On Friday, we have received approval to move forward with a SPRING TRIP.
We are planning on a Disney/Universal trip to Orlando with potential parade performance and Disney movie performance workshop. The dates for the trip would be April 20-24 and the approximate cost is $1200. The dates have been looked at closely. This date avoids as many things as possible (although it's inevitable there may be conflicts). We avoided conflicts with Easter weekend, major testing within the school, prom, the musical, and all state band.
Band trips are open to ALL students in the band program, which includes anyone in a band class including Marching Band, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Color Guard, or Percussion.
We are working with the travel company to get some final information to you and get this going. We are a little behind in the process (we would usually be moving on this in August and September!), so there may be a quick turn around for a deposit for this trip.
Thank you for those who have filled out the survey, if you haven't please do so today! For those interested, there have been 82 responses. 62 students are committed to going, 11 students are not sure, and 8 students are not planning to attend.
DISNEY-UNIVERSAL TRIP INTEREST SURVEY
Our Fall Concert is next Tuesday, November 9th at 7:00 pm in the Auditorium and will feature our Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band! The concert is free and open to the public! The concert also serves as the deadline for our Bedsheet Fundraiser and the last band booster fee payment (remaining balance) is due on this date.
Call time is 6:15 pm for students and warm ups are at 6:30 pm. Students should wear their concert dress or tuxedo that they have recently been fitted for during classes. If any alterations need to be done, please do them this week!
We are asking for color guard member volunteers to help pass out programs.
Veteran's Day Parade and Group Picture
The Huntsville Veteran's Day Parade is next Thursday, November 11th. There is no school this day.
The tentative schedule is to meet at HHS for a group photo on the stairs then carpool/drive to the parade start point which is the large parking lot across the street from the post office on Clinton Avenue. The tentative plan is to meet at 10:00 am at that location. The parade starts at 11:11 am.
We have not received our parade number for the parade. We should be done by 1:00 pm but possibly earlier.
Full and final schedule in next week's newsletter.
Our Winter Christmas Concert is Tuesday, December 7th.
