Finals Postponed until next Sunday 

“Due to weather and safety concerns we will delay the show until next weekend (Nov 9). The show will take place at Lawrence Stadium and more information will be sent to bands on Monday morning. Thank you.”


Mr. Repucci adds…

Stay home today and enjoy not being out in this weather! I would suggest taking a small amount of this new free time to work on the things we talked about in practice yesterday. Polish, polish, polish… The band that stays focused for this extra week will have the edge at Finals. This extra time could be a blessing in disguise…

We will practice this week with our normal Wed/Sat schedule.
