NEW INFORMATION AND UPDATES
COLOR GUARD GEORGETOWN CONTEST - Our JV and Varsity Winter Guard teams have concluded their seasons this past Saturday with JV placing 7th in their division and Varsity placing 8th in theirs. It has been awesome watching the teams perform and grow throughout the season and I am proud of all of the hard work each of you has put in! Thanks to all band members who traveled and assisted with the guard and their performances!
3/27 STATE SOLO/ENSEMBLE RECOGNITION - The 7 students that qualified for State Solo and Ensemble will be recognized at the Board Meeting at the Pittenger Center tomorrow! Below is the information for the event.
Arrive at 5:50pm.
Meeting starts at 6:15pm.
Students will remain at the meeting for all student recognitions, then leave as a full group once all recognitions are done.
AFTER SCHOOL SECTIONAL SCHEDULE - Due to the timing of the board meeting, we will need to cancel the Wind Ensemble after school brass/percussion sectional. We WILL still have the woodwind after school sectional on Tuesday.

3/29 BHS HOSTING MIDDLE SCHOOL CHOIR UIL - We will be hosting MS choir UIL this Wednesday, March 29th. The band hall will not be accessible during the day. It is my intention for the Wind Ensemble and Jazz Ensemble to rehearse during this day. We will provide more details once we have more information.

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
