Happy New Year News!

Dear Band Families,

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018 to all our Band Families!

It is hard to believe that 2017 is coming to end so quickly… What a fantastic year it was for our Band Program! Looking forward to the start of 2018 and all the events coming up until the end of the school year….

Now that you have had a chance to catch your breath, I would like to list a few of the events coming up in 2018…. As always, we need YOUR help to make these events a success!!!

First, we will be sponsoring Rhythm and Raffle on February 24th at North Royalton High School Cafeteria 1 (right by the PAC). This is a FAMILY event with dinner, basket raffles and performances by Middle School, High School and Baldwin Wallace jazz bands, combos, and ensembles….. It will be a great night of music!

But to host this event, we need help on our planning committees…. Please consider joining one of our committees…. Follow the SignUpGenius Link to read the committee descriptions and volunteer to help us plan the FUNDRAISING event for the Band Programs!

Second, in the near future, there will be a link available for volunteering to chaperone our band members to the Concert Contests. Stay tuned for more information….

Third, our school will host the STATE contest. We will need almost 100 parents to help us run the two-day event! Details will be coming out in March regarding the event!

Finally, we will be needing help with the Band Award Banquet in May…. Again more details to follow…

Please keep these events in mind as we wind down the Band Program season….

As always, thank you for your help and enjoy the rest of your time off. Happy 2018!
