Congratulations to the students who participated in the All County Band Concert last Thursday. It was an excellent concert. While there were many NHS students who made the band, it would be fantastic to see those numbers rise by 10% next year. Participating in events like the All County and Solo and Ensemble are wonderful ways to build your college resume.
All Concert Band/Wind Ensemble students have playing assignments this week. All assignments need to be uploaded to Schoology by Friday night (11/22).
Percussion Ensemble had their first playing quiz of the marking period, last Friday (11/15).
Encourage your students to practice daily. If there is no assignment due, students should practice their concert music or practice something for fun. There are lots of great resources on the web to find music. Playing daily is key to development.
This week we have the following after school activities.
We had an excellent turn out for our jazz band information meeting last week. All students were given audition music. Play along recordings for the audition music can be found on the Bands website, https://www.northernhighbands.com/300-band.html. Auditions for the two different groups will take place after Thanksgiving Break. All students are encouraged to participate!!!
Here are some major dates to keep in mind for the future.
As always, thank you for your continued support.
