There are a few things to be aware of as we come into the end of the quarter.
First-all long term assignments are due before break. This includes scale projects in all ensembles and three reviews in jazz band. On the scale projects, of course, we hope that everyone passes all 12 scales but if you can't do that, you will get 10 points per scale. Get as many as you can to boost your grade!
Second-Deadline to sign-up for Solo & Ensemble Festival is THIS Friday. Remember, to sign-up for a solo, you must give me the name and email address of your pianist. I am required to submit this with your application. Also, parents, please consider helping at the festival by being a door monitor or runner. Each program is required to provide some helpers. Our people who have done this always say that they enjoy the experience. Here is the link to a signup genius to check it out and hopefully signup.
Finally, the Brass Band is performing at the KU Jazz Festival this Friday at 9AM in the Lied Center on the KU campus. They will perform before judges for ratings and comments. Members of the brass band meet at South at 6:45 AM to load the bus and head for Lawrence. Lunch will be provided. We should return to SMS around 1:30.
