Congratulations again on our Crown Jewel performance this past Saturday! I think we have all noticed improvement in our band, and we now know what we need to do as we push through to marching MPA! I hope we all got rest this weekend after a busy, but fun Homecoming Week!
- If you have not paid your band fee, please do so as soon as possible. Come talk to Mr. Wiley if you are not sure of your balance.
- This week we will begin a new Fundraiser, selling Gourmet Kettle Corn. Each student will receive an envelope with detailed instructions on how to go out and sell. If every student sells 10 bags, we could earn over $2,000 profit!
-We will have normally scheduled marching rehearsals on Tuesday and Thursday from 2:30 - 5:00.
-If you are interested in the PIT orchestra for the winter musical "Guys and Dolls", the auditions will be held on Monday November 7th, from 5:00 - 7:00 PM in the band room. Please see Mr. Wiley if interested and you will be assigned a time slot. The audition will consist of the following: An excerpt of lyrical music, an excerpt of technical music, your chromatic scale (from the lowest you can play, to the highest you can play, in even 8th notes), and sight reading. Percussionists, if you are interested in auditioning to play drum set, you must sight read and showcase a swing style for 32 measures.
- The jazz band and pit orchestra will begin having rehearsals in November. Be on the lookout for updates to the band calendar.
- Our next home game will be on October 28th against Westwood High School. This will also be our Middle School Band Night! If you know any 8th graders interested in coming to PSLHS next year, please see Mr. Wiley to get a flyer to give to them!
-Marching MPA will be on November 5th at Jensen Beach High School. An itinerary for the day will be made at the beginning of next week.
We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow! Get some rest, and Go JAGS!
