Does anyone have a piccolo they’d be willing to let me borrow for the marching season/possibly school year? My budget isn’t quite allowing me to purchase a good quality one this year (hopefully next).
Does anyone have a ME or E version of We Didn’t Start the Fire by Billy Joel or Blaze of Glory by Bon Jovi? There are some mash-ups that exist, but I haven’t found an arrangement of each of them alone. PLEASE let me know if anyone has an arrangement of these!
Hello District 1!
My name is Angela Schmitt, and I am the new Band Director at Morley Stanwood. I’m very excited to be entering such a great district, and I can’t wait to meet everyone in person. I just wanted to thank you all so much for being so welcoming. It truly means a lot!
Does anyone have a bari sax we could rent/borrow for marching season next year? Thanks!
I am inviting you to consider adding an event to your fall calendar.
The “White Cloud Glow Show Invitational” will occur on October 21st. Start time will be adjusted due to moon placement, and darkness. I am projecting a 7:20PM start time. However, that may be altered depending on how dark it is. Sunset is scheduled for 6:50PM, and the moon is at 3% visibility on that date. We need it to be as dark as we can get for the performance to be spectacular.
The invitational is more of a showcase, and not an adjudicated event, for obvious reasons. We have found that shows do not need to be altered in anyway in order for this performance to be successful. By putting the event later in October, it puts us past all major competitions/festivals and leaves us in a true time-frame to do something we sometimes forget…to just have fun.
Their is no cost for this event, we originally charged for glow sticks, but with rising cost of transportation we will pay that fee for you so that you can attend. If you would like to provide your own glow sticks for this event you are welcome to add more!!! We have done this a few years, so you may want to take my thoughts on this with what kind to use, and how to attach.
Obviously, I am using this as a fundraiser (admission/concessions/t-shirts/merchandise). The bands should not be charged to participate.
I am anticipating running this similar to most competitions we participate in, however…You may find that this late in the season and in the spirit of this event, you may want to do a short on field warm-up. The kids will DEFINITELY want to see the other groups perform.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. This will be our second time hosting this and we hope to continue to make it “bigger and better”. We are limiting the number of bands to 8 this year, first come first serve.
If you think this is for you, please let me know soon.
This is designed to be an exciting and fun event, as well as stress relief at the end of a long season. There is a good chance of fireworks also 😉
