Band Schedule and Pep Band Info

Dear Band Family,

Please keep up to date with the online band calendar at http://www.henryclayband.org

Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and Wind Ensemble are entering a stretch with their last few rehearsals for assessment which will be Wednesday, March 27th at Frederick Douglass HS for all 3 bands. The commitment of each and every band member is essential to the success of each group. As we discuss at the beginning of every year, rehearsals have been on the calendar since the spring or summer before the school year starts. Students should only miss in case of emergency. Occasionally, rehearsals are not on the same day of the week throughout each month as we have to avoid a variety of school events and other conflicts when we create our schedule. Often times, we are left with a small window of time for scheduling. All bands have weekly after school rehearsals over the next 3 weeks. Rehearsals are mandatory for continued participation in the Henry Clay Band Program.

A special thank you to all students who continue providing wonderful energy and atmosphere at our tournament basketball games in pep band.

All games from now on are road games and will consist of 30-35 band members so we can fit on one bus. It is important we have each instrument represented for pep band. Students should communicate with me immediately if they are unable to fill their assignment so I can find an adequate replacement.

Our next game will be this Thursday, February 28th. Call time is 6:00 PM in HC colors in the band room. The bus will leave for Madison Southern HS apx 6:15 PM. Please see the pep band list for Thursday, 2/28 below:
