Below is an important message from Doug and our plan for next week!
(Remember that this week we will start right away with sectionals because I will have conferences.)
(Background music includes a portion of the Rakes of Mallow – Awesome chart!)
— Jenny Leist
Message from Doug:
Hello NHBFV Musicians,
Our winter session ends on Feb 28 and our spring session officially starts on Match 14. PLEASE go online and register at https://newhorizonsbandfoxvalley.com/join-us/
Registering early helps Jenny and our sectional instructors know who’s coming in March and better prepare music ahead of time for everyone.
HOWEVER, please note, we WILL still have a rehearsal on March 7…. This rehearsal night will either be a make-up rehearsal (for a canceled rehearsal due to bad winter weather) or a bonus rehearsal, if there were no weather-driven cancellations to make-up. Either way, band will have a rehearsal on March 7.
See you at band – Doug
