Marching Atoms Leadership Team

Students selected to the Marching Atoms Leadership Team for 2016 will meet with me soon. Stay tuned! All leadership students must attend band kick-off night.

2016 Band Kick-off Night

This is an event for students and parents with all the information needed for next year’s bands at AHS. The calendar, fee structure, the theme of the 2016 marching show and other important information will be released. Please plan to attend on Monday, June 6th at 7 p.m. in Clausen Hall.

Final Exams

The final exam for concert band classes (Wind Ensemble, Symphonic, and Concert Bands) is worth 20% of the final course grade. The final exam is half written, half playing. Students were informed in class this week and last what the playing portion of their exam will be. There is plenty of time to prepare these scales and play them from memory at a very high level. Make sure your student does not wait until the last minute to prepare.

Annandale High School Symphony Orchestra

The Annandale High School Symphony Orchestra, a collaborative effort between the AHS Bands and Orchestras, will begin rehearsals next week. Rehearsals will be most Mondays from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Band students who expressed interest via the google doc have been accepted. Some additional students will be needed to fill out the roster. Auditions will be held for positions where there is more interest than need.
