SMB Music Posted & Update

Welcome to the 2015 Sherwood High School Marching Season! Our second workshop is this Thursday & Friday from 10 – 5. 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.

Students: Section Leaders have been in contact with you. If you have not been receiving correspondence, we might not have your accurate email. Please contact Mr. Stai if you have not received any correspondence, bstai@sherwood.k12.or.us

Also, updated music and the full show has now been posted online. There is also a midi recording that is 95% complete (Please ignore the snowman quote at the end of the show). Access music at http://sherwoodbands.org/members-only-section/

It is not too late to sign up for Marching Band & Colorguard, or to give it a try. If you know of someone who is on the fence, tell them to come try it out. Know of someone who wants dance & movement experience and to be a part of something great? Sherwood Colorguard is a good place for them to be! We are looking for additional members who will work hard to develop physical coordination and mental focus to add to the visual component of our competitive fall & winter shows. Please contact Amy Jack ajack@sherwood.k12.or.us or myself if you or anyone you know might be interested.

Looking Forward to a Great Season!

Sherwood Youth Band Camp has a Facebook Page & a Webpage http://sherwoodbands.org/sherwood-youth-band-camp/ where information can be located. SYBC already has a great turnout in numbers, however we will be accepting registrants up to the first day of camp.
