Month: January 2016
The Concert Band was exceptional at the performance for the students today. See you tomorrow night. Kids at 6:30; show at 7:00pm. Since there is very limited space inthe auditorium (and we have such a big band YAY!) Concert Band members will leave right after their part of the concert. You should be done by 7:15pm.
I hope you all had a very nice vacation. I hope everyone’s ready to practice because after our Winter Concert, there is little time to prepare for our Annual Burlington All-Town Band Concert. It will be in March and include all bands from every school in the town. All of the fourth graders will play together in one big band (includes Francis Wyman, Pine Glen, Fox Hill and Memorial students), while all of the 5th graders will perform together as well. We will also hear the Middle school bands (yes, including our Concert Band) and the High School will play for us also. The concert will end with a grand version of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy,” played by every band student in the town. We are really looking forward to this!!!! More info to follow.
Keep the date open for our Middle School winter concert on January 28, 2015. Concert will start at 7:00pm. Students will report at 6:30. The Concert Band is to wear plain white tops and dark bottoms.
We will be playing: The Hanging Tree (from the movie: The Hunger Games), The Notre Dame Fight Song and Furioso.
Please practice these pieces. Recording can be heard if you click: Winter Concert recordings 2016.
