The OHS Band Room is the meeting place for all activities this week. We START at the times listed, so please be early.
Colorguard, the school is providing lunch for free, but please be sure to bring snacks and lots of water and Gatorade.
Percussion, the school is providing dinner for you but also bring snacks, water, and Gatorade.
Information regarding next week, Full Band Camp, will be handed out at one of the rehearsals.
OUR CAMPUS IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!!! Please park in the North lot off of Grant Street - the lot between the MS and the HS — and use the school entrance at the Northeast corner of the HS. These are the doors we go through when we walk over from the MS. Right now, the front parking lot is not a good place to park - you will be walking a long way to the band room if you do that. There is a lot of concrete torn up. There is also a large area taped off in the lot where you will park. Please do not cross that tape.
Also, please do not park or be dropped off in the area behind the band room - by the tennis courts. Too much percussion equipment traffic!
Be sure to bring your MARCHING instruments. Tubas, Baritones, etc, you may keep your marching instruments here at school and leave your concert instrument at home to practice on.
Very excited to see all of you this week! The drill is written and looks AMAZING! You will have a lot of fun with this show.
Eyes with Pride, OMB!
