Your directors/instructors were impressed with your great showing at our first game! There was very good focus during the performance and as a result was well received by the audience! Your positive enthusiasm during the game definitely added to the home "turf" advantage for our team! I think everyone will be looking forward to another "roller coaster" ride at the next game with Kevin. :)

Congrats on your good performance at Summerfest. Our audiences in the parade and at the concert enjoyed our presentation.

Our next rehearsal is Monday, Aug. 30th from 6 pm to 8 pm. We will be spending a great majority of the rehearsal learning drill spots for Part II of our show! We need to have perfect attendance to make the most progress at our rehearsals!

Please note that rehearsal next Wednesday (9/1) will begin our normal rehearsal times for the rest of the season (6:30 pm to 9:15 pm)

Next performance report times:
Sept 10th (Fri) football game - 6:30 pm
Sept 18th (Sat) Wheaton-North HS Field Comp - TBA
It seems likely our performance time will be late afternoon or early evening. Please note that you should reserve the entire day for band as we will be having a rehearsal in the morning.

Uniform News
Delivery of our new uniforms is due the week of Sept. 13th. More information about fittings and guidelines for uniform care/maintenance will be forthcoming.

Tag Day Pictures

Below are a few pictures from today's Tag Day at Wal-Mart. Thanks to Mrs. Wolz for taking and sending the pictures! She said patrons were happy to see our students performing rather than just asking for donations. Simultaneously earning money for student accounts, the band program, AND spreading music in the community - sounds like a good day to me!

ALSO - Please see Mr. Anderson's post below for information about this week's rehearsals and Sunday's parade!
