JH Band Update

JH Band Students and Parents,

Congratulations on a fine concert last week. It was not easy to put that performance together in the midst of PARCC Testing, Snow Days, and registering for next year’s classes. I appreciate everyone’s focus and effort in bringing the concert together.

Just a few updates for you…

Jazz Band

Jazz Band will NOT rehearse this Wednesday (March 11th). We will resume rehearsals on Wednesday, March 18th.

Solo and Ensemble

Solo and ensemble is on Saturday, April 11th at Defiance High School. Those students who chose to participate in solo and ensemble will need to arrange transportation to and from Defiance. I won’t know exact performance times until the end of March. I will pass those times onto you as soon as I receive them. Students who are playing a solo or participating in an ensemble should be practicing their parts regularly. We will soon begin practicing with an accompanist during class time and students need to be able to play their individual parts.

JH Large Group and Chicken BBQ

Our next big, full band performances are: JH Large Group Contest on Friday, May 15th and the Anthony Wayne Bands Chicken BBQ on Saturday May 16th. Both of these events are required performances for all band students. The performance on May 15th will be sometime in the evening at Perrysburg Junior High School (We will take school busses and travel as a group). As soon as I have the exact times for these performances I will pass that information along to you.

Thanks, and enjoy the WARMING weather!

March Restaurant Fundraiser

It is almost time for this month’s restaurant fundraiser. This month, the Chipotle in Perrysburg is hosting our fundraiser and is giving a whopping 50% of sales to the band boosters.

The fundraiser will be held Tuesday, March 10 at the Chipotle on Route 20 in Perrysburg from 4-7pm. You can print the flyer (PDF), show it on your smartphone or mention the fundraiser to the cashier in order to give 50% of your purchase to the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters.

Thanks again for supporting the Anthony Wayne Instrumental Program,

Bunny Update

With all the crazy weather we have been having lately, we are extending the chocolate bunny sale until Monday, March 2.  

The bunnies are $6 a piece and checks should be made out to AWBB.  Please have all orders and money in to your child’s band director on Monday.  

Thanks for your support.  Stay warm!

Band Fan Opportunities

Please find attached the list of available Band Fan opportunities (PDF).

Lynne Sellers, our Vice-President, has compiled a list of our various fundraisers and functions. With each fundraiser or function, is listed the person or persons that chair that particular fundraiser or function. As you can see when you take a look at it, there are many opportunities available for the 2015-2016 school year.

Please take a moment and look through the list. These are opportunities to meet new people, interact with your kids and maybe even learn a new skill! Oh, and have FUN! If there is anything that you are curious about or are interested in chairing for the upcoming school year, please contact Lynne Sellers or Barb Rettig.

Thanks for helping to make the instrumental music program one we can be proud of!
