This is a very exciting time of the year for the students in Wind Ensemble as we are gearing up for the annual District Festival. The Wind Ensemble will be adjudicated at the Mary Harrison Center on Wednesday, March 20th at 5:30pm. This will be an odd year, as our pre-festival concert has been cancelled due to "inclement weather". We do however still have our festival dress rehearsal (to be held directly after school on Tuesday, March 19), and two weeks until the festival! We will be playing Fillmore's "Americans We" as our warm-up, and will be playing movements I and II of Puszta (by Jan Van der Roost), and Silence Overwhelmed by Brian Balmages. The students have made amazing progress on these pieces, and I'm very excited for our experience at District Festival! We are also in need of 2 more chaperones for the trip! If you are interested in being a chaperone, please contact Mr. Ritenour at RitenourA@calvertnet.k12.md.us!
