Mr. Rose Email 4/6/2020
Good Evening Patriot Band Family,
Just a few reminders about this weeks upcoming zoom meetings, plus more music to practice!
First off, I am changing tomorrows zoom meetings. Instead of meeting in separate classes, I think it might be more beneficial to meet together at 10 am. I know there will be a lot of discussion geared towards marching band, and I figured that it would be more productive to meet together as one cohesive band family. I also password protected the conference for more privacy. Below is the information:
On Thursday we will also be hosting our first section leader meeting. Due to Mrs. Rose having a doctor appointment at 11, I have to change our meeting time to 1:30 pm. Below is the information for that meeting:
The company that we ordered music from has just sent me an e-mail letting me know that the publishers have agreed to release as much music as possible, digitally for school use until July. Anything that I have ordered in the past 3 years that has a digital copy from the publishers has been uploaded for student use. If there is something that you have always wanted to play that you have heard another band at Cousino perform, it is probably on this list. Here is how you access that:
Copy and paste this access code: cDsqDMa/Y7o=
It is only available to view on your device, printing the part cost extra.
There is a live competition going on right now between members of the Cousino band. You simply record a piece of music of your choosing, with your friends using the Acapella app and you post it to the bands facebook or twitter page. Instructional video and other terms are located on social media as well. Submissions are due Friday at noon and the winner (as determined by Mrs. Rose) will get lunch on me. Yes, I will pick up food, sanitize the bag, and drop it off to the winners house while all maintaining proper social distancing protocols. Get practicing.
Also, one more opportunity, the Lone Star Wind Ensemble is doing a virtual band open to everyone! What you do is you fill out the release, download the music, and record and submit your part. The song is our national march - The Stars and Stripes Forever by Sousa (there is a HUGE piccolo soli - go for it!!!). I recorded mine earlier today on both clarinet and saxophone, I hope we can get a few more to do the same. Submissions are due tomorrow by midnight (central time). Here is the website with all of the information.
That is all for me for this week. This time next week, I should be holding the new baby! Let me know if you have any questions!
