This Saturday, the May River HS Silver Sound Marching Ensemble will participate in it’s first ever marching band competition. History will be made on Saturday!!
Below is the band’s itinerary for the day, followed by the information provided the director from the show host, the Edisto High School Band Boosters.
Important to note for Saturday are the MEAL arrangements and requirements for the day:
The Band Boosters will be providing lunch after rehearsal, and a snack for the return trip home. Students are required to bring a sack snack / lunch for the bus ride to Edisto, along with cash (approx. $10) to purchase concessions for their Dinner meal after the band’s performance at approximately 5:15pm. Again, if your child would like to eat between 11am and the band’s departure home at 6:45pm , they will need to bring it as a sack lunch for the bus trip up, and / or cash $ for dinner.
Students are instructed to bring their coolers to rehearsal, and for use at the contest.
The band will rehearse in the morning prior to our lunch and departure. This is customary the day of a marching contest.
The band and color guard will wear summer uniforms for this early contest. We will wear our uniforms for the first time the week of the next contest (9/30).
We encourage parents to attend and be the band’s support in the stands for their first contest. Carpool! Caravan! May River HS car flags! Cowbells! Blue and Silver! Gimme an M……..Gimme an A………etc. etc. We need you!!!!!!!!!!
For more information, questions, or comments please email Mr. Carbone @ email@example.com.
Thank you for your continued support!!!!
