Annandale High School Bands A Fifteen Time Virginia Honor Band



Kudos

To the Percussion and Jazz Ensembles on a great concert last week! To the AHS Choirs for wonderful performances on their Spring Chorus Concert. To the students and parents who helped make the FCBDA Solo Competition we hosted a great success. Also to those who worked the extra concession shift for the post season.

After–School Rehearsals

With the complicated schedule in May due to IB and SOL testing, a guest clinician visit, a guest soloist, and unique percussion needs, a couple of after–school rehearsals will be necessary prior to our spring concert. Please add these dates to your calendar and email me about any conflicts ASAP:

Wednesday, May 20:

  • 2:15 – 4 – Concert Band Rehearsal (with percussion)

Thursday, May 21:

  • 2:15 – 3:45 – Symphonic Band (with guest clinician)
  • 4 – 5:30 – Wind Ensemble (with guest clinician)

Wednesday, May 27th – Dress Rehearsal

Sports Physicals

Every student planning to participate in marching band needs to have an annual physical on file with FCPS. AHS Boosters Annual Sports Physical Night will be Monday, June 1st from 6-7:30p.m. This is a great chance to take care of this for next year. Also, this is our Marching band Kick-Off night, so sign up for an early time and make it a convenient experience. Sign-ups are now open. This fundraiser not only supports the athletic training program, but ensures that your son or daughter’s physical is valid and on file for the entire 2015-16 school year. Licensed athletic trainers, physical therapists, EMTs, nurses, physicians and parents will volunteer their time and expertise to provide thorough screenings. Sign-ups for students and volunteers are open. Register your child early! Space is limited. Cost is $50 cash, credit, or check. To register as a student or volunteer, please visit www.fcps.edu/sports and click on Sports Physicals.
