All Bands – Apple Blossom Parade Information

Hi Band Families,

As most of you already know the combined bands (Intermediate, Advanced & Honor) will be marching in the Apple Blossom Parade this Saturday, April 22nd.  All Band Students (not Orchestra) should arrive at the band/orchestra by 7:30am.  Once they arrive, students should get their instrument and hat then proceed to the track by the football field.  Please do not be late!  The parade starts at 10:00am

There is a mandatory rehearsal for all bands during tutorial on Thursday, April 20th.  Students are required to come for the entire tutorial time.  It is important that everyone makes the “mandatorial” as this will be the first time that all bands are marching together.

Students are to wear their marching uniforms.  This includes their all black tuxedo pants, white tuxedo shirts, bow tie, cuff links, studs, all black socks, all black closed shoes and their vest.  A couple of things to keep in mind regarding the marching uniforms.  The vest and shirt should be ironed.  Ladies the white shirt is sheer so please wear neutral undergarments.  Also, it is very important that shoes and sock be ALL BLACK.  It is very obvious when marching if both socks and shoes aren’t matching.  We do have band shoes that students can rent out, just let Dawn know if you are interested.

Things to bring the day of…sunglasses (not oversized), sunscreen and water bottle.  Please eat a good breakfast.

Please remind those students that will be driving themselves not to park in the student parking lot the day of the parade.  Since we are one of the first to perform, students will not be able to get out of the parking lot when they are done performing.

Those of you who have offered your pick-up trucks the day of the parade, thank you!  I will be contacting you directly in the next couple of days.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Dawn in the band/orchestra room at 824-2337.
