Schedule for 9/14 – 9/20
This is the schedule for Wednesday, September 14 to Tuesday, September 20.
Wednesday, September 14 – No band rehearsal during the school day………..BLOCK SCHEDULE. Our weekly rehearsal at the stadium will be held this evening. Students must be in their seat no later than 5:45 p.m. for this evening rehearsal. The entire drum line will rehearse with John this evening beginning at 5:00 p.m. in the high school band room. Students are to wear a white tee-shirt and dark shorts for this rehearsal so that I can see how the formations look from the stands. All aux. are also to dress the same.
Thursday, September 15 – Rehearsal for the instrumentalists will end at the conclusion of the school day. The aux. will practice until 4:00p.m.
Friday, September 16 – Rehearsal will end at the conclusion of the school day for everyone.
For this evenings home game
– Students must be dressed in their uniform and in their seat no later than 6:15 p.m. I suggest that you arrive no later than 6:00 p.m. Remember to bring your black band shoes and your black socks. You must also wear your band shirt under your uniform. Wear a pair of shorts so you can slip the uniform pants on easily. The students should be ready to leave the high school no later than 9:30 p.m. following this home football game. PARENTS – PLEASE WAIT OUTSIDE OF THE BAND ROOM FOR YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER. It is already quite congested in there after a performance. Absolutely no students (except those in the band) will be permitted to walk through the band room to get into the high school.
ALL SOPHOMORES AND JUNIORS ARE TO BRING COOKIES (at least two dozen) TO THE HIGH SCHOOL BAND ROOM WHEN THEY ARRIVE AT 6:00 p.m. (Use non-returnable containers. The cookies are for the after halftime refreshments for both bands.)
Saturday, September 17 – The Lakewood High School Band Festival begins at 7:00 p.m. Students are to report to the high school before 5:30 p.m. There are ten bands at this festival and Westlake performs eighth. I predict that we will not perform before 8:15 p.m. There is a “Parade of Bands” around the track prior to the start of the event. I hope we have a good representation of people from Westlake attend this festival. Try to sit near the fifty yard line and be sure to wear something that says “Westlake!” The students should be ready to be picked up at the high school before 10:00 p.m. on Saturday following the festival.
Monday, September 19 – Rehearsal will end at the conclusion of the day for the instrumentalists. The aux. will practice until 4:00 p.m. Work on the new routine.
Tuesday, September 20 – The entire band will rehearse until 3:30 p.m. today. EVERYONE MUST STAY. We are learning more new music for Homecoming. The Majorettes, Debonaires, and Demonettes will practice until 4:30 p.m.
ALL PERFORMANCES ARE MANDATORY!! IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE A COMPLETE PERFORMANCE AT ANYTIME WITHOUT EVERY STUDENT IN ATTENDANCE!
