7-1 Symphonic Camp
Greetings Barber Band Family!
We are going to be starting our first annual Symphonic Camp for the 7-1 Band. This is an excellent opportunity for your students to be exposed to some of the very best in the band teaching profession. We are having 7-1 Symphonic Band Camp on Thursday, March 17th. This should be a highly challenging, inspirational, and rewarding experience for your child. The students will get full band rehearsals with our guest conductors as well as group lessons from professionals on each instrument.
This Symphonic Camp is at no cost to the students. At Barber MS, we feel so strongly about providing this opportunity to our students that we are willing to cover the costs completely minus food for Friday night. For Friday night, the students can elect to bring a sack lunch or turn in $10.00 to the black boxes located around the school with a payment envelope marked, “Band Clinic” to have dinner provided for them.
I must stress how important it is for us to have 100% participation at this camp. We really need the whole team there as we are using this event as our catalyst to kick off what will become a very successful concert season. This is a required event and is graded for all 7-1 band students. For Six Flags students, attendance to the Symphonic Camp is in the Six Flags contract that was signed and returned to one of the performing arts teachers at the beginning of the semester. Outlined on the back is the schedule for the Symphonic Camp, as well as the food order. Please sign and return the attached form to Mr. Grogan by Monday, Thursday, February 11th, 2016. With the food order form, please include $10 if your child is going to eat the pizza and refreshments on Friday night, March 17th.
