SCHS Band - Week 9 Run-Down (Gig Sheet, Parent Volunteer Sign-Ups, Etc.)

Greetings SCHS Band Families,
 
It was great to see so many of you at our fall semester band parent and student meeting last Thursday. As you would imagine, the band members are so excited about the performance invitation to the 89th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade in 2020. 
 
We have lots of things going on this week, including a jazz band concert, drumline performance at Stewarts Creek Elementary, our last regular season home football game, senior night, and other things here and there.

What follows is the gig sheet for the week, a sign-up sheet for parent volunteers, and a few announcements and reminders.

  • SCHS Music Boosters Raffle Updates - This is the last push for sales. Thank you to those families who have sold their tickets. We need all monies or unsold tickets to be turned into the band room black box with the band member's name by this Wednesday (10/23). Should you have any questions about this fundraiser, please contact the booster club at schsmbinc@gmail.com or call 615-625-2184. 

  • SCHS Jazz Bands In-Concert - Join us for a night of jazz standards as the members of the Stewarts Creek High School Jazz Bands take the stage in a fall performance. The concert takes place this Tuesday (10/22) at 7:00 PM. Call time for jazz band members will be 6 PM dressed in Jazz Band Attire (see the SCHS Band Handbook on the band website for information on Jazz Band Attire).

  • Drumline Performance (Battery and Front Ensemble) - We have been asked by Stewarts Creek Elementary to perform for the arrival of a member of the Tennessee Titans who will visit the elementary school on Tuesday (10/22). Members of the drumline will be coded as field trip. This will take place during school at 9:30 AM. Drumline members should wear the band polo shirt and blue jeans for this performance. We will return to SCHS at the conclusion of the performance. 

  • We have only one ASR this week on Thursday (10/24). The rehearsal will start at 4:30 PM. Members involved with the SCHS Choir will attend rehearsal at 5:15 PM. Rehearsal will end at 6:30 PM for all members.

  • This Friday (10/25) is senior night at SCHS. Because we have a large number of seniors in various activities (football, cheer-leading, dance, flag-runners, and JROTC) the band is going to have their senior night recognition at half-time, instead of during pre-game. This presentation will take place on the field with all senior band parents and family members before the band plays their half-time performance.  Senior band members were given a letter today to give to parents which serves as your ticket to the event. See the gig sheet for additional information.
Request for Parent Volunteers
  • The SCHS Band is in need of some parent volunteer help for our away football game. Click the link below to sign-up. If you find that all slots have been filled for a particular area, please feel free to still come-by and help out. There is always something that needs to be done.
 
That's all for now. As always let us know if you have any questions.
