Concert Cancelled – but now there is Pep Band!

Good Morning! Due to flooding and the closure of school, there will not be a Christmas Concert Tonight with the Choir and Orchestra. Many of our concert selections are dependent on individuals/soloists, and we don’t want to put on a formal concert performance that isn’t our best. Thank you for understanding.

That said, the GRC Boys play Ashland Blazer tonight in a big home game at Campbell. We will have a pep band tonight at the game. Call time is 7pm.

The GRC band room will be open from 6-6:30 to pick up instruments. Or, email Mr. Payne before 5pm and he will get your instrument.

Mr. Jackson will have the trailer here at 6pm to bring over sousaphones and other large instruments. We could use some help loading.

The RDC band room will open up at 6pm. Again, call time is 7pm.

Tonight’s game is not required – if it is not safe for you to attend, stay home! That said, we will play Sleigh Ride at halftime of the game if we have enough symphonic band members. Please try to make it if possible.

If you are not coming tonight – please send Mr. Payne an email –
