As was mentioned in the beginning of year letter, our first evening rehearsal is next week. September 16 from 6-7:30pm. We will rehearse as a full band, with all of the space and guidelines being observed. We do have a partial halftime to show and a few other songs to play and we will be live streaming those on the band facebook page for all of the parents and friends at home to watch. We’re calling it a live stream mini performance. The facebook page is Byron High School Band. I will practice live streaming something before then so that I don’t have too many technical difficulties on Wednesday night… fingers crossed. I’m hoping for the live stream to start shortly after 7pm.
We will have one more live stream performance on October 14th, which will be live streamed again except from the football stadium under the lights. I hope to have 2 halftime shows and a few bonus features ready for performance by then.
After some deliberation, we’ve decided to change the Florida trip dates to June 28-July 2, 2021. We’re just pushing it back a few weeks so that spring sport athletes don’t have to miss a week of their sport. Almost half of the band students are in a spring sport so this was a significant number of students worth changing the dates for. Obviously we still have the limitations that covid might bring at that time, but that’s beyond anyone’s control so at least changing the date eliminated the spring sport conflict.
The popcorn sale concludes this weekend, it takes approximately 2 minutes to set up an account and then send the link to people who might purchase. No money collecting, no order forms, etc. 50% profit! And if you haven’t had zebra popcorn or unicorn popcorn, you don’t know what you’re missing. =)
Have a fantastic weekend! Looking forward to Wednesday!
