Calling all 8th grade band students!
The fantastic Willamette HS Marching Band invites you to play with them at the Homecoming game this Friday, October 7th! This is a great opportunity to see what it’s like to be a member of this exciting ensemble at a real live game. Interested students can attend rehearsal this Thursday 10/6 from 5:15-6:45 at the WHS baseball field to prepare for the pregame performance. If students are not able to attend this rehearsal, they may still participate!
On Friday, all interested students will meet at the WHS band room at 6 pm for pizza (free, provided). They will then march to the stadium. Students who were at rehearsal the night before will join the band for pregame; those who did not will watch from the stands. All will perform pep tunes during the game, and watch the WHSMB perform their halftime show.
Please RSVP to the director, Mr. Casey Crane, at firstname.lastname@example.org. All this information (and more) is contained in the attache document (below). If your student plans to attend, please let me know if you have any questions, and arrive with the registration sheet (last page of the document below) filled out. Copies can also be found in the CMS band room. Hope to see you there!
