SHS Drumline Auditions...Graduation...Leadership Auditions....Finals....SUMMER!!!!

Morning Rehearsals

Rehearsals will begin at regular school times unless otherwise stated. 8:45am other than Wednesdays which are 9:20. ALL band members shall report to the band room 1st hour through the end of the year.

Sign Up For Marching Band

Obviously, the school needs you to enroll so that you can get credit, but the band program needs to know WHO we will have in marching band BEFORE the end of school. The show music is written, the Percussion book is being worked on, and next is the drill dots and guard work. IF you are in band NOW, fill our the form so we know if we expect you back or not! 

Summer Percussion Camp

July 16-20. This is where when our percussion students learn as much of their music as possible. Often times they get through the entire show in this week.
This week is mandatory for all percussion students 9-12 regardless if they are front ensemble or drum line. Mr. Cole Williams, Tulsa University percussion instructor, will be with us all week to teach our show! 


Summer Band 2017

If you are making summer plans, please do not schedule anything during Summer Band. We get much of our drill set, music learned, and marching spots on the field are earned during this time. These two weeks are mandatory for all band members grades 9-12. If there are any conflicts, contact a director ASAP (this will not guarantee the student will have a spot of the field for the show). 

We will begin with FRESHMEN AND LEADERSHIP ONLY on Monday, July 30, 2018 and then ALL BAND STUDENTS Freshmen through Seniors on Tuesday, July 31 2018. The schedule will be very similar to this past year, so be prepared for early mornings and some evening rehearsals.


Leadership Packets Due/Auditions

If you are trying out for a leadership position, packets are due this Wednesday, May 16. We will hold auditions over marching fundamentals on Monday, May 21. If you are auditioning for Drum Major, make sure you speak with Mr. Chandler on the requirements for the conducting portion of the audition which will also take place Monday, May 21. 

Drumline Auditions

Drumline auditions will be Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in the High School band room from 4pm-5:30pm. Students will be working on the marching instruments for Monday and Tuesday as well as going over their rudimental etude. An exercise on the instrument they wish to march from the packet as well as the rudimental etude will be performed as the audition. 

Fall 2018 Events (tentative-some dates subject to change)

Attached are the dates of our Fall events for band next year. Plan your schedules accordingly so you can attend contests and performances. If you have any conflicts COMMUNICATION is key! 


We are well prepared, and now for the largest and most important audience we will play for all year - our SHS Seniors and their families! 

Report time: Friday, May 18 6:00pm 
You must enter on the EAST side of the arena. This entrance is only for band, choir, seniors, and workers. You will not be allowed in the WEST entrance without a ticket. Instruments and cases will come in with you then cases will be left back stage. Keep personal belongings with you or at home.
You may begin arriving as early as 5:30pm

Warm up: 6:10-6:30pm 
Family members will be in the audience as we are preparing. This time will need to be used wisely. Be prepared to move quick. Once we are finished warming up and tuning, there will be some downtime to use the restroom and make any last minute arrangements. 

Ceremony: 7pm-done 
I do not have a completion time for the ceremony. Once it is all over, we will need all hands to help with loading stands and equipment onto the trailer.  

SENIORS and workers - it is YOUR responsibility to get your instrument to the arena and ready to play during the ceremony. I highly suggest finding a responsible friend to do this for you.
