Band This Week: Dec. 2 – 6, Upcoming Performances

Hi All! 

Congratulations to everyone that performed at Coffee Night last week! It was a great show with the biggest audience we have ever had! Thank you to Music Council, the loading crew, and all the performers – well done! 

I can’t believe it’s already December! We have a number of performances coming up. Please stay on top of your studies and take care of yourselves as we enter the busiest time of the year for ANY musician! 

Please stay in the loop and don’t hesitate to ask for help or ask questions. 🙂

From the Reynolds Music Council… Secret Santa Sign up starts on Monday this week, sign up in the band room. It will be split between Junior and Senior students. Names will be given out on Friday at lunch in the band room for anyone who would like to participate!
