W.E. 3rd Place in State 2018

Congratulations to the Wind Ensemble members who prepared so well and performed fantastic on stage at the OSAA Band Contest on Saturday. It was a packed house, Matthew Maslanka was in the hall listening, and the W.E. members were treated to a standing ovation. Earning 3rd place is a huge deal and humbling honor. Bravo to our student musicians!

Thank you to our section coaches and lessons teachers for helping us to get here and for the guest clinicians who worked with the Wind Ensemble throughout the year.

Thank you to the Band Boosters whose support allow us to have all of the instruments, music, and support staff we need to elevate to this level. Being in the top 3 for two years running is a challenging task. Without booster support, we wouldn’t be able to climb as high as we have!

If you plan on attending, please be respectful as there will be performing and clinic work happening on stage.

Upcoming Can Drive! Please Mark your Calendars and Sign Up!

Hello Band Parents

We are wrapping up a wonderful year of music.

As you all know, our music program would not be what it is without your help and the fund raising efforts throughout the year!!

We have our final event coming up in June.  The Can Drive.  It will take place on Saturday June 2nd.  We will be at Middleton Elementary.  We will need volunteers to help make this event a success.

This year we will do a double house posting.  The Band Section leaders are doing the first one right now, and it is nearing completion.    In 3 weeks we will have a second reminder posting.  In addition, 2 businesses in the area have agreed to collect their recyclables for us.  We hope to have a lot to sort and bring in for the Band Program!

Here is the link: http://signup.com/go/MJSgijf

We will need some help on Friday also.  We will meet at the High School to get the supplies for Saturday.  I have added that to the signup spot.   We also need trailer drivers.

Please sign up soon.  The sooner we get the event full of volunteers, the fewer emails that will be needed!

Thank you and see you in June
