Holzer’s This Week In Band 2/5 – 2/10

Incredibly proud of all of our students for an OUTSTANDING Mid-Winter Concert.  Beautiful music comes from the heart and you displayed the highest level of artistry through this performance.  Thank you to all for the many hours spent practicing and perfecting your music.  Concerts are the ultimate group effort and you gave 110%.

In this link Newsletter and Testing Dates you will find a list of approved SAT/ACT testing dates  for next year.  Following this calendar will help us avoid any testing conflicts.

As you receive your solo originals, please number the solo and accompaniment parts in pencil, and turn in the accompaniment to your director ASAP so we can give it to the accompanists to practice.  Solos may be ordered from www.penders.com and www.jwpepper.com.
