Sectionals Start This Week

Please note this message is intended only for the parents and students of Symphonic Band & Wind Ensemble:

Students in Symphonic Band & Wind Ensemble are required to attend one sectional per week from 4:00-5:00pm for a weekly minor grade. All Percussion sectionals will last until 5:15pm to give students enough time to learn all 3 of their Region etudes. Students are expected to “Be Punctual” and arrive seated with all materials and ready to rehearse at 4pm sharp or their grade will be affected. Students 1-5 minutes late will have their sectional grade reduced to an 85. Students who are late 5-15 minutes will have their grade reduced to a 70. Students arriving more than 15 minutes late will receive a 50. These grades replace the Practice Records used in previous years.

  • Mondays: Bassoons (Ensemble Room with Trahan) AND Trombones & Euphoniums (Band Hall with Pulley)
  • Tuesdays: Saxophones (Ensemble Room with Trahan) AND Trumpets (Band Hall with Pulley)
