MZB Summer Session – Thursday, June 29


I hope that your summer break has been treating you well! Just a friendly reminder that we have a Summer Session rehearsal on THURSDAY this week from 6-8 PM. Remember that this rehearsal is mandatory, UNLESS I have already received communication from you that you will not be present due to a previously scheduled commitment.

Please be sure to bring your revised music, instrument/equipment, water for breaks, and wear sneakers and comfortable clothes (which abide by the school the dress code).

Additionally, the Student Officers have organized some fun events for after our Full Band Summer Sessions this year! This week from 8:00-9:00 PM, we will host a “Game Night” in the Band Room. This is purely optional, but we do hope that many of you in attendance will consider staying for some fun with your fellow band members! Feel free to bring your favorite games (board, card, etc.) to share.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again on THURSDAY!
Mr. Tanzos

Curt Simmons Day Parade Details – June 3

Don’t forget that Saturday is the Curt Simmons Day Parade. I ask you to please take your instrument with you at the conclusion of Thursday’s High School Concert so that we can all report directly to the parade site on Saturday. I am also seeking a volunteer who can transport the banner to the parade site — if you have a larger vehicle and can do so, please let me know on Thursday. THE SCHOOL WILL NOT BE OPEN PRIOR TO THE PARADE! We will be meeting at the Shepherd of the Hills Church parking lot in Egypt by 10:45 AM. The parade will begin at 11:30 AM and we will likely be finished by 12 Noon or so at Egypt Memorial Park. At the conclusion of the parade, I will have the school open for 30 minutes if you wish/need to drop off equipment/instruments. Anything not returned immediately after the parade will need to be brought back another time. Attire is maroon band polo, black pants, and marching shoes. Please review Cheering for Whitehall and the WHS Fight Song. Drumline members, please also review this year’s Cadence.

Looking further ahead for those of you returning next season, please do not forget about our June Mini-Camp (June 6, 7, and 8), which will be our first time putting ALL members (new and returning) together to begin early preparations for the 2017 field show. Those rehearsals will be 6-9 PM. Also, on Wednesday, June 7, we ask that parents please attend a mandatory meeting in the HS LGI ROOM (*note the different location!) starting a 6:00 to go over all of the important paperwork, policies, and procedures for membership in the marching band. Please make every effort to attend!

Thank you!
Mr. Tanzos
