BAND CAMP AUGUST 2010



More BAND CAMP INFORMATION on the Announcements Page !!

High School Band Members:

In September and October, our band is busy performing at the football games.
In order to get ready for the music we perform during those games, we hold a
mini band camp.  This year, our annual band camp will take place on August
30-31 at the High School.  This band camp is a wonderful way for incoming
freshman (9th Graders) to get acquainted with the High School before everyone
else gets there.  It is also a way to meet the band officers, drum majors and
section leaders in the band.  At band camp, you will also learn to march and
get a first hand look at all of the great music we will be playing.  Please
mark your calendars and plan on being a part of this opportunity.  The
schedule for band camp will be as follows:

Monday August 30: 8 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. - Drum Majors only
                                 8:30 a.m. - 9 a.m. - All Band officers

                                                                      French Horn players and
                                                                      Percussionists
                                                                      Drum majors/officers.

Band uniforms are distributed during this band camp.  Shoes are not supplied.
Please make sure you have a comfortable pair of black shoes and black socks
for our performances.  Please be sure to buy black shoes only.  Avoid any
other coloring, stripes or styling on the shoes that you purchase.  Remember,
basic is better. 


Students should wear comfortable shorts/jeans, shirt and sneakers for band
camp.  All students are responsible for having their own marching lyre and
marching folio.  Alto Music in Middletown and Al's Music in Port Jervis should
have supplies of lyres and folios for you to purchase. 
Thank you in advance for attending this very important band camp.  If you are
unable to make one or all of the meetings, I ask that you please call my voice
mail to let me know you will be unable to attend.  My voice mail is 355-5100,
