Parents and Students,
I hope everyone had an enjoyable week of rest and relaxation from after school events! Please read below and plan accordingly as we prepare for the Spaghetti Dinner/Concert, Christmas Parade, and Winter Concert.
Clinics and Workshops
Paladin Regiment Day is an opportunity for students to come and participate in a game day experience at our final home game with the Furman Marching Band. Information for the schedule and how to register is in the attached announcement.
Concurrently, Furman will be holding a Single Reed Day event hosted by Prof. Matt Olson and Cecilia Kang. The day will be spent preparing your saxophonists and clarinetists for the upcoming All State audition. I have also attached a flyer with more information about how to register and the schedule for the day.

We will serve spaghetti, salad, bread sticks, and drinks then move over to the auditorium for a concert. Tickets are $5 for pre-sale tickets. Tickets are $8 at the door. Band students will pay $2 to cover spaghetti dinner. EVERYONE NEEDS TO SELL TICKETS! You may turn in the money to Mr. Tillman and be issued a ticket. We want to see all of the parents, staff, faculty, coaches, church, and community members there! All of proceeds for this event will go toward student's fair share fees.
Symphonic Band After School Rehearsals
Please be reminded that we have Symphonic Band rehearsals on Mondays from 4:00-6:00 pm after school starting TOMORROW on November 7th. After school rehearsal is mandatory in order for our ensemble to achieve balance, blend, and good technique. Let's achieve another Superior a CONCERT FESTIVAL!!
Students that play Spring sports are asked to work in conjunction with their team. Talk to your coach about splitting the time of your practice.
Students attending tutoring (AP World, etc.) should plan to attend as soon as the session is complete.
Clubs are not an acceptable excuse to miss rehearsal. Remember that this is an extension of the class.
Please check the calendar and schedule doctors appointments, etc. around these rehearsals.
If you have any other issues regarding missed rehearsals, you need to see Mr. Tillman immediately.
Students not in the class must pass off their music in order to play the concert.
