February 1st

We are on our way to the beginning of the second semester of school! With that new start, Tuesday and Thursdays will be our concert band rehearsal in order to get ready for our spring performance / CPA recording! Wednesday will be our first in person Winter Guard rehearsal as well!

I am excited to hear the results of the region band auditions! They should be coming out soon. Those who made it to the audition for All State will have those same recordings listened to again this weekend to determine seating for that!

If you have any friends who may be interested in joining the band this next year, please encourage them to do so! We could always start them out on percussion until they learn how to read music, and if they wish to take private lessons may be able to switch to a different instrument later on in their High School Years!

Our musician of the month for the month of February is Devin Fauver. Devin is an amazing Bass Clarinet player who is willing to put in the extra time to transpose other parts that we are missing in the band, conduct the music library inventory, and many more tasks. She has always been a wonderful student and excited to help anyone she is able to. 

Last but not least, once again, please take a look at our fundraisers located on this website (mayriverbands.com). We won’t be able to make it through next year’s marching season without your assistance in spreading the word about Kroger Rewards, Amazon Smiles, our Coffee Sales, and Scrip! There is even an area to give a donation and become one of our sponsors! 

Thank you all for your great support and have a nice week!
