January 13 Update
Today I saw something I haven't seen in a while: the sun! I pray that you were able to enjoy it for a bit! We have a few things to note this week:
- Rehearsal at FVL this Saturday (January 16). And because the Packers are playing that afternoon, I'm encouraging everyone to wear their Packers apparel to rehearsal. :) Please make sure your kids arrive before 8:15am with their band music and a pencil. We're working really hard to get as much rehearsal in as possible because...
- We record another "concert" next Saturday (January 23). Both bands are planning to perform a couple pieces for MusicFest, and because it's a virtual event this year, we need to have the video ready to go. Plan on having your kids wear a black (or dark gray) shirt next week to rehearsal for recording.
- Help needed! It's a new year and we need volunteers to help with Saturday morning check-in. If you're able to give a bit of your time to help out, sign up here. Thanks!
- Congrats to the nine newest band members who have made it to the 1000-Minute Club!
- Now is a good time to ask your woodwind-playing kids if they have enough reeds in good playing condition... :) If you have questions about this, let me know!
- As referenced above, MusicFest is coming up at the end of the month. The following is a message from the MusicFest organizers: For many years, FVL MusicFest has been a great way to showcase the musical talents of our high school bands, choirs, and individuals/groups, and our middle school bands, as well as to raise money to continue to support these groups. Please mark your calendars for MusicFest 2021 as a virtual event on Sunday, January 31, 2021, from 1 PM - 3 PM. Information regarding the event schedule, silent auction details, matching gifts and pick up times will be provided on the school website, https://www.fvlhs.org/todays-news/musicfest. Share your enthusiasm for the event with family and friends and encourage them to join us for MusicFest 2021. Thank you for your support!
God's blessings on the rest of your week!
