Percussion Ensemble Update 1-27-17

Percussion Ensemble,

Just a reminder that rehearsal will be on TUESDAY this week! This will present some potential conflicts for students involved in the Winter Colorguard and Pep Band, and so we’ll do our best to make sense of things in this update. Please check the schedule below, as it will be different than the past few weeks:

6:00-6:30 — Synco la Groovo (ONLY snares, tenors, and bass drums! All others don’t need to come until their other song)
6:35-7:20 — La Bamba
7:25-8:10 — Aruban Jam
8:15-9:00 — Concerto in A Minor

Color guard members should do the following:
Morgan, Kassidy, Scout – stay for La Bamba ; go to guard at 7:20
Noelia — start at guard and come to percussion at 8:00

Pep Band members can go for the performance and come back when finished.

Since we are only doing 30 minutes on Synco la Groovo — those members absolutely need to arrive on time (i.e. EARLY) to get drums set up so we can start immediately at 6:00. Thank you for your cooperation in making that happen!

Have a great weekend and see you TUESDAY!
Mr. Tanzos

Percussion Ensemble Update 1-23-17

Percussion Ensemble,

Our next rehearsal is on WEDNESDAY, January 25th. We will make a SLIGHT adjustment to the schedule for this week — times will remain the same, however only a few people will need to come out to rehearse La Bamba. Only those members listed need to be present, as we want to spend that time working with those people in small groups. Everyone else on that song will just need to come for your other song that day:

6:00-6:45 – La Bamba (ONLY Bells, Vibes, Xylophones, Hi-Hat/Sus. Cym)
6:45-7:30 – Synco la Groovo
7:30-8:15 – Aruban Jam
8:15-9:00 – Concerto in A Minor

Lastly, we are selling black “Whitehall Percussion Ensemble” polos if you would like to buy one to wear for performances. Please note that you are NOT required to get one — you may simply wear a plain black shirt for your performances if you wish. Polos are $15 and run BIG. If you wish to purchase a polo, please complete the following form by the end of the day on WEDNESDAY so that I can place the order.

You do not need to pay for the shirt until delivery.

Thank you and see you Wednesday!
Mr. Tanzos
