Thank you everybody for another successful band camp this year! The horns/winds made a lot of progress in their music and survived another week of craziness. Colorguard is working hard and will be continuing their training on new equipment work for the rest of the summer as well. Finally it was good to see some incoming talent from the percussion section although there is still plenty of room for more members! Talk to your friends and classmates from around the school and see if they want to join our marching band!
I would also like to thank all the parents that came out for the Friday performance to support our growing sound. It is a real pleasure to have such supporting families for our program that want to help us get better. Again we would love to have some of the newer families joining us this year to also be a part of our boosters program.
The Wilcox Instrumental Music Boosters (WIMB) help maintain all the behind the scenes logistics that make our music programs run. These items include organizing fundraisers, managing finances, running bake sales, figuring out carpools, and also fun stuff like throwing end of season parties and cheering for our performances. If you would like to be a part of our booster program please join our next meeting on Tuesday September 1st at 6:30pm in the band room (room M100)! Or email myself or our 2015 president Starr Koga!
Finally another reminder for all the marching band students:
- Recruit more members! We want to have at least 2 more front ensemble members, 2 bass drums, a few more hornline and anybody that wants to dance in the colorguard!
- Learn your music! We need to have everything ready to go by the time school starts so we can start learning how to march on the field!
- Get some exercise over the summer! Stay healthy because this show has some difficult passages that are much easier if you build up your stamina now!
