Special JET Band Booster Blast 12/3/19

Message from Michael Ary, Director of Bands

Friday Football Fever on Fox 26

Friday morning a TV crew from Fox 26 will be here on campus to shoot some footage for the Friday Football Fever. Band students should arrive at 5:30am on Friday wearing their blue JET Band performance shirt and jeans. At 5:40 we’ll meet in the main gym for a quick warm-up and then we’ll follow the lead of the TV crew.

Region Band updates for this weekend

The following instruments will audition Friday night at Paetow HS starting at 5:30 pm: Flute, Bb Clarinet, Alto Sax, Trumpet, French Horn, Tenor, Trombone, Tuba, and Percussion. 

Saturday morning, those students from the above list that advance to Phase 2 plus all the other instruments will start at 8:30am at Paetow HS. 

Freshmen Region Band auditions start at 1:30pm at Paetow HS on Saturday afternoon. 

Logistics after Region Auditions

Saturday morning at the conclusion of the high school region band auditions, we’ll give those students enough time to eat and change into their uniform, then they will load up on a bus and head to the game. These students will need to check out their uniforms on Friday and either take their instrument with them Saturday morning OR find a responsible student to take their instrument to the game for them.  I recommend that these students get dropped off at Paetow Saturday morning as the bus will be returning here to THS after the game. If they must drive themselves to Paetow Saturday morning, they’ll need to find someone to take them back to their car at Paetow.
