Greetings Trojan Band Fans!

Thank you SO much for helping us hit our MULCH GOAL!!!  Now we need Tons and tons of volunteers for the coming Saturday!  Students needing community service or volunteer hours – or going for a leadership position in band next year this is a good opportunity!  CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP TO HELP WITH MULCH! We are still in need of several parent volunteers!

This week is UIL Concert and Sightreading Contest for the Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band and Concert Band!  CLICK HERE FOR THE SCHEDULES!  Parents – please feel free to come support us and watch our performances in both rooms.  I know it’s in the middle of the day, but it’s wonderful to have an audience cheering us on 🙂 **NOTE ON THE SCHEDULES that there are rehearsals as well.**

Congrats to the JAZZ BAND for an awesome performance at Temple Jazz Festival on Saturday!  They received superior ratings and outstanding soloists were Ty Nelson and Jung Gi Jung.  Congrats Jazz Band on an awesome performance!!

The April ABBA (Anderson Band Booster Assoc) Meeting has been MOVED from April 1 to April 8 – 6:30pm in the band hall.

SPRING BAND CAMP and the 2019 SHOW REVEAL are coming!!!  This is a different flavor of show than we have done in a while, and you are going to LOVE it!  We will reveal the new marching show at lunch on April 15!!!!  SPRING Camp (MANDATORY for all non-seniors regardless of band commitment next year) will be April 16, 17, 18 from 5pm-7pm with a parent show off in the Large Gym on the 18th at 6pm!!  Letter Jacket fittings will also be happening at Spring Camp this year for this year’s juniors on April 17 from 4-6pm (you will get your jacket in the fall of your senior year as is tradition).

Anderson City Limits (Mandatory for all band and guard students) is April 23 – every section (Including GUARD) will have a required performance spot sometime between 5pm and 7pm.  Jazz Band will perform, and we will be selling tacos from the food truck (YUM!!) and some AMAZING raffle tickets!  This is a super fun event that we hold to bring our band community of Murchison and Anderson together!  Stay tuned for details coming next week once we are doing with UIL and mulch!

All students that advanced to TSSEC (Texas State Solo and Ensemble) will have your state solo performance time on Monday afternoon (June 3).  Schedule comes out May 1 – and we will keep you posted.  For now, block June 3 off in your calendar.

That’s it for now!  Everyone have a wonderful week!
