Seniors and leadership team had priority for the pep band. From there, we filled in spots based on instrumentation needs and experience. Students involved with the pep band know who they are at this point!
Pictures / Veteran's Day Parade
We have many reasons to do group photos with our marching band in full uniform. In addition to doing this yearly, we also need a group photo for the London New Year's Day Parade to use and for the Wind Ensemble to use in their program for their AMEA performance on Friday, January 20th in Birmingham. Now that we have these uniforms, we are beginning to make plans for this.
We are looking at doing these in Big Spring Park the morning of the Veteran's Day Parade on Friday, November 11 (no school this day). This is the most convenient time we can find to do this! A schedule is coming, but plan on pictures around 8:30 am that morning with parade line up around 10:00 am.
New York Trip for Band Seniors - Spring Break.
We need to know your commitment to this trip and who may accompany you for our planning purposes. This survey will close first things Monday morning.
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.
London Connection! - FIRST PAYMENT DUE NOV. 1!
The first payment of $200 is due by November 1, 2022. Please provide as many details as necessary with your payment on who is applies to. For example, if I have 4 people going, I would make a payment for $800 and include in the memo every person going and their relationship to the student. This helps us keep all of our records accurate!
