Warriors!! I hope you have enjoyed your time off after the parades and have been staying cool and hydrated!! I wanted to give some information on our upcoming camps
MUSIC CAMP: August 2nd and 3rd -- 7:30 - 9:30 am in the band room. Music is posted on Google Classroom. Please be looking it over PRIOR to camp. We hope to have all songs learned and work on memorization as well!!
DRILL CAMP: August 8th - 11 th -- 7:30 am - 12:30 pm. Here is where we put the show on the field! Goals are to get moves learned AND put music to the first 2 movements. Remember on these days to have water with you!! Follow Ricky's example of bringing a gallon a day. Also, start preparing NOW for this camp by hydrating each day -- water over soda.
MEMBERS: We have openings in all sections, please encourage your friends to join us -- no experience is needed. We are looking for a synth player and a drum set player. If you have 9th grade friends (this upcoming school year 9th grade) if they are interested, have them contact Mr. Windsor.
If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Windsor via email; firstname.lastname@example.org
FEES will be discussed during camps.
I finally have the information about the 2022 Cherry Days Parade!! Following is the schedule/itinerary for that event. -- If you are interested, you are welcome to join us at the Huntsville Parade (You can join us on the "Big Yellow Taxi - Bus). Just let me know and I will send those details just to you
For the Cherry Days Parade, I have asked my son, Jared, to be teh contact at the start of the parade -- most of you know him and will be able to find him. He will have drums and flags with him for those who need them. We are entry #86, basically the end of the parade. If you will meet on Mountain Road, I will attach link to this message, that is our line up area. You can also look for Mr. Daniels as he will also be part of the School entry. I will be bringing the band down from teh Valley to join you all for this parade. Most likely, you may have to step off without us for a bit, at least we did last year. If that is that case, I will be in contact with Mr. Daniels and one of my summer staff members to keep you informed. At the end of this message will be a link to show the map of the parade route. Here is the schedule:
9 am: Meet at Mountain Road and 2600 N. (road 7-11 is on) We will line up to the "SOUTH", again, Jared and Mr. Daniels will assist with that. Enjoy time visiting with others who love to play!!
10 am: Parade begins. Now we wait more!! Stay cool and hydrated -- not sure how that will go!
1130 am: APPROXIMATE TIME: parade will end. We will march into the parking lot of Wendy's and Fizz to end our parade. We will load drums/flags onto the bus and we will take to school
NOTE: I may have enough extra band shirts to give you one. Please email me your size by FRIDAY and I will let you know and I will bring it to the parade starting point. If not, here is our uniform for parade:
Band shirt or BLACK or RED Shirt (Go Warriors), jean type shorts (be comfortable) and athletic shoes. Sunglasses and Camelbaks are perfectly fine.
If you have any questions, please let me know and I will answer them for you. Thank you for helping to start a new tradition!! This is something we want to move forward with. We will be doing something very similar for our Holiday Concert in December. Details will be posted in late October or early November.
LASTLY -- if you know others who want to join -- let them know to contact me ASAP, we may be able to get them in!!
Thank you all and I am so excited to see each and every one of you!!
Great work this week Warriors! Music and marching has come together, now we work on consistency with the feet! Quick shout out to last week's SECTION OF THE WEEK: Trumpets!!
Parade went very well! I have received many positive comments on your performance AND sound!! Some of the comments have come from Band Directors across the West -- several friends of the WHS Bands have contacted me with their comments.
Keep up the great work as we move to the July 4th "Day of Parades!!" We have the Huntsville Parade AND the N.O. Cherry Days Parade (with some Alumni!!) on that day. I have not yet received the information for line up, etc from the parades but will be contacting them to get that so that I can share that with you.
As we move to the end of the parade season, I want to remind each of that our Fall Show practices will begin in July (end of July). We are looking to add as many as possible to this fun and exciting show - "VIRAL!!" If you have questions or have friends who do, please have them contact Mr. Windsor at -- email@example.com
This show will be fun and exciting for both the performer and the audience. Parts have been posted on Google Classroom for you to begin to practice.
