Additional Notes for Parents/Students

-Jazz Big Band had an amazing performance at this past Saturday’s RCC Jazz Festival! Big Band received a “Superior” rating and all of the judges were very impressed with the group. Way to go Big Band!

-This Wednesday is the AP Music Theory test that has to be done in the band room during 6th period. Unfortunately we will not be able to meet with wind ensemble after school on Wednesday. Enjoy the afternoon off!  

-This Saturday is the Costa Mesa Jazz Festival where we’ll be having both the Big Band and Lab Band performing. Students will need to be dropped off and picked up at Costa Mesa High School. I will be at the band room before and after if students need to pick-up/drop-off their instruments or music. Please make sure students bring money for lunch to buy at concessions.
