WILLOUGHBY SOUTH MARCHING BAND WEEKLY UPDATE
WEEK OF OCTOBER 22, 2018
As we continue to work for State, in addition to improving what we currently have on the field, we want to do the following:
Continue to improve upon our musicality, which made HUGE strides since Avon Lake
Get the opener and closer up to the marked tempos.
Continue to improve upon the drill
Continue to improve upon the fundamentals and visuals that we have
Add in a couple more visuals to the show.
This is the final week for any additions/changes. State week is for cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning.
With three weeks to go, this is all VERY DOABLE! Continue to be prepared for the weather and continue to come ready to be
prepared for a couple of hours of highly focused work.
SO, SOME OF US HAD TO LEARN THE LESSON THE HARD WAY !!! PLEASE REMEMBER TO BE PREPARED FOR ANY BIZARRE WEATHER CONDITIONS FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON. IT CAN BE 70° AT THE BEGINNING OF FIRST PERIOD AND 45° AT PRACTICE, PLEASE BE PREPARED AS IT WILL HAPPEN. CHECK THE WEATHER!!!!!!!!!!
SENIOR PARENT NIGHT
As hard as it may be to believe, the 2018 Marching Band Season is beginning to come to an end. At the Kenston game (Friday, October 26), we will be recognizing our graduating seniors and their parents during pre-game. I am very hopeful that we will be able to continue our long tradition of every senior being accompanied by at least 1 parent. The schedule for the evening will be:
5:45 Senior Parent Reception in Room 145 (Dr. Norris)
6:15 Meet Athletic Director, Jim Mormino, on the track in the stadium (home side, southern end)
6:30 Ceremony announcing senior fall athletes, band members and their parents
6:50 Pre game Show
7:00 South vs. Kenston
Come in on Tuesday and every rehearsal remaining READY TO WORK. When that “I’m tired”, “I’m overwhelmed”, “I’m over the weather” moment hits you, remember, you guys only get 4 opportunities to earn a superior rating at state, and you are certainly headed in the right direction to do just that. See everyone on Tuesday.
ONLY 8 Rehearsals remain until STATE FINALS!!
