Program Notes, vol. 12.07.17

Greetings Band Families!

Hope you have had a fantastic week, everyone!

We look forward to seeing everyone at our upcoming 2nd Annual Pancake Breakfast fundraiser this Saturday!  Tickets will be sold at the door, so please keep selling tickets and inviting everyone to join us.


Last Saturday the Silver Sound did a fantastic job marching in the Bluffton Holiday Parade.  The band even received some coverage in yesterday’s Bluffton Today!

The band has been working hard rehearsing for the upcoming Winter Band Concert NEXT TUESDAY, 12/12 at 6:30pm in the MRHS auditorium.  Immediately following the MRHS concert, the Low Country Community Concert Band will hold its winter concert “Winter Soundscapes.”  The ensemble features several May River HS band students.  You are more than welcome to stay and enjoy the concert.




Many of the band members are working diligently for the upcoming All-County band auditions.  Students will prepare audition recordings for consideration for selection in this “All-School District” honors ensemble.  So, encourage your child to keep working on their scales and audition etudes.  Recordings will be monitored by Mr. Carbone, and will be submitted by the end of next week, December 15th. Audition requirements and schedule information is located on the band’s Google Classroom.

“The Black Box” has arrived.  The band boosters now have a black lock-box located in the band office.  This will make the remittance of booster related expense items, such as shoes and gloves, more convenient for the students.  The students have been kindly reminded if they have yet to pay for such items.  We hope that we can close the books on the marching season here soon, so please send any outstanding payments for shoes and gloves ASAP.  Thank you.

Best Regards,

David Carbone
