Jazz Assessment Info and Pops Rehearsal Schedule

Dear Band Family,  We have another busy week as we prepare to host the KMEA state Jazz Assessment!  I have compiled a list of student volunteers to help run the assessment and will release details tomorrow.  I could use a few parent volunteers to supervise on Friday evening and throughout the day on Saturday.  If you would be willing to help, please let me know!

Please see the below KMEA Jazz Assessment schedule for this Friday, April 29 and this Saturday, April 30.  The HC Jazz Ensemble, Lab Band, and Combo will perform on Saturday.  Instead of the formal itinerary, all of our jazz groups performing should note the times and be in place ready to warm up and perform accordingly.  Attire for all of our jazz performances will be ALL BLACK.  We welcome any audience members who wish to see the performances and/or clinics with some amazing adjudicators/clinicians coming in for the festival!

Concerning the Pops Concert rehearsals, we use to rehearse concert band, symphonic band, and wind ensemble separately and we would like to try 2 combined band rehearsals this year the week of the Pops concert.

Please note the calendar change with combined band and percussion Pops Concert rehearsals on Monday, May 16th from 4-6 PM and on Thursday, May 19th from 4-6 PM.

Thanks to all for a great year!  We are looking forward to a strong finish!  Sincerely,  Bill Kite  Director of Bands Henry Clay High School
