Odem Bands Schedule – Week of 2/21/2022
This week students who are participating in Solo and Ensemble will compete at the UIL Region contest in Robstown at Seale Junior High. We are still awaiting times still and will share them with you when they become available. From tentative information we have received we will leave before school ends, and return sometime around 7:30pm. The Boosters will be providing pizza for our students for dinner that night.
Tomorrow (Monday) we will hold our Annual Solo and Ensemble Recital. The Brass Choir, Clarinet Choir, HS Ensembles, Soloists, and JH students on a voluntary basis will perform. The event will begin at 6pm in the HS Cafetorium.
On Saturday, March 5th, the Odem HS Wind Ensemble will perform and receive a clinic from TAMUCC Faculty on stage in the TAMUCC Performing Arts Center at 1pm. This is an amazing opportunity for us to play in one of the five best halls in the state! We need every student to be present at this mandatory event. Following their performance we will be taking a tour of the campus, go somewhere for dinner (TBA), and then return to watch the TAMUCC Symphonic Winds Concert that evening.
Windi and Jazzi 2022
Tickets are now available for Windi and Jazzi that will be held on May 7th here at this site: https://odemhsband.ludus.com/index.php This has become an annual dinner/concert to benefit the bands that we look forward to presenting each year! This year’s theme is ‘Night On Broadway’ and will feature music from a number of hit musicals, as well as some other works performed by the HS Band Students. This event benefits the Band Boosters and helps us raise funds program wide by ticket sales and the silent auction we hold simultaneously. Please be on the lookout for information about this event coming soon, and we ask that if you have a business that you own or work for that might be able to contribute that you reach out to them.
We will be asking each student in grades 6-12 to help with contributing one item to baskets that we will be auctioning off by theme. This event has done quite well for us in the past! Tickets will be $15-$25 per ticket depending on the seating type/location, and comes with a choice of Chicken Fried Steak or Chicken, Sides, a drink, and dessert along with the great entertainment! I will send out basket themes for students this week!
