Rehearsal Saturday, March 30
After a few weeks off due to Spring Break, we have a regular rehearsal scheduled for Saturday, March 30. Counting this rehearsal, we have only THREE rehearsals left before our Spring Concert in April!
Here is the remaining schedule:
Saturday, March 30 Regular rehearsal
Saturday, April 6 Regular rehearsal
Saturday, April 13 Regular rehearsal and Band Awards
Sunday, April 14 Spring Concert - 2:00 PM
Final Rehearsal and Band Awards
Following our final rehearsal on Saturday, April 13, we will be handing out various awards, including medals for students who completed books since Musicfest, WSMA Solo Medals, Attendance Awards, and the Director's Awards (2). Our awards will be presented in the FVL Auditorium. We would like all band students and parents to be in attendance if at all possible. Grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins (and other siblings) are also welcome!
Sunday, April 14 - FVL Schools Spring Band Concert
The concert begins at 2:00 PM in the FVL Auditorium.
- Band members should arrive by 1:00 PM (Concert Black and White clothing), so we can hand out Concert Vests and Ties prior to warm up. Cadet Band and Concert Winds will report to their regular rehearsal rooms at that time.
- The students are encouraged to wear their medals for completing books to the concert! It adds a special touch to the band uniform, and is a visible acknowledgement of a job well-done!
- Students who were awarded medals for the Solo Festival are also encouraged to wear them for the concert.
Many Thanks to Our Crew of Attendance Takers!
Thanks to Gretchen Adrian for putting together the online sign up, as well as our many parents who have volunteered their time to help take attendance. Your help is GREATLY appreciated!
We do have one volunteer spot open for April 6. If you are able to help, simply go to our Volunteer Page for information and the Volunteer Sign Up link to add yourself to the schedule.
Summer Band Camp Opportunity
Many of our students have participated in the WELS Summer Band Camp in Milwaukee. The deadline for the early bird discount is March 31, so there is still time to register. All students received a camp brochure in January. For more information and a link to the WELS Summer Band Camp website, check our Update from January 18.
