Spring Concert/Uniforms

Mark your calendars!  The Spring Concert is Friday, May 17th at 6:30pm in the Analy Auditorium. Tickets are $7 for Adults, $5 for Students and Senior Citizens, Children under 5 are free.  The Concerts are fundraisers for the Analy Band & Orchestra program.  We ask you to invite your family and friends, tell your neighbors and volunteer!  More information about the Spring Concert coming soon.

Your students will NOT wear their uniforms at the Spring Concert.  Maestro and the ensembles will decide on themes and dress accordingly.

If your student is NOT continuing with Band and/or Orchestra next year, they need to return their uniform.  This is ONLY for Seniors or those students who are definitely NOT going to be part of the Instrumental Music Program next year, everyone else should keep their uniforms.

Please have your student turn in ALL pieces of their uniform directly to Janis by May 10th.  She has a checklist that needs to be marked off.

You do not have to have the uniform dry cleaned – just have your student turn in their uniform with a check for $20 made payable to Analy Band Wagon.  For dresses only, the cost is $15.  You may choose to dry clean the uniform yourself, in that case, return it in the dry-cleaning bag with the receipt.

If there are missing uniform pieces, you will need to pay to have that piece replaced.  If your student does not turn in their uniform by May 10th, a notice of the debt will be submitted to the administration.  They will then place a hold on your student’s account which will affect Graduation tickets for Seniors and registration schedules in the Fall for all other students.

Below is a list of uniform items that need to be returned and the replacement cost.

LIST OF UNIFORM ITEMS & COSTS

Black tuxedo pants    –    $30

White tuxedo shirt    –    $15

Black tuxedo jacket (if your student is in Symphonic Band and/or Orchestra) –   $65

Black dress (if your student is in Symphonic Band and/or Orchestra) –  $80

Blue cummerbund   –    $10

Blue vest   –   $30

Blue bow tie   –   $3.50

3 shirt studs –  .50¢ each

2 cuff links    –   $1 each

Garment Bag   –  $4

If your student has an issue with their uniform (ex. too small or too big) and IS continuing in the band/orchestra program next year just have them hang on to it until the beginning of school.  This is to allow for any changes in size over the summer.

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

Thank You!

CMEA Results

This past Saturday April 27th, the Analy Symphonic Band and Orchestra attended the California Music Educators Association Festival in Benicia. The CMEA Festival is an adjudicated, large-ensemble festival where each ensemble is judged on performing three pieces and a sight-reading selection.

The Analy Symphonic Band, the flagship concert band of Analy High School, scored a “Unanimous Superior” ranking (Four Superior markings for our performance and sight-reading).  This is the highest possible score – a rare and prestigious honor!  The last time the Analy Honor Band received a Unanimous Superior rating was in 2012.  This is Maestro Kevin Stewart’s first Unanimous Superior rating as a music educator and he is so very proud of the Symphonic Band!

The Analy Orchestra performed three very challenging pieces at the Festival and received three Excellent’s and a Superior rating.  The Orchestra performed very well and Maestro is extremely pleased with this outcome!

Congratulations to Maestro Kevin Stewart and all of the students who performed at the CMEA’s!  All of the Symphonic Band students are eligible for a ribbon and pin commemorating this accomplishment.  For questions about purchasing the ribbon and pin, please contact Janis Snyder, Program Coordinator, (707) 824-2337 or coordinator@analybandwagon.org.
