Here are some of the photos from the Jazz Ensemble’s trip to the Lakeside Jazz Festival. This event took place in Port Orange, FL on April 16, 2011.
While at the festival we were fortunate enough to see the jazz ensembles from the University of North Florida, Spruce Creek High School, Florida State University, University of Central Florida, and the Navy Band Southeast’s TGIF.
The University of South Florida’s “HOT Day” will be taking place on Saturday, September 10, 2011. Students who participate in “HOT Day” will rehearse with the USF Herd of Thunder Marching Band, watch the USF vs. Ball State, and perform with the USF Herd of Thunder Marching Band and 1,000 other high school students from across the state!
The price to participate will be $30.00-$40.00 per person. We’ll determine the actual price in the next few weeks. This price will include:
- Ticket for USF vs. Ball State
- “HOT Day” T-shirt
- Transportation to and from “HOT Day”
If you are planning to participate in this event we need your trip money by August 22, 2011 (the first day of school). You can pay it anytime during the summer, or during next year’s band camp. We are getting this information out early, because participation is on a first come, first serve basis. Once the 1,000 tickets are out, they are out.
This is the music we are planning on using for the 2011-2012 Halftime Show. We’ve posted it here for you to listen to, as well as for our Drum Major hopefuls to practice with. We will be distributing music to students on Monday, May 16, 2011. There will be an evening rehearsal with the students of Bayonet Point Middle School and Hudson Middle School to read through this show music, some stands music, and the fight song and alma mater.
