Regular Rehearsal on Saturday, October 6
This weekend is the Neenah Soccer Tournament. Many of our students are involved with this as well. If at all possible, please try to have your kids come to a portion of the rehearsal. Remember it is OK if they wear their soccer uniforms to rehearsal!
Concert Winds will rehearse on the stage this Saturday due to the upcoming FVL Band and Choir concert on Sunday. Cadet Band will rehearse in the Band Room this week due to the FVL Choraliers using the Fine Arts Classroom for an extended choreography rehearsal.
Rehearsals leading up to our November concert will be on the following Saturdays:
October 6, 13, 20
November 3, 10, 17
November 18 - Fall Concert (2:00 PM)
Fall Fundraiser Update
We have just under $1800 in online sales so far. There are many more "paper order forms" with more sales. We will not know that total until after this weekend. Although the paper forms/envelopes/checks will be turned in at Saturday's rehearsal, the online sales window will still be open until midnight on Monday, October 8!
Early Prizes for Online Sales - Wave Two!
Since we did not have an opportunity to give out a second wave of prizes at the actual "midpoint" of our sales, we will reward students at tomorrow's rehearsal. Students who have at least 5 items sold in online sales by Saturday, October 6 will receive a giant box of Theater Candy. Students who have at least 10 items sold will receive two boxes! We will have an assortment of candies avaialble. The kids can choose their favorite. There is still plenty of time yet today to make some more online sales to achieve this prize!

Concert Vest Fittings will be Saturday, October 13
We will fit the concert vests for the Cadet Band and Concert Winds students on Saturday, October 13 during the rehearsal. A few moms or dads is all that is needed. We have several moms who have volunteerd for our uniform crew, but more would be welcome on fitting day. Thanks for considering this very important volunteer opportunity!
Then on the day of the concert (November 18) we would need our parent uniform volunteers to assist with distributing the vests before the concert and collecting them after the concert.
FVL Band and Choir Fall Sacred Concert
The FVL Band and Choirs will present their Fall Concert on Sunday, October 7. The concert will begin at 6:00 PM and will last approximately one and a half hours. The concert will take place in the FVL Auditorium. It would be fantastic to see our FVL Schools Band members in the audience for this concert. I know there are many older siblings that go to FVL and participate in band and choir, so those students may already plan to attend. Seeing the "big band brothers and sisters" from FVL perform is a fantastic way to build excitement for our FVL Schools Band members. In just a few short years, they will also be a part of a high school band program.
