Dear Creekview Band Friends and Family,
Happy New Year!! Welcome Back! We hope you enjoyed a very special Christmas with the family and friends! We’ll be getting back into the swing of things on Wednesday – Students will have a MAP Schedule. The Spring semester will be quite exciting as we see our Winterguard, Percussion, Jazz and Concert bands continue to improve and develop as performers. We’ll need support from parents and students to reach our fundraising goals and to utilize our private lesson staff to help accelerate our student’s abilities and performance goals. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!
Spring Trip update: Reminder to turn in your December 16th payment of $200. We only have 2 payments left, January 20th and February 17th. Please remember that we must have all Band fees paid by then. We will be building the Rooming list soon and will also be finalizing flight passenger information.
Full Orchestra: we have an incredible program selected and are excited for the Full Orchestra Season. Students in FO will rehearse on Tuesday and Thursdays 7:15am – 8:15am every week through the final week of February. Plan in advance for punctual arrival and perfect attendance at all Full orchestra events.
Solo and Ensemble: The UIL S&E festival takes place on February 25th at Coppell HS. This is a great opportunity for students to LETTER or earn a BAR for their Letterman Jackets. Students should have a SOLO or ENSEMBLE chosen at this time and be able to play through their music. We’ll confirm with all participants, each student is responsible for preparing their music, and will have an accompanist fee. We will have all students scheduled to rehearse 2 times prior to the festival.
Mattress Sale Fundraiser: We’re blessed to have such an active booster of parents, ready to help and volunteer for the success of our band students! We recently sent you an information email about the event. This Fundraiser can help us bring more than $3,000 for the band as we head into a state year and look to continue providing the best teachers, equipment and contests for the Mustang Band. Help us by sharing the link on your facebook!
AREA AUDITIONS: Best of luck to our 5 AREA Qualifying students! They will be auditioning on Saturday in pursuit of qualifying for the TMEA ALL STATE BANDS!
