Odem Bands Schedule – Week of 2/13/2022

This week, we will hold our annual Solo and Ensemble Recital on February 16th at 6:00pm. That is mandatory for HS Applied Music students/HS Ensemble members. We use this as a great chance for students to be prepared for their UIL Region performances the following week! 

We are awaiting our performance schedule for Solo and Ensemble, but will share that as soon as UIL provides that to us. That will be Thursday, the 23rd, and if you have a student performing you are more than welcome to attend that event. All UIL performances are open to the public, so please feel free to come and support them!

Windi and Jazzi tickets are on sale now! Our annual Dinner/Concert Fundraiser will be held on May 6th at 5:30pm in the Odem HS Cafetorium. This year’s theme is ‘Comedy Tonight,’ and will feature tributes to the slapstick eras of musical comedy! You may pre-purchase tickets here: http://odemhsband.ludus.com We will be seeking out donations for basket items and business donations in the coming weeks. Please keep an eye out for that information!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have!
