Odem Bands Schedule – Week of 2/6/2022

We would like to begin this week by congratulating these Odem JH Band Members for an outstanding performance with the All-Region Jazz Band! Jonah Garcia (Bari Sax), Shawn Williams (Trumpet), Adrienne Contreras (Trumpet), Von Barrera (Trumpet), and Eva Garcia (Trombone) They had a great performance on Saturday! Also congrats to Emma Doria from the HS who represented us in the HS Jazz Band and did a great job as well!

Last week the $25 Spring Band Fees was due for Grades 7-12 Students. Those fees need to be paid in Check or Money Order only please, made out to OEISD, Memo: Band. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns, but we do need to be receiving those soon!

Next week, we will hold our annual Solo and Ensemble Recital on February 16th at 6:30pm. That is mandatory for HS Applied Music students/HS Ensemble members, and optional for JH Band Students. We use this as a great chance for students to be prepared for their UIL Region performances the following week! 

We mentioned this last week, but 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!
