New York Trip for Band Seniors - Spring Break.
An email was sent to seniors regarding payments and commitment to this trip. The first deposit is past due.
All State / District Honor Band Auditions
We are hosting this event!! All students will be required to serve 1 shift on Friday, January 27th and Saturday, January 28th. We need 30 students present at any 1 time. It's a big undertaking and a service to our area.
Students interested in auditioning for All State and District honor band, should submit a $25 check to HHS Band to the band box in an envelope with your name and "All state auditions" on the envelope. The deadline to register with us to audition is Friday, November 18th (day before Thanksgiving)
Auditions will take place Friday, January 27 and Saturday, January 28th at Huntsville High School!
District Honor Band is February 17-18, 2023 at Grissom High School.
All State Band is April 27-29, 2023 at the VBC in HUNTSVILLE!!! Note that the concert on Saturday the 29th should conclude by 5:00 pm in time to attend prom later that evening if that applies to you.
Old Band Uniforms
At the WINTER CONCERT on December 6th, you will have the opportunity to get an old HHS Band Uniform. Seniors will be able to get one as a gift from the HHS Band (you must get it at the winter concert). All other uniforms will be sold for a donation of $10 each to the band.
If you would like your specific uniform, please email Kelly Parrish in advance of the concert at email@example.com. Otherwise, you will be given a uniform at random.
Any uniforms not purchased will be properly removed over Christmas Break.
We had close to 160 people that have paid their first deposit and are going to London. The next payment of $400 is due January 5th. Get your passport now! It should be valid 6 months past our return date!!
Can I still sign up?
Yes - but you must pay for all missed deposits on your first payment or else you can't be locked into the trip. At some point, there will be price increases, room assignments done, airline flights arranged, and other logistical things related to the trip completed. After we do those things, anyone added will just be accommodated the best we can. Our contract is for 150 people so we must be atleast at this number of travelers. If you have not signed up, the sooner you can do this the better for us because numbers dictate many things!
When do you have to declare if you are doing land only or full trip?
I don't have an exact date, but my best estimate is early Fall 2023.
We are in search of some parent assistance for London. We will need some logistical help collecting copies of passports and developing a detailed manifest (for insurance and accountability) of every piece of equipment that will be shipped. This is not immediate work, but may begin late Spring or early Fall.
It is our wish that we have as many or ALL students go on this trip regardless of any financial situation. There are many schools in this country (and at least 1 in Tennessee and North Alabama) that have gone on similar trips and had the backing of local community businesses, leaders, and individuals to have most or all of the student's trip paid for ALL students. If this is something you feel passion about, we need you on our London Fundraising Committee who will seek 4, 5, and 6 digit donations from our community.
London Fundraising Committee
Seeking a small group of parents (3-5) for the good of all band students. This committee's primary responsibility will be to seek out corporate donations to help ensure all band students go on this trip and do what we can to defer cost.
