I hope that you have all had a good start to the new year. I'm looking forward to 2021 with a renewed spirit and a purposeful vision for our band students and our band program!
For planning purposes I would like to share one date change and some additional dates at this time.
Our upcoming winter concert in February will now be held on Saturday, February 27th at 2:00pm in the HS gym. I feel that it is important to allow for as many audience members to attend our concert, and the gymnasium is the only space that allows for each of our students to have at least 2 attendees. Tickets are free and will be distributed to each band member prior to the concert. Tickets will be required for admittance. I will send out COVID related guidelines at a later time.
Doors will open at 1:30pm. Band members will also report to the band/choir rooms at 1:30pm for warmup.
Band member dress code:
Gentlemen-dress pants, dress shirt and tie, dark socks, dress shoes
Ladies- dress or a skirt or dress pants with blouse, dress shoes
The concert should last approximately 45 minutes.
Additional dates for the summer/fall of 2021...
The football playoffs have been expanded by one week, so the regular season begins one week earlier. We will be starting full band (all members) for marching band on July 12. The color guard will begin on July 5.
Band camp will be at Bethany College, WV from July 25-30.
First football game will be August 20.
Lastly, the LHS Band Booster elections will be occur in a few months. Many officer positions need filled! Parents, please consider stepping up to help fill these roles. Our band boosters are incredibly important to the success of our program and to continue to support our band students in grades 6-12.
Also, please do your best to support any and all upcoming fundraising opportunities. With the cancellation of last year's band festival and mattress sale along with this year's Music in Motion competition and Craft Show, we have lost an incredible amount of income. As you know, all of the money earned goes to support our kids and allows us to provide the best possible music education and experiences to our students. Thank you in advance for helping us continue to do just that!
