We’d like to thank our Band Boosters and parent volunteers who have worked at the rental tent at the fair. Thank you so much for giving your time and support to the Marching Pride! We’d also like to thank our drumline and auxiliary students who performed at the fair last Friday!
Thank you to our Band Boosters and parent volunteers who helped to chaperone at State Jazz and Solo & Ensemble MPA and to those who helped to work at State Auxiliary MPA. Both events were very successful!
Here's what you need to know for our upcoming events.
This Week’s Schedule:
FGCU Music Major Day (Wed. 3/29): Tri-M is hosting an FGCU Music Major Day field trip for students who are interested in continuing music at the college level. This field trip was offered to select students. Unfortunately, the district is not able to provide a bus for us to travel from PRHS to FGCU. Mrs. Robinson will be giving students an alternate travel form on Tuesday.
2023-2024 Marching Pride Information Meeting (Mon. 4/3): We’re holding our annual Marching Pride Information Meeting on Monday, April 3rd. The meeting will start with check-in at 6:30pm. This meeting is for new AND returning members of the Marching Pride. Please help to spread the word to new prospective members. We will discuss auditions, band camp, and fees at this meeting. We hope to see you there!
Band Picture Day (Wed. 4/5): Band Picture Day will be on Wednesday, April 5th. All students will have their pictures taken in their marching band uniforms during class. Band students will wear clothes that can fit underneath their band uniform and hair will be styled down. Students will need marching band shoes, gloves, or hats for the pictures. Auxiliary students will wear their Mad World uniform, hair will be styled down and they can choose their own make-up. There is no cost to have your picture taken. Order forms were given in class.
State Concert Band MPA (Fri. 4/21): State Concert Band MPA for Wind Ensemble will be on Friday, April 21st at Broward College Central in Davie, FL. Wind Ensemble is scheduled to perform at 7:00pm. A full schedule will be released next week.
Dancing Cubs: Our Auxiliary Team is inviting students in grades K-8 to come dance as a Dancing Cub at this year’s Rhythm of the Pride Recital. Please see the attached flyer for more information. The first practice is on Tuesday, April 11th from 4:30-5:30pm.
Instrument Repair & Equipment: Our trusted local vendors are Cadence Music and Christman Music. Both vendors can drop off orders and pick-up instruments for repair at PRHS—but parents must call to make arrangements ahead of time. Instruments will not be picked up unless orders for repair are placed ahead of time. Contact information for Cadence Music and Christman Music can be found on the band website under the “Students” tab.
