Leadership Training Opportunity
Sunday, October 5th, 2014

On Monday, October 13, we have the opportunity to participate as the testing venue for Samantha Chase (Junior, Music Ed at Columbus State University) and her second installment of her Student Leadership Workshop Series.

We hired Ms. Chase last season to implement her first session with our students and she would like to provide our students with the second installment.

The only day we can work is Monday, October 13 from 8:00 a.m – 3:45 p.m. and students will need to bring their lunch. That day is Columbus Day and a teacher Work Day.

This opportunity should be embraced by the LT and LC members but is available for ALL of our band members who seek leadership training.

Students will need to work out transportation to leave on time.

There is no cost for this workshop.

If your student would like to attend, please respond to this email. I will also offer the opportunity to sign up in class and will confirm registration list via email.

Fridays Practice
Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

Due to the sheer awesomeness of the SOTC, I am canceling tomorrow’s practice! Have a fantastic night off. Please remember we are playing the Run4Jeremy Saturday morning with an 8:00 am call time in red show shirts and shorts or pants and tennis shoes.

Wedding details
Friday, September 12th, 2014

Yesterday I met with the students who are playing the wedding and provided these details, wrote them in an email and neglected to hit send. Please let me know if you have any questions. Later, I will send a map and specific instructions for how to get to the chapel.

4th Block Wind Ensemble Marching Brass and percussion students should meet Mrs. Carlsen in the upper parking level of the Chapel area at Callaway, directions to come, at 10:30 a.m. on this Saturday morning.

Students transportation will need to STAY in the parking lot and wait until we are done.
The area is too small and will be too congested and we will need to move our vehicles out first and quickly. Please DO not drop your student off and leave. Carpooling is encouraged.

We will pre-load instruments Friday night after the game. The Carlsens will drive the battery equipment.

Students need to take instruments home after the game, Friday and will be responsible for bringing it and their music to the event, except battery.

At 10:30 we will meet and organize and wait, move SILENTLY into position at 11:00 p.m., play at 11:10 a.m. and then immediately leave.

Students and their driver will be admitted to the event by stating they are attending the Keidel-Chambliss Wedding. You will be able to stay in the park the rest of the day and enjoy any of its amenities that do not require additional cost. The Carlsens will picnic and go to the butterfly house with Lynnlea. You are welcome to join us.

Students who can not attend should have already notified me and found a replacement player. Thanks for helping us with this really cool and easy fundraiser, doing what the kids do best!

Thank you!
