May River HS Band Department
Hope everyone has had a great week! There are no band events Friday and Saturday, however, next week is a big week so I wanted to get some information out to you before the weekend.
FALL BAND CONCERT NEXT TUESDAY NIGHT!!!! – TUESDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2017, 7pm
Next Tuesday, October 24th, the May River Band Department will present its Fall Concert, featuring every band member in the department in a combined concert band. The concert will take place in the May River HS auditorium with the downbeat of the performance at 7pm.
After the May River HS band’s performance, members and parents are invited to stay and listen to a performance by the Lowcountry Community Concert Band, a community concert band made up of musicians of all ages, with the core of the ensemble being over the age of 50. The ensemble is part of the Osher Life Long Institute from the University of South Carolina Beaufort. The conductor and artistic director of the ensemble is yours truly, and the band includes 6 May River HS Band students. See the attached flyer, FALL FANFARE!
There is NO COST OF ADMISSION to this concert, however, be aware that traditionally the LCCB passes around baskets for donations.
