Band This Week: March 9 – 13, Marching Band START!, Tour Meetings, RMPA Meeting

Hi Everyone,

One week left to go before Spring Break, folks!

The Reynolds Marching Band begins it’s 53rd year of operation THIS WEEK on Thursday at 7:15am – we will be marching in the gym AND out on the field! Please bring a change of shoes or a pair of gumboots as the field may be soggy in the AM. As always, I ask that GRADE 9 students TRY THREE rehearsals before opting out of the marching band experience. Grade 10, 11, and 12 students! – Please welcome our new members and Grade 9s and help them! I am so excited to get started! Please arrive a few minutes early to find your “spot” on the posted band list. 

The Reynolds Alumni Band also begins it’s Spring Season on Thursday night with at rehearsal at 7:00pm in the band room. Rehearsals are conducted by Mr. Dale Wilson but ALL band alumni are welcome to attend regardless who your band director was (Mr. Denike! Mr. Flello! Mr. Davis!). The rehearsals are fun, full of good music and a chance to connect with former band members! Spread the word! We hope to see you there! 

Congratulations to the cast, crew, and pit band of Nice Work If You Can Get It for an exceptional run! I am so proud of our pit band! Thank you for your exceptional performances and commitment to the show – it was a long three weeks of rehearsals, runs, and shows but you powered through and should be very proud of yourselves!

Thank you, all! Best.👏🏻Pit.👏🏻 Band.👏🏻 In. 👏🏻Town!!! 🙂

Mr. Davis
