Dear Marching Bruin Band Parents & Students,
Happy Monday and I hope everyone had an amazing FIRST day of school. We started off the day on an amazing note with our mighty, amazing Drum line! Thank you so much to our Drum line students for the early wake up and great performance today. I greatly look forward to making music this week in our in-school band classes as well!
I wanted to provide a quick update regarding some schedule changes with the Football Game originally slated for this Friday night at Forest Park, and touch base regarding the Pep Rally taking place at 1 PM during school on Friday.
The Marching Bruin Band will also begin our normal rehearsal schedule of rehearsing 5 – 8 PM on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Night.
Football Game Schedule Change & Band Exemption
The Varsity Football Game originally slated for on August 27th (Friday Night) at Forest Park High School has been rescheduled to the night prior on, Thursday Night, August 26th at Patriot High School. Due to the short notice of the game change as well as the long distance on a school night during the first week of school, the band has been exempted from participating at this AWAY Game. Traditionally, the Marching Bruin Band does not travel to AWAY Games unless it is already on our calendar. In short, we will continue our normal rehearsal from 5 – 8 PM on Thursday and in leu of the Football Game that was suppose to be on Friday, we will rehearse from 5 – 7 PM on Friday, August 27th.
Friday Pep Rally
On Friday, August 27th at 1 PM, the Marching Bruin Band will perform for the students and faculty at the annual Pep Rally. Marching Band students will be excused from their classes at 12:15 PM and report to the Band Room for their instruments. The Pep Rally is slated to take place outside in the Football stadium and the Marching Band students will perform portions of STEVIE 70 and Pep Band tunes. Students should wear whatever spirit wear they choose to help elevate the energy and performance!
