Rockheights Music E-bulletin – November 2016

Month at glance:

  • Pizza Sales are on a roll. Selling out almost each Tuesday!
  • Uniforms were ordered and picked up. Cost is $10. Students keep and use for their duration in Music at The Rock! New Music students can send $ in to Ms. Kelly to receive their uniform t-shirt.
  • Halloween Howl was a success! Much thanks again to all who contributed and attended! A report on funds raised at next meeting.
  • Choir performed “Blowin’ in the Wind” at “No Stone Left Alone” at God’s Acre. They performed beautifully!

 

Reports and reminders:

  • Intermediate Band – Some Intermediate students are not attending lunchtime rehearsal on Tuesday’s. This is not an “optional” rehearsal because it is at lunch but part of the course. Please check in with your Int. Band student regarding this please.
  • Beginning Band – Tuesday’s afterschool rehearsal is sometimes used to check in on a specific section of the Band. Also, staff meetings fall on most 2nd Tuesday’s of each month; on those days Band only runs until 3:30pm. This Tues.’s afterschool class will be reserved for the Trombone section.
  • Choir – We have welcomed Al Kornelsen, an accomplished accompanist to our Friday Choir classes. This has been a wonderful addition as Ms. Kelly can now truly be out front teaching and conducting the choir class.
  • Jazz Band – Jazz Band is eagerly rehearsing 2 X’s a week with very committed members.
  • Strings – Mrs. Rebstock has taken over the Strings dept. Our students are enjoying her very much.
