Odem Bands Schedule Week of 11/2/2015:


This week will be a much lighter week for the Odem Bands, but we do still have some events coming up. Please note that I expect a long run into the playoffs this year. Most of those games will be on Fridays, but that may change as we continue into the season. All games are performance grades and students are required to attend. If you foresee a conflict please let me know as soon as you are aware of it. We will do our best to work with you under those circumstances. For your planning purposes I do anticipate that we will be performing at a game November 27th, the day after Thanksgiving just as we did last year. In all cases we will be looking at games on a week-to-week basis. This coming week will be the final regular season game at Banquete.

In the coming weeks we will be having some evening rehearsals to perform something different beyond our competitive show each week. However this week we are going to take that easy and continue to use our competitive show for one last performance. Thursday from 6:30pm-8:00pm this week I would like to shift gears and have a rehearsal to begin working on our program for our coming Carnegie Hall performance in June. Wednesday it is my plan to pass out that music and also begin working on Winter Concert Music in class.

Please note that our monthly Band Booster Meeting will be moving to next week. That being said we need payments for the trip in this week by Friday please. Students should have paid at least one-thousand dollars by this month to be current with the payment plan. It is imperative that every student/sponsor make payments this month as we have two major payments due this month! Please remember that payments need to be made to Owl Band Boosters via Check or Money Order. We also accept credit card payments via Charms online. Please note myself, and Mr. Williams, will both be away Monday and Tuesday of this week.

We do have one person who has decided to not go on the trip and would be interested in having their spot bought out. Please contact me if you are interested in that spot.

Thank you to all of the parents that have given so much of their time and support throughout the season in the concession stand, helping with props, riding buses, giving rides to and from practice, and all of the many things that go into everything we do. We cannot have a successful program without that support and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for that!
