Regular Rehearsal this week
Both Cadet Band and Concert Winds will rehearse this Saturday, January 28. We are busy preparing our selections for the upcoming FVL Musicfest - Time Travel to be held on Januray 29. The Concert Winds will rehearse on the Stage this week, and the Cadet Band will be in the Choir Room as normal.
There will not be a jazz ensemble class this weekend.
Note that we will not have rehearsal on February 4, but will resume again on February 11.
This weekend is our FVL Musicfest performance! It is not easy for our students to learn new music and prepare it for performance in just three short rehearsals. Our directors want to thank them all for their efforts and their willingness to share their musical gifts with our audience!
For Musicfest information - such as when to report, what to wear, schedules, etc. - please refer back to the Director's Update for January 21.
WELS Summer Band Camp!
Many of our students have attended this camp in recent years, and they have all had a wonderful time! The week-long overnight camp takes place at WLHS in Milwaukee and is happening June 18-23! This year's theme is "Let's Celebrate!" and they are more than excited to share this wonderful week of fun, learning, and musical growth with our students. The camp is open to students entering 6-9th grade in the 2017-2018 school year.
The camp has a very nice website with information, such as contact information, cost, and registration forms at WELS Summer Band Camp.
The WELS Summer Band Camp Parent Letter has a lot more information as well. Go to the link for a bit more information on what the students will experience at the camp.
