I hope that you are all having a great summer. It is hard to believe it, but band camp is right around the corner. This year, camp will be held at Drexler Middle & Intermediate School in Farley on July 29 through August 2. A concert and ice cream social will also be held on August 2 at 7 PM. All students are encouraged to attend as much as possible. Even if you can only come to a single rehearsal or can't make the concert, you are welcome! Please enter at the back of the school near the band room. Rehearsal will begin each day at 9 AM and run through noon. There is no cost to attend. Students should bring water and wear tennis shoes so that no one is injured while marching. Lyres to hold music will also be very helpful and can be purchased at any music store for around $15. Concepts taught in rehearsal will include next year's marching music and basic marching technique. We will have music available. During this week, we have the equivalent of several months of rehearsal time, so this is a great way to start off our journey towards excellence!
If you are able to attend, please fill out this form: http://dmisband.weebly.com/band-camp-registration.html so that we can plan accordingly.
I am excited to see you all again and continue our learning! See you soon!
