Schedule update and announcements– IMPORTANT

Dear Band Family,  I hope everyone is safe and staying warm during the weather this week.  I wanted to touch base concerning our band schedule and several changes.

You have already probably heard that school has been cancelled for the rest of the week.  This means that the Talents of the Bands show led by the Band Council scheduled for Friday 2/20 is postponed.  The Solo and Ensemble Festival at Lexington Catholic HS scheduled for thisSaturday 2/21 is also postponed along with any other honor band events, etc.
The Wind Ensemble Brass/Percussion Sectional that was cancelled yesterday will be rescheduled for next Tuesday 2/24 from 4-6 PM.  Brass, Percussion, and Woodwind (WW on original schedule) sections in Wind Ensemble will ALL have sectionals next Tuesday after school.
Please remember Pep Band begins next week on Monday 2/23 starting with our District Basketball Tournaments.  Mr. Bayerle will send out more info in the near future.
Also please remember, ALL of our ensembles have ambitious programs approaching in the near future and all students should continue practicing and preparing for upcoming Smart Music tests and the music for each concert.
Jazz Ensemble, Lab Band, and both 1st and 3rd period Percussion Ensembles have the Percussion/Jazz Extravaganza concert in a few short weeks on March 26 and should be preparing outside of school.
Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and Wind Ensemble students should continue preparing music for multiple performances in April.  Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble will hold to the Smart Music test schedules published early in the semester.  Please be preparing and if a school computer is needed, record assignments immediately upon returning to school next week.
In addition to our increasingly busy schedule, I wanted to give everyone a “heads up” that I will be out for a couple of weeks beginning nextWed. 2/25.  I will be having hip replacement surgery on Wed. and will then be trying to recover and rehabilitate.  I will return messages as quickly as I am able, but please bear with me during that time.
Thanks to all for your continued work at Bingo each week for our program along with all of the other support you lend to keep our band program strong and thriving!
Sincerely,  Bill Kite  Director of Bands  Henry Clay High School
