Game 1, Centennial, Home
The GHMB is looking forward to giving a great performance at our first football game Friday night!
The band will be performing in their Summer uniform for the first few games. Consistency from student to student is very important. All students are expected to follow these guidelines:
There are five Evening Rehearsals for this season and that number will not increase. All five rehearsals are considered required and will be calculated into your grade. Exceptions to the requirement are (1) for athletes who have traveling matches which return later than 9:00PM on the dates listed above, or, (2) on a case-by-case basis as needed. Work and non-Grandview Heights activities should be scheduled around Evening Rehearsals; please submit the dates above to your work management or advisors.
Our first night rehearsal is this Wednesday, August 16th, 8:00-10:00PM. Rehearsal evenings vary throughout the season, so please refer to the Google Calendar often!
Each band member received a flip folder from the band at the beginning of the season. The flip folder allows your student to conveniently keep their music organized and transport it easily.
If your student has misplaced the flip, it is their responsibility to replace it. Flip folders are available from Stanton’s Sheet Music (330 South Fourth St), Music & Arts (Graceland Shopping Center), Buckeye Brass (7445 Montgomery Dr, Plain City), or online. Flip folders come standard with 5 ‘windows.’ It is recommended you purchase extra windows to accommodate all the music distributed. Music/Flip Folders will be checked periodically and is calculated into your student’s grade. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
