TWIB Notes – Week of 9/18/17

Here are the TWIB Notes for this week…

The RBMB will have rehearsals on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 3:00-5:15 PM.

CBPA (Courtland Band Parents Association) will meet on Tuesday, September 19th, at 7:30 PM in the Band Room. Executive Board will meet at 6:30, prior to the general meeting.

The RBMB will participate in the Emerald Invitational Marching Band Clinic at Riverbend High School on Saturday, September 23, 2017. Call Time for ALL RBMB Members will be 10:00 AM. Our performance time is 1:25 PM. A detailed itinerary will be emailed out to all RBMB Members and Parents on Wednesday. Please come out and support the RBMB!!

Chair Placement Auditions for The Concert Band and Wind Ensemble will be held next Monday and Wednesday (during our scheduled class time). The format of the auditions will follow that of the VBODA District Band Auditions. Students will be required to perform selected major scales and/or rudiments, the chromatic scale, a prepared piece (distributed in class), and level appropriate sight reading. The specific requirements have been covered in class. If you have any questions about the requirements for these auditions, please email Mr. Leonard.

All Band Students are encouraged to use the time during Cougar AM to come to the Band Room and PRACTICE. I am more than willing to work with individuals or groups who want extra help. Section Leaders should consider using this time to meet with their sections to work on problem spots in the music (Marching Band, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, etc.).
