Welcome 8th grade band parents to the 2021-2022 school year! We have already begun working towards our performance goals for the year. Please know that all LMS band
parents will receive periodic email updates throughout the year. If you have a student in the high school band, the middle school band updates will not be as frequent and will likely precede performances or major events.
2021-2022 Concerts and Performances
Below is a list of band performances for the 2021-2022 school year. If you have a student in other LMS bands, you’ll notice some small differences due to grade level commitments. Please mark your calendars accordingly
LMS Band Polos - CHECK YOUR CLOSET
With 8th Grade Band Night a month away, it’s important that all members are dress accordingly. Since your student has not used their band polo since 6th grade, we want to make sure they are outfitted correctly. Please have your student check their polo sizing ASAP and email me if the polo no longer fits. We will work to find a replacement so they are ready for the performance on October 1.
Music for middle school bands requires a diverse instrumentation. This includes oboe, bass clarinet, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, french horn, baritone, and tuba. Some students in 8th grade band have already moved to secondary instruments while others are interested in making the switch. Students are to express interest to Mr. Herrmann, then we will open a dialogue between student, parents, and directors about possible options for your student.
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me by email or phone.
