School Daze Week of 9/21/14

Hi Everyone,

It has been quite a while since I wrote on my blog.

It is time to "Catch UP!

School has been in session approximately 3 weeks and in that time the Alvirne High School Bronco Marching Band and Colorguard  has been busy. Wednesday Night rehearsals are in full swing, we have performed at 2 football games - AHS v. Pinkerton (Away) and AHS v. Keene (our first home opener). 3 Tunes have been performed and executed (still quite a bit of detail work but we are getting there). This week we will be re working the final tune "Come Sail Away". The plan is to have all 4 tunes done by tomorrow evening so that we can focus on the many details before the Salem Band Show.  Did I say Salem Band Show- YES, October 11 is fast approaching. I will be posting many more details in the next week.

Don't forget to check out our show from last Friday evening AHS v. Keene so that you cna work on your critique. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cdu1wDOHyGM

Practice logs and ensemble critiques are up and I am slowly getting all the grades inputed to Edline.

Other important events to keep in your Google Calendar are:

October 2, 2014 - Friends of Music General Meeting
There will be an introduction of a new fundraiser by a former band alum Emily Shuman and updated policy changes with regards to Volunteer Hours as well as some very important issues regarding finances.  Hopefully, many parents will be in attendance.
As I mentioned earlier I will be writing more about the Salem Band Show.

October will also bring us the 8th grade "step up" night - Frehsman, you remember that :-)

October 25 is the NHMEA Jazz All State Auditions as well as the annual Craft/ Vendor fair!

We can't forget the Woburn Parade on October 26 and Senior Night October 31!

October will be the month for everyone to visit the AHSMSIC.ORG Webpage and read Mr. B's Blog post.

OK - time to hang out with Mrs. B and "Catch Up" on todays events!

Thanks for reading.
Later,
Mr. B
