Our 6th and 7th grade bands are currently preparing for their performances at the Sr. Hilary Invitational Band Festival held in New Orleans. This festival hosts schools from all over south Louisiana and has several locations and days. The bands all play three pieces that they have prepared for a panel of judges. The judges will rate the band on each song selection, with a 1 or "Superior" rating being the highest rating.
Our students have been working hard to refine their music for these performances so wish them luck!
Students should arrive to school in band uniform (maroon band polo tucked in, black dress pants, black belt, tall black socks, all black shoes). Please go to advisory as usual, eat breakfast, etc. We will call you out when it is time to report to the bandroom.
There is no cost for this field trip, it has been covered by the fundraised monies from the WFC fundraiser.
Students MAY NOT be allowed to participate in the band field trip if they have outstanding fundraiser money/band fees (so please clear these up) or significant referrals/write-ups for discipline issues.
Chaperones are welcome and greatly appreciated! Please indicate on the permission form if you are available. There may or may not be room on the bus, so please plan to follow the bus in your own vehicle.
**Notes for Chaperones for both Festivals** THANK YOU!!!!!
