Dear Wind Ensemble Family, I hope all are well! I wanted to touch base about our schedule in February just before our KMEA state conference performance. Originally, I had planned a preview concert for Monday, Feb. 5th in our theater with our guest conductor. We were recently invited by Dr. Birdwell at UK to perform our preview concert with the UK Wind Symphony on the night of Saturday, February 3rd at 7:30 PM in the Singletary Center For the Arts(UK Honor Band weekend). The venue and performance experience on a this stage with our guest conductor, Tim Reynish, would be extremely valuable. Dr. Birdwell also said that world renowned composer, John Mackey will be in town that evening for the concert making it an even greater experience for the students!
I plan to accept the invitation, but wanted to see if there were any major conflicts. If there is something unavoidable, please let me know immediately. As you well know, every player in the ensemble is very important to the overall success of the group. We are looking forward to a great winter with our wind ensemble!
Thanks to all for your support of the band program!
Sincerely, Bill Kite Director of Bands Henry Clay High School
