Band/Trip Announcements 2/22 - 2/6

Good Morning Band Families,
    A few important reminders are listed below - for both Tour Band participants and the entire band program.

ETHS Solo And Ensemble Festival - Tuesday March 22nd 4:00 - 9:00 p.m. ETHS Band Room

Solo & Ensemble Application - Due Monday March 7th

     We want to take this opportunity to put a plug in about our Solo and Ensemble Festival, hosted here at ETHS.  This event is an opportunity for students to perform accompanied solos as well as duets, trios, and chamber pieces in front of a small audience and music evaluator for a rating and feedback.  We will host the instrumental performances in our band room from 4:00 - 9:00 p.m.  Please consider performing a solo or small group composition at this event!  Please coordinate with your small groups and accompanists so we can put a schedule together with ease.  A list of past accompanists is located on our website at: 

 http://www.ethsbands.com/faculty_staff/piano_accompanists.html  

     A solo and ensemble registration form is available above.  Please plan with your band directors, private lesson teachers, and peers to form small ensembles and pick literature for this event.
