Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band and Drumline Schedule and Updates- Week of 4/8



Wind Ensemble/Drumline/Jazz Band Schedule and Updates


 OMG Meeting this Thursday, 4/11! 

We hope to see all of your beautiful faces there so you can hear from our directors and student leadership about what's happening in OMG!

Thank you so much to everyone who helped at the WGASC competition on March 30th. And thank you to everyone who baked, brought in sodas, and loaned us your canopies, ice chests, and crock pots. It was quite an adventurous day with the wind and rain. Everyone played a big part to make the whole day run as smoothly as possible and it was a success!

Here we go again! We are hosting the WGASC Championships on April 20th. This is a big event and helps fund ALL of our OMG programs! We need volunteers to help run the event.

Our Color Guard team will likely be performing at another location in the evening if they make finals, which they are on track to do! That means we will need extra people especially in the afternoon and evening.

 All of our programs have lots of events coming up and we always need volunteers! Click the link below to see our upcoming Drumline, Jazz Band, Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, and Color Guard events and find out how you can help!


We are looking for parents to hold positions in the 2024-2025 Oiler Music Guild Board and Chairperson positions.  We are especially looking for Tournament Chairpersons. We will be having nominations during the April 11 meeting and elections are on May 1, 2024.  Please contact Heather Lopez, our Parliamentarian, at hblopez6@gmail.com if you would like to get involved.

Additional Notes for Parents/Students

 

-I hope everyone had a restful Spring Break! We return to a bit of normalcy with this week’s rehearsal schedule. Wind Ensemble will begin working on some sight-reading, Pops Concert music, and prepping for playing at the Tower Awards. Drumline continues to finish up work on the competitive show, and Jazz Band begins rehearsing for Jazz Festivals in May.

-Drumline competes for the 2nd time at Marina HS, Sunday April 14th. We will have time to change out of uniforms after we perform so please make sure students bring a change of clothes with them to the competition.

-April 19th we are having a clinician coming to work with our Wind Ensemble. We are also hosting the WGASC Color Guard finals the next day so we need all hands on deck that weekend. If your student is in drumline, expect them to be at school on Friday the 19th until 7:30pm. If your student is not in drumline, they are going to help set up after wind ensemble rehearsal, so please expect them to be done on Friday around 6:00pm. We will need everyone to work a shift the next day for the competition.
