Dear Parents and Students;
Below you will find the happenings of the band program from now through spring break. It will be here before you know it!
TTU HONOR BAND
Tennessee Tech Honor Band weekend starts today in Cookeville and will last through Saturday. For those students attending, I sent out an email earlier today. There is a detailed schedule setting on the table outside my office.
All County will be the following weekend here at Station Camp High School. Students will get to study with Mr Mike Mann, former Associate Director of Bands University of Miami. Dues are $15. There is a detailed schedule setting on the table outside my office.
The February concert will be held on February 26th. The performance will begin at 6:30pm with the Station Camp Middle School band. The Station Camp Ninth Grade Concert Band and Wind Ensemble will follow. This is a great opportunity to hear some great music and meet future Thundering Herd members and parents. You can also support the Winter Guard by purchasing some baked goods outside in the lobby. Admission to the concert itself is free.

JAZZ BAND (schedule attached)
We were excited to begin the spring jazz band this past Tuesday. Rehearsals will continue to be every Tuesday from 3:30-5:00. This is a great opportunity for students to learn a new style, improvise, and work on reading skills! It’s not too late to join.
Spring Hill Contest February 21st
Hover Alabama Contest February 28th
Beech Contest March 7th
Spring Hill Contest March 14th
East Hamilton Concert March 21st
We would love for you to support this vital element of our program. Details of each performance will be released about a week prior to each performance.
We are having two special guests in over the next two weeks from Middle Tennessee State University, Professor Craig Cornish and Dr Reed Thomas. Both of these gentlemen are a wealth of knowledge. They also happen to sit in on every instrumental music scholarship audition that takes place at MTSU, so they would be great people to ask if you are considering attending MTSU as a major, minor, or non-major. Great opportunity to network!
You may have heard, WE ARE HEADING TO DISNEY! We will be leaving on March 27th and returning on March 31st. We still have a few students who have not turned in their February payments or their Emergency Contact Forms. Please do so immediately to be able to stay on the list of Disney goers. The final payment for Disney is due March 2nd — $151 for students. For more info on what to pack, specific schedule, etc. attend the March Booster meeting (see date above).
Enjoy the rest of your week!
