- May 8th Event Updates – We are still working out just a few last minute details for this event. Right now, the plan is to have the performance, followed by a lunch event. Exact times for the event will come shortly. Also, due to the governor’s recent audience limitations on music and theatre events, we may hold two performances of the show back to back so that all parents, siblings, and friends can have a chance to watch. I will have those details out by the end of the week.
We will also be combining that evening with our annual band awards night after the performance has ended. Remember, band awards night is when we honor ALL band members for their accomplishments throughout the school year. So that means all band members (not just marching members) are invited to attend this event. Students, please fill out the following google form so that we may gather the needed information to properly honor each student. Also, please cast your vote for the John Philip Sousa Award for senior band members. Lastly, since many of our usual band events didn’t occur this school year due to COVID, we will be giving out multiple, fun superlative awards. These are write-in votes, and I ask that students help us to honor each other and have a good time!
- 2021 Drum Major/Drum line/Section Captain Info – On Thursday May 13th from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. We will be holding auditions for the 2021 Marching Eagles Drum line and Drum Major. Drum Line will audition from 3pm to 4pm, with Drum Major auditions starting at 4:00pm. Students interested in applying for section captain must have their completed applications turned in to me by that same date. I have attached all audition and application materials to this email (drum line audition music will be in by the end of this week), please let me know if you have any questions.
- Fall 2021 Marching Registration – Please do not forget to register for the fall 2021 Marching Eagles. I highly look forward to returning to a (hopefully) regular marching season filled with great memories and pride! Also, registering early helps the marching staff greatly with the design process.
