School Daze - Week of 2/29/16

WELCOME BACK from the February break...and the oscar goes to........

I hope this blog finds all students rested and ready for a very busy March and April for the Alvirne Music Department.   Hopefully, everyone has taken time to read the previous blog "Vacation and/or Staycation"  with all the dates - this week's blog will be short and sweet.

Senior members of Jazz Band, B Naturals, Alvirne Singers, Symphonic Band, Concert Band and Treble choir will be given a very LARGE envelope in class tomorrow (Monday 2/29/16).
This envelope and it's contents relates to Cabaret - parents ASK your senior about it!

The Jazz Band will be invovled in a "road show"  to Hudson Memorial on Thursday March 3, 2016. We'll be leaving Alvirne at 9:00 a.m. and returning to school around 11:00 a.m..

Incoming 9th grade band members and their parents will be involved in an informational meeting on March 10, 2016 from 6-8 p.m. in the music room. There will be a lot to cover about the upcoming 2016-2017 school year regarding the band program.

Parents - The Friends of Music General Meeting is March 3, 2016 @ 7:00 p.m.
The agenda will be a full one! We need everyone to show for this meeting and be informed first hand!

The Jazz Band and B Naturals will be heading to the annual UNH Clark Terry Festival on March 12, 2016. This is a full day of listening to various  middle and high school jazz bands perform as well as choirs. Our students will also be treated to some great College and Professional performances as well as intense clinics about the "Language of Jazz".

Tickets for Pasta Palooza will be distributed during the various performance classes tomorrow
