Good afternoon band family! This post is for students of the jazz band, winterguard, or who are taking a solo to stare S&E.
Next Tuesday, 3/22/22, is the day of the event at Vero beach high school. If you are participating in the event, you will be excused from your classes that day. It is a long day of events, so read carefully to see how your day can be altered slightly.
We will be taking a bus, all jazz band and winter guard members should plan to ride the bus up and back with us. If you are in Jazz/winter guard AND ALSO taking a solo for evaluation, you may provide your own transportation to and from the event. The reason for this is because of how early the jazz band and winterguard will be finished compared to the solos. If you’re providing your own transportation, I will need a note from a parent approving this. If you aren’t a wind player or percussionist who has a solo, you should plan to ride the bus to and from Vero beach high school. Donuts will be provided at pslhs school before we leave, and you will need to bring about $10 with you for lunch.
Below you will find the schedules for the day, as well as our itinerary.
Solo and Ensemble - winds and percussion:
Solo and ensemble - Color Guard
Our full itinerary -
6:00AM - call time in band room for the bus. Please show up in uniform to perform if you’re in jazz band

8:15am - conclusion of jazz performance. At this point, students will have a few options on what they can do until color guard performs. Watch jazz bands in the auditorium, watch guards in the gym, or go to the warm up area in cafeteria.
9:30am-10:00am - pslhs color guard performances in gym.
10:30am - we will be leaving the vbhs on the bus and going to lunch at this point. Students that are playing a solo later in the afternoon will now be responsible for their own transportation after lunch. Once we arrive back at pslhs around noon, students will be excused to go home with a parent picking them up, or going back to 7th period.
1:00pm - I will be returning to Vero Beach High School to hear the students who perform solos.
Please let me know if you have any questions. It’s an interesting day with so many things going on. It may be confusing, so I will help with what I can.
