Band Camp is just around the corner!

Director’s Note:

Band Camp is right around the corner.  Just reminding everyone that the start date for camp is (Wednesday) July 30, 2014 at 8:00 AM.  The schedule for the first week is as follows:
8:00 – 11:30 AM Marching Fundamentals (Outside)
11:30 – 1:00 PM Lunch (Bring your own or go out – Sections will often have a planned lunch together)
1:00 – 3:30 PM Music Rehearsals (Inside)
Drumline will go to 5:00 PM
Saturday 8 – Noon is an important rehearsal where we focus on sets for the show.  Front Ensemble will rehearse at that time as well.
These are Mandatory rehearsals, so if you can’t make it you must communicate via email/text to me, section leaders, and or Drum Majors.
We’ve been working hard this summer on this show.  It’s going to be great!
Here’s a teaser about the Year of the Dragon:
See you soon – Mike Jones
