You band members have been doing a horrible job on keeping this community alive...

I ask that you atleast keep up the tradition of posting who all makes it the festivals this year, as that's just something good to do so those people can receive some praise.

Right now, District Band and IUP Honor Band are being decided, so you should let us know. Orchestra would be good too, but they don't audition for Districts, so I don't know if that's necessary.

So anyone, please try to keep this community alive and let us all know who made what these days. I've only heard 1 or 2 names for IUP Honor Band (and those people have my condolences... biggest waste of time band I've ever done) and I want to hear everyone else.

Just your friendly neighborhood Band Alumni Tim,

I know for alumni band that there is traditionally band football earlier in the afternoon. I would guess somewhere around twelve or one. I can only speak for me, but i would like to come back and play some good old fashion band football. So if the coordinator/s could get back to me on when band football is, that would be awesome. Until then, i got my eyes on you guys, you sneaky band people!!!!

yay for WE! [22 May 2007|06:03pm]

[ mood | content ]

hokay, so, this thursday W.E. is performing their first and final concert for the 2006-2007 school year.


we're playing
Windsprints- A nice little ditty that was obviously written by a woodwind player. No offense to woodwinds, it just has a lot of quick runs....like Diarrhea. 
Pavanne for a Dead Puppy--I mean- Princess.  It's cute and I have a solo.  eat it.

American Salute-  YAY AMERICA AND JOHNNY COMES MARCHING HOME!  Mr. D always has to play a song that is seeping with American paraphernalia.

October-  If you hate this song, I WILL KILL.  It's beautiful.

William Tell-- totally cute.

it should be good.

So, uhh, go!

I think it's at 7 or 7:30.

Alright, since I'm very behind, here's the people who have qualified and WILL be moving on to State Band:
Kevin Longwill - Percussion
Jeremy Hetrick - Trumpet

However, in addition to those two, these two qualified for state band, but are already attending state orchestra:
Richard Ebersole - Bari Sax (will be attending Orchestra on Clarinet)
Lindsey Falbo - French Horn

In other news, the Adv. Jazz Band is competing this Saturday in a PMEA festival (I think?) at State College. It's a competition, so obviously, we want to do well. The three songs we will be performing are "Cruisin' for a Bluesin'", "Night Flight", and "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square". I probably messed up the spelling on the last one, which is a vocal. We also have our Jazz Band concert on April 26, with a Senior Citizens Dance on the 27.

May, there will be concerts every thursday the whole month. I think the order is Orchestra, Concert Band, Chorus, and Wind Ensemble, though I could be VERY wrong, so don't take me on that. I only know taht Wind Ensemble goes on the last thursday, which is the 24 I believe, since the 31st is the day before prom, and it will be over before then.

So, schedule is thus:
April 14 - Adv. Jazz Band competes at State College
April 26 - Jazz Band concerts
April 27 - Senior Citizens Dance
May 3 - concert (Orchestra I think)
May 10 - concert (Chorus I think)
May 17 - concert (Concert Band I think)
May 24 - Wind Ensemble concert

As for the Band trip, I didn't list that because frankly, I forget when it is... Sorry :)

I know noone uses this livejournal like they used to, but as Dan and I are graduating this year, I felt it may be good to find new moderators for the board. Kristin, being the general overlord (haha) of this journal will, of course, have to approve it. So, we're looking for those from the class of '08 or class of '09 to take over the duties of maintaining this journal. I doubt anyone from the class of '10 knows about this, and besides, they'd be sophmores, so forget that. If interested in modding this board and continuing it to grow, please comment this entry.

Hope everyone is having a good last MP of the school year, or last few weeks of college for graduates :)

Good luck to all the people going to Regional Band in a week or two ( i reall have no idea.) But this is to every band member that has second period band. As most of you have heard, County Band was as good as another Steven Seagal movie. And i know Mr. D openly admitted different comments about his displeasure with county band. IF anyone would care to share what he said, that is in second period band, or just heard him say random things, you know what to do. Go to the bottom right hand corner, and write a comment. KThanks

Hey everyone... [24 Jan 2007|04:44pm]

I've kind of lost track of the whole live journal thing, but I'm back!

Good luck to all the band members who will attend festivals in the upcoming weeks. Also, I'm still wondering if alumn and current students would like to still hold a summer concert like many have talked about in the past few years. Hope everything going great!
