Here is the paper we discussed in class today. Use it in your blogs and compositions.
Our High School Band has qualified to participate in the MSBOA State Band and Orchestra Festival. After much discussion we have decided that the best date to attend State’s on is May 2nd at Big Rapids High School. Specific time will be announced later but I think we can safely say it will be in the afternoon or evening. Because the band is traveling to Big Rapids on the 2nd of May they will not be presenting our traditional spring concert in the Jaime Performing Arts Center this spring. You can catch members of the band performing at the Womans Club Honors Night and at the Womans Club Fundraiser on May 10. The entire band will of course be playing at Graduation and Memorial Day in May as well. We hope you will travel to States with the students and show your support! Admission to the event will be FREE!
Our Middle School Bands and Melodic Fusion will be performing on May 1st in the Jaime Performing Arts Center starting at 6:30 PM. The 5th-6th Grade students will be wearing black bottoms and black shoes along with white tops. The 7th-8th Grade students will be wearing black bottoms/shoes along with the purple polos made available through Band Boosters!
The High School Band this past weekend scored the highest ratings possible at the District 9 Band and Orchestra Festival – They received straight division one ratings from all four judges. There were three ratings earned in performance and one rating earned in the sight reading portion of the festival. Farwell Band has once again earned the privilege of traveling to state band festival the end of April. Nice job band, way to uphold tradition!
