SMB WW & Brass – Mini-Camp Thursday & Friday

Sherwood Marching Band Woodwind & Brass Members, Remember we have our first SMB (Sherwood Marching Band) mini-camp/workshop this Thursday & Friday from 10am – 5pm. Meet in the SHS Band Room. We will do stretching and movement from 10-1 and music from 2-5. There will be a one hour lunch break on both days. Bring your instrument, marching shoes, water, lunch, & sunscreen.

Recruit! Even though we’ve started up, we still have colorguard & marching spots to fill if you know of anyone interested in joining what is going to be another incredible marching season. See you soon!

Grand Floral Parade Video & Thank You

Congratulations Sherwood High School Band & Colorguard for the 1st place finish in the 2015 Grand Floral Parade. Our band & colorguard finished the entire parade route in 90 minutes at a fast record setting pace. The parade video has been posted in the members only section at http://sherwoodbands.org/video-audio-archives/.

That was the last performance of the 2014-2015 school year and was a great final performance to a school year full of great & memorable performances. A huge round of thanks to parent volunteers and the marching staff for their dedication to our success! You all have a huge role in the band and colorguard performing at the level that we do. Thank you!

Parents – We have been coaching up the kids for weeks both in class and in parade rehearsal regarding getting rest, hydrating, and taking care of their bodies. Students are responsible for showing up on parade day with a “full tank,” which means having hydrated, eaten well, and then snacking on the bus ride over to the parade. During the Parade, we have a group of parents who will be dispersing water to our parade ensemble throughout the course of the parade. Thank you those who volunteered and to the boosters for setting this up. Once we’ve arrived at the end of the parade route, we will have gatorade bottles waiting for students on the bus.

Trying to predict our arrival time back at SHS is tricky but my best bet is 4pm.

For those who are interested in watching us on TV, the band steps off at 11:10am.

Graduation Band – Rehearsal Friday Morning at 7am

Dear Parents & Students – We’ve been talking about this in class this week, we need to have one rehearsal to get on the same musical page for graduation. We are going to rehearse in the band room at 7am on Friday. This is one rehearsal to get 45 minutes worth of music reigned in across three different bands. Please arrive a few minutes early so you can navigate the crowd in the band room and set up. Thank you!
