NEW INFORMATION AND UPDATES
*POST SPRING BREAK SECTIONAL UPDATE* - All ensembles will move to a new sectional schedule from now until UIL. Please check the "UPCOMING REHEARSALS/EVENTS" section below for your sectional time.
COLOR GUARD AT VISTA RIDGE HS CONTEST - Congrats to our JV and Varsity Winter Guard teams for placing 3rd in each of their divisions at the Vista Ridge contest last Saturday! The next contest will be this Saturday, March 25 at the JV Champs/Varsity Area Contest at Georgetown HS in Georgetown, TX. Varsity's performance will be sometime between 2pm-3:30pm and JV's performance will be between 7:30pm-8:30pm. Times will be officially posted tomorrow.
LEADERSHIP TRAINING BEGINS THIS WEEK - We will kick off our leadership training sessions for 2023 this Wednesday, March 22, in the Band Hall from 4:45pm-5:30pm. Current Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors interested in becoming a section leader or drum major for next year will need to attend. We will be discussing the leadership process and student expectations at this meeting. The dates for the training sessions can be found below in the "UPCOMING REHEARSALS/EVENTS" section.
3/23 DRUMLINE PERFORMANCE - Drumline students will be performing for the groundbreaking of Hubbard Branch Elementary School this Thursday, March 23. Students should arrive at the band hall at 8am wearing the M100 JERSEY.
REMINDER: ACCOMPANIST FEES - If you performed a solo for Solo/Ensemble and you have not turned in your $50 accompanist fee, you must do so ASAP! Checks should be made out to "Belton Band Boosters".
3/30 PRE-UIL CONCERT/2023 SHOW REVEAL - The Belton High School Symphonic Band, Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble will be performing their respective UIL concert programs on Thursday, March 30 at 6:30pm in the Belton HS Performing Arts Center. We highly recommend that family and friends attend this concert, as this may be the only opportunity to hear the students perform this music due to the UIL contest taking place during the school day. Students will need to be dressed in full concert formal wear by their respective call times.
Symphonic Band - 6:00pm ON STAGE
Wind Symphony - 6:15pm IN THE BAND HALL
Wind Ensemble - 6:30pm IN THE ORCHESTRA ROOM
We will also be revealing our 2023 marching show for next year immediately after the Wind Ensemble performance!
