All Bands & Orchestra – Message from Maestro

Dear Parents and Families,

I would like to personally invite you and all your friends and relatives to attend our upcoming Winter Concert this Friday, Dec. 15, 2017 @ 6:30pm in the Analy Theatre. A semester’s worth of rehearsals leads up to this performance, and your students have worked very hard to create a fun and entertaining culmination of months of hard work. They are excited to perform for you, especially since we missed our Fall Festival performance this year!

Your attendance at the Winter Concert has a great impact on student morale. Every student wants and deserves an audience at their performance and your presence shows them that you value all the time and effort they have spent honing their craft. After working so hard towards the goal of this concert, an audience full of family and friends gives our ensemble a fulfilling completion to their semester-long efforts. I hope that you can come and stay for the full concert to support all the students in our bands and orchestra!

Your students must stay for the entire concert in order to receive full credit, and this is for the same reason: to support and show up for each other. Please encourage and enable your students to stay for the duration of the concert. Thank you for your ongoing support of music education at Analy. We look forward to seeing you on Friday! Again, please invite your relatives, friends and neighbors!

Warmly,

Maestro Kelly Stewart

As many of you know we are gearing up for our 1st Annual Mattress sale taking place on December 3rd! This is an incredible opportunity for us to earn a great deal of money without having to ask the parents and kids to sell anything.  This fundraiser has helped raise over $26 million dollars for school programs all across the country and we are very excited to have the opportunity to host our own event.

It is VERY IMPORTANT that we communicate the details of this event with EVERY parent in order to maximize our results and earn the most money.

We will be conducting a mandatory meeting on Thursday, November 16th at 7:00pm that we are requiring ALL music program parents to attend.

We realize that as parents you have very busy schedules, but this is a meeting that CANNOT be overlooked.

If you have a student that participates in the music program at Analy High School, you must attend this meeting.

As a part of our upcoming fundraiser, the company that we are working with is donating $5 to the Music Program for every parent in attendance at this meeting!

The meeting will be held in the Analy High School Music Room at 7:00pm on Thursday, November 16th.

We look forward to seeing all of you at the meeting.

Bands & Orchestra – Disneyland Trip Info

Hello Disneyland Families,

Many of you and your students are wondering whether the Disneyland trip is a go for the 2017-18 school year.  It is with deep regret that we will not be making the trip this year.  There are not enough students in the band/orchestra program interested attending the trip.   We extended an offer to band students from El Molino High School to join us.  Although we received some interest, it was still not enough for us to reach the required minimum.  Please know that we made every effort to make the Disneyland trip happen.  We will try again for the 2018-19 school year.

There will be an end-of-the-year trip to either Six Flags or Great America.  Information regarding this trip will be sent out in the Spring.

If you have any questions, please contact Dawn in the band/orchestra office at 707-824-2337 or by email coordinator@analybandwagon.org.
