August Marching Band Reminders

August 23, 2017

 

Represent

Entertain

Have Fun

Don't Get Hurt

We created this motto 'on the fly' a few years ago.  At the time, we all thought it was funny, but none of us realized what a good job we had done.  Four years later, I continue to marvel at how well it captures our marching band mission and priorities, even as our program grows.

We had an awesome band camp this year.  Everyone was focused and respectful during rehearsals.  Everyone did their best to positively contribute to creating an entertaining show.  I think everyone had fun, and we only had one significant injury.  (One more than I'd like, but accidents happen...)

I need everyone to remain focused as we transition to our evening rehearsals and prepare for our first public performances.

 

Before our next evening rehearsal, please:

  • Listen to the show music (https://www.cavmusic.com/marching-band) at least twice.

  • Spend as much time as necessary to re-memorize the show music.

  • Play the show music from memory with the CavMusic.com recordings at least three time in a row without making a mistake.  (Yes - the ENTIRE show.)  Is this hard?  Yes.  Can you do it?  Yes.

Finally - several folks let me know that there were unaware of some upcoming events.  I understand that we're constantly bombarded with information, but here's how you can stay informed:

  • Rehearsals and performance dates were included in the information that students and parents received last April.

  • Check out the calendar at Cavmusic.com and/or http://www.carrollcountyathleticleague.org/public/genie/389/school/6/

  • Reminders, details, and any changes will alway be sent via email, Remind 101, via Facebook and can be found on Cavmusic.com.
