It has been a great three days of camp so far, and I’m looking forward to the students arriving shortly to begin our fourth day!
I wanted to take a few moments to remind you of some upcoming events with the RHS Marching Band:
- Tonight (8/11) is the DCI World Championship Quarterfinals Simulcast in movie theatres nationwide. This is a great opportunity to see the world’s best marching ensembles as they compete for a spot in the finals later this week. The show starts at 6:30pm, and the closest theatres that are showing it are in Germantown and Columbia. Go to www.dci.org/cinema for more info and to purchase tickets!
- Tomorrow (8/12) is our trip to the Marine Barracks in Washington, DC for the Friday Evening Parade, featuring “The President’s Own” U.S. Marine Band, the U.S. Marine Silent Drill Team, and the U.S. Marine Drum & Bugle Corps. An information sheet for the trip was distributed to students on Tuesday (if you need another copy please contact me and I will email you one). We still have spots available for family members who would like to join us (at no cost!). Please let me know today if you would like to come with us!
- Next week, camp continues 4pm-8pm each day, and next Friday (8/19) is our annual Parent Meeting and Show & Tell performance. The Parent Meeting is at 5:30 in the Band/Orchestra Room (#1084) and the Show & Tell Performance will begin at 6:30 in the front parking lot.
It is imperative that at least one parent attend the parent meeting, and please feel free to bring as many friends and family as possible to our Show & Tell performance!
As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. This is already shaping up to be a great season!
