Be sure to check out the BAND WEBSITE for more information.
Throughout the week we will spend time reviewing material (music and marching) that we covered at spring rehearsals and summer sectionals, but a majority of the time will be spent learning new material. Not only do we plan to ensemble the opener (winds & percussion) we also plan to learn a few sets of drill as well! Please plan to be on time everyday and prepared to work. Any absence must be pre-approved by Mr. Hutchison or Mr. Finkbeiner. From this point on, all marching band rehearsals are MANDATORY and part of your marching band GRADE.
