Sign-Up Genius for M100 Leadership Team Work Days July 27 & 28:
Only for section leaders and drum majors. You don’t have to be in the same group both days but we can only have a max of 11 in each group. Staggered times so we avoid group contact as one group is leaving and one is coming in. You must stay at least 6’ away from each other at all times AND you must wear a mask. Will let you know the best door to enter/exit as we get closer to the 27th. Bring your own water bottle if you like and you cannot share water or any other drinks/food. Work will be done indoors. Bring gloves if you’d like - not required but everything is pretty dirty due to construction. We will remind you of safety precautions when you arrive. This is voluntary. Thank you!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you cannot attend.
Fall Show Solo Audition Results:
Results will be shared at a later date and once we have more definite information on what our fall semester will look like. More information will be shared as soon as we get it. Thanks for your patience and thanks to all who submitted an audition recording!
Leadership Training from SASI - August 1st and 2nd:
Professional leadership training for section leaders and drum majors will take place on Aug. 1st and 2nd and will be done virtually. Manny Maldonado from SASI will be doing the training. He is awesome and a long time friend! He was one of the founding fathers of the company and is truly inspirational. You will get A LOT out of this experience and he has already conducted many camps virtually this summer with much success. These are live sessions so you’ll need to attend at these times:
August 1 - 9am-noon
August 2 - 1pm-4pm
More information regarding log-in and camp supplies coming soon! Please reserve these dates/times. Students are not responsible for the training camp fee.
