6:20-6:45 Synco La Groovo
6:45-7:45 Take On Me
7:45-8:20 Aruban Jam

Attached is an updated Part Assignment list with Take On Me completed. Please check for your part assignment and print out your designated part. Remember that EVERYONE plays on Take On Me. Also included in this update is a recording of the song for you to listen to and practice with.

If you ordered a polo, they should be in this week. Please be sure to bring payment of $15 cash or check (payable to “Whitehall HS Band Fund”) to receive your shirt.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

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

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
