2018 - 2019 Mighty Maroon Band
I thank you for what I feel is one of the best choices you will make in the upcoming school year, joining the Mighty Maroon Band. This year we will once again be 60 members strong. Together, we will continue to become an elite organization of the school, community, and the state!
This year our show will be a custom written show titled, “Tales of Arabia”. We will have a lot of wonderful performance opportunities this season including parades, football games, marching contests, region band tryouts, our local Christmas and Spring Concerts, UIL solo and ensemble competition, and UIL concert and sight-reading concert. Please see the schedule tabs above for events and dates. Some performances are optional and will be denoted as such.
You will need black shoes, with black soles, and black socks to wear with your uniform. The parade attire will be black shorts, tennis shoes (any color), and your band t-shirt. Our first few football games we will wear blue jeans, black shoes, black socks, and band shirts.
Please take this time to sign up for remind 101. This is how we communicate as band members with information about performances and times. Please have your parents sign up as well so they will also receive all the messages.
If you would like to receive extra help or just want to practice during the day, please contact me. I am at the school from 8:00AM- 4:00PM Monday through Thursdays, in June and July. There will be some evening open band hall times in July, (See the practice Schedule) so you can come work on “Tales of Arabia,” region band, cadence line, clean your horn, or just practice with your friends. Your Drum Majors Timber, Liberty and I, are looking forward to working with you this year and congratulate you on a great choice.
