We will have two short rehearsals the week of the parade in order to prepare. Those rehearsals will be held on Tuesday, December 4th and Thursday, December 6th from 4:30-6pm at Ashley Ridge High School.
The students will be preparing the music in class and the above rehearsals will be the only opportunity we have to meet as a full ensemble to practice parade formation, procedures, etc.
8th Grade Marching Band students are most certainly included in the parade performance. The music for the parade will be delivered to your middle school next week on either Monday/Tuesday before you leave for the Thanksgiving break.
A link to the recording of our music can be found here for students to practice at home.
