This term the Advanced Band is preparing for the state-wide Instrumental Fanfare competition. This is a large event which usually occurs every two years. We will compete in our Regional Heats on Tuesday 31 May at Meridan State College. Further details will follow in the next few weeks.
To assist us in preparing we have scheduled two additional rehearsals during school time, which will follow into our usual Thursday rehearsals. These are:
Thursday 28 April, 12pm - 4.30pm
Thursday 19 May, 12pm - 4.30pm
It remains essential that students are attending all sectionals, rehearsals and lessons in the lead up to this performance. If there is any reason your child will miss anything, please ensure that you or your child advises us in advance in person or via email to Mrs Natalie Bulley at email@example.com. Students are also expected to practice at home to assist them in being ready.
For Fanfare, we are performing the following pieces:

The YouTube links may help your child with their practice.
The additional rehearsal times arranged for the Advanced Band will unfortunately impact on our Dance Troupe students whose lessons are held each week on a Thursday. For this week and for week 5, Dance Troupe lessons and before school rehearsals have been rescheduled as detailed below:
Thursday 28 April rescheduled to Friday 29 April
Thursday 19 May rescheduled to Friday 20 May
We are excited to confirm that the Advanced Dance Troupes have been entered into the Dance X Competition for Term 3 and the Jump Dance Challenge for Term 4.
Thank you for your ongoing support in our Performing Arts Program.
