Here is some important information about upcoming events for the SHHS Band.
Band Camp continues Monday and Tuesday from 9 am – 9 pm and will conclude Tuesday night. There will be a rehearsal this Thursday from 6 pm – 9 pm.
Uniform fittings will be this Wednesday for all of those students that already own one or need to be measured for a used one. Complete the alteration form (parent form to sign regarding alteration options) to determine how the alterations (if needed) will be handled. The students that ordered a new uniform in the Spring (mainly Freshmen) will not need to attend the fittings.
- Have your student try on the marching band uniform before the end of band camp. If it fits fine GREAT, we still need to see them in it for inspection on Wednesday. If the uniform is too short, PLEASE take out the hem so we can mark the correct length and send it off to be hemmed.
Uniform Inspection Times – Wednesday, July 29 (9 am -3 pm)
- Woodwinds, 9-11 am
- Brass, 11:30 am – 2 pm
- Percussion, 2-3 pm
- We need the student’s uniform during the fitting. It is unfair for a handful to forget, causing us to keep having to track students down to beg them to bring in the uniform.
- We can always use help from people to mark clothing for alterations (training provided). We need people who are willing to: record alterations needed and fit for baldrics, hats, and gauntlets. If you have time available from 9 am – 3 pm on Wednesday, please help. Many hands make light work. Contact Lisa Kleven at 423-737-0530 or Billie Mosier at 423-483-5627 if you can help.
- If your student was one of the rare cases that we realized simply needs a different uniform, please be prepared to purchase the new item quickly so we may begin alterations.
- Please be prepared to try on both the jacket and pants – wear athletic type shorts and a t-shirt so they can be tried on quickly and efficiently.
If there are any parents that want to purchase a band t-shirt, please fill out the form (2015 Band T shirt order form) and turn into the band office by the end of this week. Orders for shirts will be made next week so they will be available for our preview show on August 14th. More info concerning the 14th will be forthcoming.
