any and all questions can be directed to the band director, Eli Simantel, at email@example.com
It is recommended that registering members have at least one year of dance or music experience, but not required. Everyone is welcome in the marching ensemble as long as they are willing to work hard. The season will kick off with Band Camp.
Band Camp is a series of all-day rehearsals running August 7 - 11, and August 14 - 18, culminating in a family and friends performance on the final Friday afternoon. The season will continue with three evening rehearsals every week, performances at home football games, and competitions on Saturdays. The competitive season runs up to early November.
A more detailed schedule and itinerary will be sent out as soon as possible, but with the Merle Davies building being torn down, there are a lot of factors up in the air regarding rehearsal spaces.
Marching Ensemble is a big time commitment and it is incredibly important that every member has excellent attendance. Sometimes it is difficult to juggle multiple commitments, the most important thing is that you communicate with me and your other coach/director/family so we can come to a compromise.
