Greetings!

I hope everyone had a fantastic break – getting back in the swing of things is always nice, too.  We have a lot going on this semester but it’s going to be great.

HAWAII Flight Manifests are posted in the band hall.  All students must check the spelling of their name and birthday.  The spelling of your name on that flight manifest must match the ID you will be using at the airport and as your travel.  VERY IMPORTANT.  I need all students to initial on the chart by end of the day TODAY (Tuesday).

Just an FYI – This THURSDAY Murchison will be coming throughout the day with all of their concert bands for clinics with the Anderson students and directors.  It is also PSAT testing for 9th graders.

Area Auditions are this Saturday at the University of Texas Butler School of Music.  Information and details at the bottom of this blast.

All students should have solos and ensembles at this point.  Solo and Ensemble is required for Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band on Feb 9.  More information to come.

POPS CONCERT January 29 at 7pm at Anderson.  All Bands participate.

Mulch drive is just around the corner!  Stay tuned and let’s get the neighborhood outfitted with Trojan Band MULCH!!!  Ordering will start in February and Mulch delivery will happen on March 2!!
