Percussion Ensemble Update 4-3-17

Percussion Ensemble,

Just a friendly reminder that there is NO rehearsal this week. The next event for us will now be on TUESDAY, APRIL 11 — when we do our Friends and Family performance.

For April 11, ALL members should report for rehearsal at 6:00 PM, dressed in your “performance black” attire. We will rehearse from 6-7:30 or so, then gather up our stuff to move to the gym for our performance, which will begin at 8:00 PM. Those of you in colorguard will go to guard practice at 7:00.

Again, any and all friends and family are welcome to attend the event FREE OF CHARGE! It will be held in the High School Main Gym. Once the performances of the colorguard and percussion groups are done and everything is put away, we will be finished for the evening.

Thanks and have a great week!
Mr. Tanzos

Percussion Ensemble Update 3-10-17

Percussion Ensemble,

We have a BIG week upcoming, as we have our first performance at our home show competition on Saturday! We also have 2 (TWO) rehearsals this week…so please make sure you have your calendars marked.

For this week, I am asking that all members be present for the entire 6-9 PM block of rehearsal time on both MONDAY and WEDNESDAY. We will utilize these rehearsals as “dress rehearsals” of sorts, with the hope of practicing logistics of performing in the gym as well as getting organized with how we will move/set-up equipment for the performance.

For Saturday, please make sure that you have everything you need for your uniform: PLAIN black shirt OR Percussion Ensemble Polo, Black pants, and black (or as dark as you have) shoes. Official report time for Saturday will be 8:30 AM in the band room. We will gather our equipment and move to the AUX GYM for a brief rehearsal before other groups start to arrive and the show begins. We will be performing at 11:35 AM. After the performance, we will pack up our equipment, enjoy the other performances, support our Colorguard (who performs at 4:00 PM) and be on hand for assistance with running the show if need be. ALL MEMBERS NEED TO BE PRESENT FOR THE FULL EVENT — please block off that day on your calendar! I anticipate us being completely done by 6:30 PM, as long as everyone does their part to help.

Thank you, have a great weekend, and see you MONDAY!
Mr. Tanzos
