Hi District 1,

I hope someone had these pieces of music for MS Honor Band.  If you do could you please scan and email them and let me know?  Thanks.

 

Swashbuckler’s March by Mark Williams

Let Your Spirit Sing by Julie Giroux

 

African Festival by Quincy Hilliard  (scanned and emailed today)

To the Pied Piper by Himes  (hard copies mailed from Baldwin to Shelby)

At the Feast of Stephen by Scott Watson    (we had this a few years ago with Les Knott, do we still have the file?)

I’m working on your lists of MS honor band kids.  I don’t know if I’ll have it done this week, but sometime before this weekend is over, definitely.   I’ll email it out when done.

Any more changes?  Let me know.  Do you have any kids that play other instruments and would double if needed, to help instrumentation?  i.e. Alto sax to Tenor or Bari?  You know your kids and what they can handle…..

BTW  You missed an awesome weekend of inspiration, education, camaraderie and recharge at the Director Development Days in Dearborn.  There is something to be gained from attending, no matter how many years you have been teaching.  Next year….think about it.

Thanks,

Stephanie Purvis,

Hesperia
