Greetings Trojan Band Fans!

Our Mulch delivery day yesterday was a huge success!  Susana Campos and Julie Ton were our AMAZING parent organizers of the mulch drive and their hard work yielded a smooth fundraiser and delivery day.  From the online orders, to the extensive routing of the deliveries, to the HUGE amounts of food donations secured to keep our mulch volunteers going all day – These ladies did amazing work.  ALSO – MAJOR THANKS to the PARENTS that stepped up to drive box trucks, drive follow cars and all of our STUDENTS that lifted (and are probably very sore) the mulch in delivery!  The fundraiser yielded mulch sales of roughly $14,000 and a profit of just over $8,000 for the band.  Thank you to all who supported us in our Mulch-a-thon!

Coming up for the Band:

We will be hosting Middle School UIL at the AISD PAC on Tuesday and Wednesday.  If you have signed up for a shift you will be receiving information tomorrow regarding details.

HAVING CONCERT UNIFORM ISSUES?  Ms. Meyer will be in this Wednesday, March 7, during FIT to address ANY uniform issues you have.  This is your last chance to get these fixed before our Pre-UIL concert the Tuesday after Spring Break so sign up for the FIT or email Ms. Gonzalez to get in touch with Mrs. Meyer.  PLEASE do not wait until concert day as Mrs. Meyer will not be available to trouble-shoot.

March 8 – THIS Thursday, the Texas A&M Kingsville Trombone Studio will be visiting Anderson to give all Trombone, Euphonium and Tuba players a concert and masterclass!  This will take place from 9am-10am and we will field trip all non-wind ensemble students so you don’t miss out.  Donuts and juice will be served as well and our Murchison Middle School low brass friends will be joining as well.

WIND ENSEMBLE – See separate blast post at 4pm for March rehearsal schedule.  

March 19 – Anderson Band Boosters Meeting at 6:30 in the Band Hall!  Parents please attend – you can see what all this fundraiser money goes to and how our band operates!

March 22 we will have our Pre-UIL concert in the Anderson Theater at 7pm.  Parents welcome!

TODAY (Sunday, March 4) at 4pm our very own Tessa Goeser will be performing with the Texas Youth Wind Symphony at the Bates Recital Hall at UT.  You can go online and watch the live webcast here.  This is a group that is an ‘honors’ wind ensemble made up of the best players in the Austin, Leander, Westlake, Hays, Pflugerville areas set by audition.  I would love to see more students from Anderson audition and get involved next year.  Hop on the webcast to support Tessa and check it out!

Thanks for your support of the Trojan Band – have a great week!

Ms. G
