Spring Chair Audition Results!

The Concert Band Chair Audition results have been compiled.  You all did a great job!!!! Many of the placings were very, VERY close.  Results will be posted on Thursday in the Band Room…however if you would like a sneak peak, you can email Mr. Lemen and he will send you a copy.

Happy New Year!  Festival Season Coming up!

Spring means festival season for band!  Make sure to check the calendar for the upcoming months to clear up those dates!  The first date for Concert Band, Symphonic Band and Advanced Percussion is on February 17th (THIS IS A CHANGE) for our Solo Night!  The time frame is from 5-9, but students will only have to be there for about 20 minutes or so.  If you have specific needs for that evening, please let Mr. Lemen know!

See the tab at the top of the page for mp3’s of the piano parts and for extra copies of the music.

*For privacy reasons, many videos are pixelated to hide students’ faces.  If the camera was far enough back that the faces are not recognizable, we did not blur them.  I realize this takes away a little be from the overall effect of the video, but I believe that student privacy trumps video quality in this case.

*If you have videos of concerts or other performances, I would love to put them on the Youtube Channel!  Please get them to me however you can!

Box Tops for BAND

Vista Band is in a unique (and good) situation. We are growing fast, but our equipment amount isn’t growing with us! We need more instruments. Specifically, we are needing many more Baritones, Horns, Bassoons, Bass Clarinets and Tubas. We are going to begin collecting “Box Tops for Education” in order to try to make enough money to supplement our current supply of instruments! All you need to do is bring in your box tops and give them to Mr. Lemen!

Total so far: $125!
