Quarterly Newsletters and updates from the Band Director and Parent Boosters.
March and April are usually the most busy time for a middle school musician, and we are keeping the trend! Each of our students are likely preparing for band festival, preparing a solo or ensemble piece, and preparing for next years' classes - all while keeping on top of their other class work, of course. At the end of February, our Symphonic Band section leaders and Band Officers were even able to go on a day-long recruitment tour of all of the 5th graders of our Fillmore Unified elementary schools. The fun fact for the 8th graders of the group is that they were recruiting the future freshman of their high school senior year! A big reminder of the importance of their keeping connected to our larger community. They did a great job and as the 5th graders prepare for their promotion to middle school, many of them will now have a better understanding for what a music program is like at our level.
Next up for the Symphonic Band is a trip to Santa Susana High School for band festival. Information has been sent home with the students already, but some information has changed regarding the days' schedule. Please expect another timeline to be sent home with students!
Those interested in coming out to support the group and possibly see other performing groups from the area can see the listed schedule online and be sure to bring $5 for entry and students should take notes if they are using the event for a live performance review! For more info on other music festivals happening in the area go to www.scsboa.org.
VAPA Variety Night is coming up and students have begun signing up to perform and fulfill their course requirement. Please mark your calendars to plan on coming out to support our Visual and Performing Arts on the evening of March 21st.
Finally, this months' Booster meeting is on Tuesday, March 13th at 6 PM in the band room if you are interested in helping out with our upcoming fundraising or our future concert activities. You can also connect with them via our Facebook page! (Search "Fillmore Bulldog Bands".) See you then!
The members of the Fillmore Middle School Music family have dedicated themselves to excellence in performance, community relations, and achievement in academics and musicianship alike through their passion and respect for the arts and each other.
We work together to thrive together.
