The Winter Concert is only 6 days away! George Waters will showcase our Band and Choir students on December 11, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. in the school gymnasium. Students should arrive at the school for 6:30 p.m. dressed in their Band shirt and black pants.
In order for the Band to sound its best, everyone needs to prepare properly. Playing during class time is not enough. Students should be practicing 20 minutes a day to prepare for the concert. Even if you know your notes and rhythms, the more you practice at home, the more confidence and endurance you will have for the concert (and the better the Band will sound!).
Students should be practicing the following music:
Gr. 6: Little Robin Redbreast (#22); Merrily We Roll Along (#23); Good King Wenceslas (#27); Dreydl Song (page 13)
Gr. 7: Ayre and Dance; Deck the Hall
Gr. 8: Ayre and Dance; Deck the Hall; Pirates of the Carribean
