ALSO… “Call out” to all band parents…
The Guard is in need of a new practice area.  If ANYONE has any leads or information on rehearsal facilities in the Carmel area that might be available to us to use for rehearsals with the winter guards, please email Rosie Queen  ASAP. We need a space that is at least 60 X 90 ft. and has a high vantage point for the instructors.  Thank you.

DIDN’T YOU LOVE THE GOING VIRAL FLAGS? The Going Viral flag silks that were used in the fall marching band show are being offered for sale. The black & white flags and the 2-sided flags are being offered for $20 apiece, while the giant closer flags are being offered for $25 apiece. A few of our guard moms spent countless hours sewing these gorgeous flags, and our lovely color guard girls spun them beautifully in the fall show. If you are interested in owning a piece of this awesome show, contact Kim Ware

CONCERT BAND UPDATE
There will be two additional after school rehearsals planned for Wind Symphony One on Thursday March 22nd 3:30-6:00 PM and Friday March 23rd 3:30-6:00 PM.

We will be filming a tutorial on how to teach High School Symphonic Band with Richard Saucedo (Thursday) and David Starnes (Friday).  Mr. Starnes was the Director of Bands at Kennesaw Mountain (GA) and is now a Director at Western Carolina University (GO CATAMOUNTS!!!).  This is a really neat opportunity to be a part of something special that will help band directors all over the world!  In addition, these rehearsals will help us prepare for our spring concerts and ISSMA contest.
