Winter Weather Concert Plans

December 16, 2008

Due to the early out today, the Junior High Band and Choir concerts tonight have been rescheduled for noon on Friday, Dec 19th.

The High School Band Concert is still on for Wednesday night!

In the event that that goes awry, our plan B for the high school concert is Thursday night.  If they both go awry, plan C is Friday night.  If all else fails, we’ll have it after break.  As of now, things look okay for Wednesday.

Please keep checking this site, as I will update it as soon as any information comes my way.

Pep Band Night Added

December 3, 2008

Due to last nights pep band being cancelled, I’m adding a night.  It will be Thursday, Dec 18th.  It will be neither an A or a B game, but an extra credit game.

While not specifically band related, the Madrigal choir performance at The Lodge this evening has been cancelled due to inclement weather. 

In related news, school will be dismissed today at 1:15 for the same reason.

And if you haven’t picked up your fruit yet, well, you may not want to do it today since we’re out early, but tomorrow would be great!

Pep Band Cancelled

December 2, 2008

Due to complications with the fruit sale, pep band has been cancelled for this evening, 12/2

Due to the Madrigal Choir performance at the Lodge this Wednesday, the normal first Wednesday of the month Band Booster meeting will be held on the 10th.

Due to the fact that many things in band occur outside of the normal school day, weather often interferes when it may not have interfered during school.  If you have any question on whether or not something is cancelled, be it pep band or jazz band practice, this is where it will be posted.

Pep Band Schedule

December 1, 2008

The dates for the 2008-2009 Pep Band season are as follows:

Pep Band A:  12/01, 12/08, 1/12, 1/27, 2/10

Pep Band B:  12/02, 1/08, 1/20, 2/5, 2/13

Hey, the font changed for some reason.

Pep Band is a part of the students grades, so attendance is important.  If someone is unable make a perfomance, switching with another member is allowed, I just need to know about it and approve it in advance.

 

Winter Concert

December 1, 2008

The Rockridge High School Band Winter Concert will be held on Wednesday, Dec 17th at 7:00 pm.  Call time will be 6:00pm.  There will be refreshments in the lobby after the concert.  Concert dress is all black for girls, and tuxes for guys (if you’re new to this, no, you don’t have to go out and buy a tux, we take care of that). 

This is a pretty big concert coming up.  The Jazz Band and Concert Band will be making their premier performances of the 2008-2009 school year.  Russian Christmas Music, a standard in the band repotoire, will be performed by the band.  This is an epic work, and one of the most commonly performed band pieces around this time of year.  We will close the concert with the annual favorite Sleigh Ride.  Continuing with a tradition we started last year, alumni will be invited to join the band to play the piece.  The concert band portion will be opening with a world premier performance of Movement 1 of the Riverside Suite, composed by our very own Mike Sederquist!
