Odem Bands Schedule Week of 12/17/2018

This past week our students had some great performances with the Odem Bands, and then our students with the All-Region Bands this Saturday! We congratulate all of our students on an outstanding first semester! We have one final performance on Tuesday evening with the OHS Screeching Owl Jazz Band. Their Annual Winter Evening of Jazz performance will take place at a 7pm in the OHS Cafetorium, desserts will be served and admission is free for some great music!

I’d also like to pass on information that the Corpus Christi Wind Symphony, a great adult community band I perform with, will have a performance at Flour Bluff HS at 8pm tomorrow night. The performance is free to attend and features some great band music played by the high level group!

Thursday will be the final day of school before the break. All students must take their personal instruments home over the break! We prefer that all students take their instruments home to practice, but especially personal instruments just in case something unexpected were to happen over the break at the school. This also means that students can continue to get their practice time in. We encourage students to get a couple of hours of practice in over the break to avoid losing any of the conditioning they have built up over the semester with their playing.
