OSSAA District Solo/Ensemble Contest Saturday, February 24

Click to Sign Up - Volunteers for OSSAA

Volunteers Needed - Saturday, February 24 - CLICK THE BUTTON ABOVE!

Each year, Shawnee hosts the OSSAA District Solo/Ensemble contest. Many schools come to this event and it has been very well run for many years at Shawnee Middle School. That is only because of the great workers we have at the contest site. The majority of our workers are STUDENTS, and we need more of you to sign up to work this year.
  • The contest will begin promptly at 8:00am and end around 3:00pm. Each student can have the opportunity of working one shift (out of two) or work the whole day.
  • First shift will begin with a meeting at 7:30am and end at 12:00pm.
  • The second shift will have a meeting at 11:45am and will end once the contest is over and rooms are put back away.

Yankee Candle Fundraiser

All forms have been sent in. They give a 21 day turn around. Once I know the exact delivery date we will announce it! Thank you for working on getting supporters for the SHS Band! 

Morning Rehearsals

Wind Ensemble is meeting in Brackeen and Symphonic Band is meeting in the band room. If location of rehearsals change, we will send out plenty of notice.

We will continue our 8:15am rehearsals. The extra 30 minutes will help tremendously in preparing the music we are doing this semester. Please, plan transportation accordingly.

Wednesday's we will begin at 8:45am due to the late start days. 


Musical Pit Sectionals

The music this year includes a real live pit, again! The members of this pit will need to get together and rehearse the music before our performances on March 2-3. We will meet on Tuesday & Thursdays at 7:45am in the band room to work on this music. We briefly mentioned that we may try and go to some extra dress rehearsals after school this Thursday and Friday. Any of us that can make it will need to be there, however, if you have a conflict you cannot get out of, don't stress it. Dress rehearsals are in the Auditorium from 4pm-6pm. Next week will be THE week we are completely involved. Every day after school 4pm-6 or later if necessary. Performances are March 2 (1 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon, 1 in the evening) and March 3 at 7pm. 
Tuesday 2/20 - 7:45am-8:30
Thursday 2/22 - 7:45am-8:30, 4pm-6
Friday 2/23 - 4pm-6pm
