The GBHS production of ‘Annie’ was this past weekend! It was a wonderful production that included many Instrumental Music students. Mr. Hutchison, Mr. Finkbeiner and the orchestra did a great job providing the music!

Marching Band Rehearsal - May 1
The Marching Band rehearsals begin this Thursday, May 1, from 6 - 9 pm!
Jazz Night - May 10! Volunteers are Still Needed
If you have never heard our jazz bands, they are fantastic! Jazz Night is a fun evening with great music. It is a very important fundraiser for our music department. Since we were unable to have the Mom2Mom sale this year, it is doubly important. We really need your participation! Please check your calendar and sign up on the Charms website for Jazz Night.
Tickets for Jazz Night are with jazz band students. If your student is not in jazz band and you want tickets, contact Stacey Tyckoski (see below). They will also be for sale at the door. Tickets are $10 in advance, or $12 at the door.
Tables are still available for interested sponsors to purchase. This a great way for local businesses to advertise in our community. If you are interested, or have any questions, please contact Stacey Tyckoski at (810)964-0756, or GBJazzband@gmail.com.
Spring Concert Reminder - May 7
The spring concert is on May 7. Having refreshments during intermission is a nice accompaniment to the evening. We have many open slots on Charms, please sign up to bring something. Also, remember there will be a brief Booster meeting between performances.
Graduation - May 29
The Wind Ensemble and Symphonic band play at Graduation. We need parent volunteers to chaperone the morning practice and the evening performance. Slots are available on Charms to sign up.
Attention Marching Band Parents
The Boosters are looking for volunteer(s) to be in charge of organizing dinner preparations next year. This entails feeding the band students and staff before football games and competitions. There are a lot of wonderful volunteers to work with in the kitchen, and very organized guidelines already set up. For more information, please contact Kelly Wells at firstname.lastname@example.org
