The Weekly Blurb - Week of 10/25/2010

Lots going on this week . . . the Marching Band Concert Thursday evening, our final regular season game Friday night, and the Halloween Parade on Sunday for any volunteers that can join us with the Middle School Band.

One other note for Seniors and their parents:  as we have discussed during class, our senior recognition dinner will not be this weekend, as we have too many seniors with conflicts due to halloween, etc.  Further, the next weekend (Nov. 7) is out due to the fall play.  Right now, we're looking at Nov. 14.  Please let me know if you have any conflicts for this date.  We would like all of our seniors and their parents to be present if at all possible.

This week's events:

Thursday October 28,  7:30 pm - Marching Band Concert.  Students should be in the band room getting dressed by 6:45.  Please note that this is a change in time from earlier calendars due to sports events that will delay some students.

Friday October 29:  Football at Ottawa-Glandorf.  Depart at 5:30.  Home around midnight.

Sunday October 31:  Halloween Parade.  We could use any and all volunteers to come march with the Middle School Bands in the Halloween Parade.  Meet behind the Richardson-Bretz Building (behind the Library) at 1:30. We'll be done around 2:15.

Have a great week!

The Weekly Blurb - Week of 10/19/10

I hope everyone enjoyed last week's combined performance with Elida.  Both bands played well and sounded great!  This week we have another "massed band" event.  We will begin with a tribute to our seniors, and finish the show with the combined High School and Middle School Bands.  This is always a treat for our Middle School students, and encourages them to continue playing in High School.

This week's schedule:
  • Thursday October 21:  5:30 pm:  PIZZA PARTY courtesy of CHS Athletic Dept., followed by chair placement auditions beginning at 6:00 pm.
  • Friday October 22:  FB vs. Bath (Home).  Senior Night & Combined performance with CMS Bands.  Rehearsal at 5:45 pm.
Have a great week!

CHSMB Performs at OSU Skull Session

Enjoy the picutres below from the Skull Session on October 8.

The Weekly Blurb - Week of 10/11/10

Congratulations on a great job to everyone at the OSU Skull Session this past weekend.  I received numerous compliments on both the quality of our performance, and on the caliber of students we have.  You represented your selves, your school, your families, and your community well.  Thanks to your efforts, future CHS Band members will have the privilege of enjoying this opportunity in years to come.  I hope you enjoyed the experience.

This week, we have a couple of out-of-the-ordinary things going on as well.  On Thursday night (instead of rehearsal), we will be performing at the K of C hall across from Subway in support of a fund raiser for "Sources", which is a local anit-poverty non-profit organization.  We are happy to be able to support their efforts to help those in need right here in our own community.  Also, we will be doing a combined performance with Elida at Friday night's game, which has become a tradition that our students look forward to each year.

Our schedule for the week is as follows:

  • Thursday 10/14, 6:00 pm:  Performance at K of C Hall.  Done by 7:00 (maybe earlier).
  • Friday 10/15, 5:00 pm:  Depart for football game at Elida.

The Weekly Blurb - Week of 10/4/2010

We have an active and exciting week in front of us, so without further adieu, here's how it shakes out:

  • Thursday October 7:  Rehearsal/Band Pictures, 6 - 9 pm  (Note the extended time due to pictures)
  • Friday October 8:  FB @ Kenton.  Depart at 5:15 PM.
  • Saturday October 9:  Skull Session at The Ohio State University.  Depart 6:00 AM.  Return approx. 3:30 PM.
A couple of important notes about Saturday:
  1. Please remember to bring some money for Lunch - we will stop at Tuttle's Crossing on the way home and eat at the food court.  You may have a small amount time to shop as well.
  2. Students who wish to ride home with their parents may do so if they provide Mr. Sellars with a note in advance.  You will not be released to your parents until we return to the band trailer and your instrument and uniform are put away and/or loaded.  A faculty member must see you leave with your parents (i.e. one of the four directors).
