Odem Band Schedule Week of 2/19/2018

We wish to once again congratulate our All-State Students John Pizana and Zenaida Lara for their outstanding auditions and performance this week! The All-State concert was great, and we look forward to having future students join the ranks of our All-Staters!

This week will be a fairly quiet week for the Odem Bands. Please note the information below for what is taking place though. We have our Pre-UIL Concert for the OJH Symphonic Winds and the OHS Wind Ensemble next Monday, February 26th at 6:30pm in the Odem HS Cafetorium. Students need to be wearing their concert clothes for this event.

Odem JH:

Gentlemen: White Button Down Shirt, Black Slacks, Black Belt, Black Socks, Black Dress Shoes, Tie (Solid Navy Blue preferred)

Ladies: Black Blouse, Black Slacks, and Black Shoes

Odem HS:

Gentlemen: Black Long Sleeve Button Down Shirt (top collar button not buttoned), Black Slacks, Black Socks, and Black Dress Shoes.

Ladies: Black Blouse, Black Slacks, and Black Shoes

Please be sure that all students have the appropriate attire! I do know there may be a difficulty with that for Softball/Basketball players. I will work with those students to figure out their best option. 


Owl Band Booster Meeting

There will be an Owl Band Booster Meeting that was rescheduled from last week on Tuesday at 7pm. We will accept trip payments at this meeting. Please make sure that February payments are made this week. We have a bill to our tour company that is due this month and each of the remaining.


Band Fees:

Spring Band Fees and any unpaid Fall Band Fees should be paid by next week. We will have the system completely updated and corrected by tomorrow afternoon. Please contact us with any questions/concerns you have.


OHS Wind Ensemble Rehearsal:

With our early contest date we are in need of an extra rehearsal or two still. We will have a mandatory rehearsal on Thursday at 6:30pm-8:30pm. All Wind Ensemble students must attend! If there is a sports conflict we understand if the students need to attend a game/contest. Otherwise students need to be in attendance for our last push to UIL Contest in two weeks!
