Odem Bands Schedule – Week of 4/8/2019

This week will be a big week for the Odem HS Band as we host Windi and Jazzi on Saturday evening! Tickets are still available online here (http://odemhsband.ludus.com) or from the band directors. Tickets are $15-$25 per person depending on seating area. Doors open shortly before 6pm on Saturday night. We will sell tickets at the door on Saturday as well until we sell out on meals. Please help us make this a great event and enjoy a great meal and music! We will also host our silent auctions that evening with a number of baskets, sports tickets, restaurant gift cards, and more available! We hope you will join us and help us make this a successful event that grows each year!

Tuesday and Thursday afternoons we will have guard practices, and Wednesday we will have our leadership training day. Friday after school students with the High School Band will have two rehearsals to prepare for their performance on Saturday. Those mandatory evening practices will be 4:00pm-6:00pm, and 7pm-8:30pm. (Softball is excused for their Game Friday) We will have another on Saturday morning from 10:30am-Noon. Students will need to be at the school dressed in their concert attire by 5:30pm. Additionally we are seeking some OJH students to help serve – those students should also be present by 5:15pm and should wear their concert attire for the event as well.

In another week we will have our UIL Concert and Sight-Reading Evaluation in Sinton on Wednesday, April 17th and Thursday, 18th. As of this message we are still waiting for performance times from UIL. As soon as I receive them I will send out that information in case parents are able to join us for students performances!
