. I am available for before school help with anything, just swing by my office to set up a time.
There will be no jazz band this Friday but there will be jazz on Wednesday morning, starting right at 7:30.
I have been so proud of all the bands in the last few weeks. They sounded great for the parade and are really working hard on our concert music. I can’t wait to hear how it will sound in the criterion theater!
Here are the lesson schedules for this week:
Lessons groups are a bit condensed this week because I am subbing for Mrs. Edmondson’s classes while she is in DC. Make sure you check when your lesson is!
Looking forward, our concert is on the 7th of December. Even though that is still a month away, we are missing a week for thanksgiving. Make sure to find some time to practice! Students participating in the honors fest will take home a permission slip this week. Honors fest is Saturday Nov, 18th.
Hello from the High School where all the chorus students are busy preparing for the concert tonight. It is sounding great!
Just wanted to send out a clarification. The concert tonight is at 5pm! It was changed from 6 to 5 about a month back and that change never made it to the conners emerson website calendar. Hope everyone got the correct time from the permission slip. So sorry if anyone had the wrong time!
See you all tonight at 5!
Here are the lesson schedules for this week.
