Band Calendar Updates/Changes - 7th & 8th Grade only

We have made some changes to our Band Calendar, due to some unforeseen conflicts.  All of the changes are for events that are required for students to attend Disney/Stars and Strikes, so please check/update your calendar. The updates to the Calendar are as follows:

Changed Dates
February 27th       7-2 Band Symphonic camp has been moved to Saturday, March 5th from 9:00am                               – 2pmat Palmer MS. (Conflicts with HS Camps)

March 1st             Pre-festival Concert has been moved to Thursday, March 3rd at 7pm in the        Palmer Theatre.  This features the 7-1, 8-1 and 8-2 Bands performing their LGPE selections. (Moved because elections were scheduled in the theatre that day)

March 3rd & 4th  The 7-1/8-2 Symphonic camp that was scheduled after school these two days, have been moved to Monday, March 14th & Tuesday, March 15th (moved because of concert change)

Updated Dates- These dates were originally scheduled as TBD until we received the LGPE schedule.

March 10th          The 8-1 Band is scheduled to perform at McEachern for LGPE at 4:30pm

March 23rd          The 7-1/8-2 Bands are scheduled to perform at Kell HS for LGPE at 6:25pm
