Congratulations to everyone on their successful mini camps last week and to the Jazz Band on a FANTASTIC performance at Jazz MPA! It’s another busy week in the Titan Band as we prepare for our preMPA next week. We have our Spring Tour Friday (Academic Eligibility forms are due Friday morning), and Dr. Southall is coming in to work with the Jazz Band and Symphonic Band I on Thursday. On Monday we have a professional oboist coming in at 3:00 to work with the TCHS oboists on tone and oboe technique. On Tuesday Symphonic Band I and the Freshman Band are having a check for understanding of the vocabulary words on their music. Symphonic Band II will do this on Wednesday. All three bands will have a music check on the first day of class to make sure they have their notes from our mini camps written on their music. Students who were not at the mini camps need to see Mr. Hall for modified assignments and due dates.
State Solo and Ensemble, State Guard MPA, and State Jazz MPA is Friday, March 27 at Cooper City High School. The cost for instrumentalists to perform at State S&E is $14.00. The cost for guard solos is $30.00. Students need to have money submitted no later than Wednesday, February 12. Mr. Harris will be available to accompany students at State S&E this year.
