This year summer band will be a happening on the following dates. While it is a mandatory event, we understand that vacations happen. It is mandatory if you are in town. If you will not be there for any reason, please email the band directors. All incoming Advanced Band members (those in Concert, Symphonic, or Honors Bands) are required to attend. Incoming Beginning Band members are not to attend.
Each day will be from 9 am to 12 pm. Students will be having sectionals to get back into playing shape and a full rehearsal with the entire band.
If you have any questions, you can email the band directors.
Below is the final itinerary and permission slip for next week’s UIL Concert and Sight-Reading Evaluation.
This handout was also passed out today in your student’s band class.
Please turn in the permission slip by Monday, March 6.
If you have any questions, please let us know!
This week your student was given an order form for tickets to the March 4th McNeil Band and Guard Pancake Breakfast. Our band program receives $5 from each ticket sold before the breakfast using these forms, so please look for the form, fill it out, and join the McNeil Band at this fun event!! Feel free to take orders from friends and neighbors as well. Orders will be filled at school and sent home with your student. Please make checks out to McNeil Band Boosters.
This year’s breakfast will be held from 7:00-11:00 am Saturday, March 4 at St. Philip’s United Methodist Church on Great Oaks Dr. near Cedar Valley Middle School. There will also be a bake sale and a huge silent auction at the event. A slideshow showing high school band activities will be running throughout the morning, and the McNeil Drumline is currently scheduled to perform at 9:00 am with the Jazz Band following at 10:00 am. Other student ensembles will be performing as well.
It should be a lot of fun, so please come out, support our band program, and order your tickets today! 🙂
