April 4- Shawnee Mission Concert Band Festival at SM Northwest. 6:30 report time in the Northwest cafeteria.  Wear all black dress clothes. Concert begins at 7:00PM and is free to the public. We perform second, but kids are expected to stay for the duration, it should be over around 8:30PM.


April 8- Symphonic and Concert band Contest Concert, to be held in the North auditorium. 6:30PM report time in the band room.  The concert begins at 7:00PM.  Concert band should wear all-black dress clothes, symphonic band should wear their symphonic band uniform.  This should be a short evening, as those are the only two groups performing.  We are also kicking off a huge fundraiser, but everything should wrap up before 7:45 PM.


April 13, Solo/Ensemble festival at Olathe South high school. Specific times and rooms can be found on the attached document.  The large percussion ensemble is still not on there, I’m working on that.


Finally, could everyone please review the schoolfundr document? This is a way for our band to make our $20,000 goal.  All students should begin loading family/friends emails using the provided QR code. Parents, most of your kids have already created an account so you need to ask your child what their password is, if you are planning to help them get 20 emails.  Kids, please make sure your parents can help you get 20 emails of family, friends, etc.  I know many of you have questions regarding the nuts and bolt of this fundraiser, and we will go over all of that at the concert next Monday night.  The vital thing right now is for everyone to create an account, and get 20 emails into their account, so we can start our fundraiser on April 9th.


This can be such an easy fundraiser to help the band make as much as we make hosting the SM North Marching Invitational!  This is that big of a deal! The North track team very recently made over $10,000 doing this fund raiser!


Go North band!
