TWIB Notes – SPRING CONCERT EDITION (Week of May 7, 2018)

Good Afternoon,

Sorry that these are getting out so late this week. I typed them yesterday morning…and realized, today, that I never sent the email.

So, here are this week’s notes and reminders…

SPRING CONCERT is this Wednseday, May 9th at 7:00 PM in the CHS Auditorium. The Concert will feature performances by the Jazz Band, Concert Band, and Wind Ensemble. Students should wear their regular concert attire for their respective ensemble. Wind Ensemble students should bring a change of clothes, as we will be collecting tuxes and dresses after the concert. Call times are as follows:

Jazz Band – 5:30 PM

Concert Band – 6:15 PM

Wind Ensemble – 6:30 PM

Please, invite family, friends, neighbors…whomever to come out and hear the concert. The students have worked hard in preparing for this concert. Let’s fill the auditorium!!

Music In The Parks this Saturday, May 12th from 7:00 AM – 2:00 PM. We need 3-4 adults and 8-10 students to work the festival. Students earn community service hours!! Sign up in CHARMS or on the sign-up sheet in the Band Room (or email me) if you are able to help out.

Looking ahead…The Annual Band Banquet will be held next Tuesday, May 15th, at 6:00 PM in the CHS Commons (Please see email from Julie Bean). Everyone is invited to join us for an evening of food and fellowship in celebration of the accomplishments of all of our Band Students.

Also, keep your eyes and ears open!!! Information will be coming out soon about meetings, clinics, and sign-ups for the 2018-19 Royal Brigade Marching Band! The Band Camp schedule, along with most of the fall schedule, is already posted on the calendar in CHARMS.

We still need volunteers for the KOP Bingo events (Parents and/or students). We, typically, need 4-5 people to work each event. The times are Sundays from 12:00-3:00 PM and Mondays from 5:00-8:00 PM. You can earn points (5 per person) for your band account, earn community service hours, and get a free meal. For more information, or to sign up, email Josh LeBlanc at With the number of families we have in the CHS Band Program, we could cover every KOP Bingo if each family committed to working just two events per year (6 hours, providing 2 workers).

Here is this week’s schedule:
