Happy New Year all Band Parents and Students. Please take notice of a few changes to the
calendar. The boosters will be updating the CHARMS calendar and the website as well as
posting on Facebook these changes.

• The Symphonic Camp that is scheduled on MLK weekend, January 18th and 19th, has
been CANCELLED due to clinician availability. All students will have guest clinicians and
many more guests visiting during class and afterschool rehearsals in the preparatory
months before concert festival and jazz festival. The Boosters will update the Band
Calendar and send CHARMs emails with rehearsal dates and times.

• Parents and Students, please review the BAND SPRING CALENDAR, there are several
afterschool rehearsals from 4-6pm for each SOA HS ensemble. These are mandatory and
for a grade. Plan accordingly with a lite snack or extra water bottle on these dates. The
Boosters will not be providing pizza or food during these after school rehearsals.
