Hello Band Families,
BOA is finally here and the band is looking fantastic. The performance at the District Showcase was so good. When the band began, I heard several people in the stands by me say, “Oh, wow. They’re good!”. It’s so exciting to hear how other non-BVSW parents react when they see our band perform. I mean, I know they are amazing, but hearing it from other school parents is so validating!!
Our first local show is on Saturday, Oct. 5 at Blue Springs High School. Information coming soon. The students need to be in the band room by 8:30. All you need to bring to the competition is possibly bleacher seats and foldable chairs if you want to go hang out in the band crash area with the other parents. We will feed your student so don't worry about food and drink for them. When I get to the show, I will send a remind to let everyone know the general area people are sitting in. It’s really impactful to have a loud audience cheering the band on so let’s try to sit together if we can.
UNIFORMS- Students have been told to notify their instructors if there are any uniform issues. Because of our fantastic choreography, there have been several pants blowouts (an extra reason to wear BLACK compression shorts). We will repair these, but only if we know about them in a timely manner before a show! If your student has mentioned a wardrobe malfunction, please encourage him/her to let Mr. Lesando or Ms. Bock know.
