Dear Marching Bruin Band Parents & Students,
Happy Monday and I hope everyone had an a relaxing weekend after the first week of school. I wanted to provide a quick update regarding the Football Game on Thursday night at Forest Park, and touch base regarding Back to School Night on Tuesday Evening in relation to our Marching Band Rehearsal.
Back to School Night – Tuesday (08/31/2021)
The Marching Bruin Band will run it’s normal rehearsal time from 5 – 8 PM on Tuesday evening. Back to School Night and the MBB rehearsal only conflict for about an hour from 7 – 8 PM, in which our Battery Coordinator Nick Ro will run rehearsal in my (Mr. Davern’s) stead. I greatly look forward to seeing many parents of the Bruin Band Boosters at Back to School Night!
First Home Football Game – Thursday (09/02/2021)
The Marching Bruin Band will be performing Pep Band selections as well as our show STEVIE 70 for the first time at the first Home Football Games vs Potomac High School. Students should report ready to dress in uniform, with a white t-shirt, black athletic shorts, black socks and dinkles. Students should also have dinner at home and report to school at approximantly 5 PM to get into Uniform. At 6 PM, the MBB will move to the Back Lot to Warm Up and then move to the stadium around 6:45 for a Pre-Game performance of the Fight Song and National Anthem. The MBB will then move to the Band section on the Home sideline until it is time to perform STEVIE 70 at Halftime. After the Halftime performance, students will return to the Band section, enjoy a 3rd Quarter snack, and continue to perform Pep Band selections for the remainder of the Game. Football Games generally end 2 and half to 3 Hours after Kick Off, so please plan to pick up students around 9:30 PM. We will also continue to monitor for inclement weather and keep you updated on the state of the game.
