Our first rehearsal will be Monday, November 27th from 2:45 pm – 4:00 pm in the MVMMS Band/Orchestra room. Rehearsals will take place every Monday [that there is school] from November 27th through May 21st unless otherwise announced. Students should be dropped off and picked up right before and after rehearsal. If transportation is an obstacle, please let me know so that I can help to arrange carpools. Please fill out this form if you need to or can help with carpooling.

Performance dates for the year will be –

Thursday, March 15th @ 7:00 pm – Band Night – MVMMS auditorium
Friday, May 25th @ 7:15 pm – Spring Pops Concert – Memorial Hall

In addition to the book we use in lessons, I would like students to also get the following book for their instrument to use in rehearsals.

Sound Innovations: Ensemble Development for Young Concert Band

I look forward to seeing everyone together for our first rehearsal in a couple of weeks! If you have any questions, please let me know.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Mr. Repucci
