Our Band Family Is Full of Rock Stars

Huge Kudos to all of the dedicated band students, boosters and family members who continue to be rock stars at performing, volunteering, and coordinating. 

A Standing Ovation is deserved for our Students, Winter Staff, Boosters, & Parent Volunteers who made the Sherwood Winter Showcase a well oiled machine. You guys are incredible! If for whatever you reason you haven’t had a chance to watch the winter percussion or the winter guard in performance, you need to go see them! 

As a program, it’s great to step back  and think about what we have achieved over the past couple of months:

*Sent 10 student musicians to All-State Honor Groups.
*Hosted Swingin’ with Spaghetti with record fundraising and attendance.
*Held a Solo & Ensemble Recital with 60 student directed performances happening across 3 performing spaces.
*Sent 42 performances to the OMEA District 14 Solo & Ensemble Festival.
*Had 11 of those students qualify for the OSAA State Solo Contest.
*Hosted the Sherwood Winter Showcase all morning, day, and night on March 15th. 
*Performed at 20 SHS Basketball Games. 
* Attended 2 Wind Ensemble Festivals and received a set of qualifying scores for the OSAA Band Contest.

PHEW! That’s a lot. Now we continue the season of festivals, concerts, winter ensembles, and welcome the Fiddler on the Roof Musical to SHS. REMEMBER – KEEP PRACTICING!
