One Final Message ...
One more final message to finish the year, talking about Options Selections, Instrument Returns and Maintenance, and a sneak peak at Next Year. And don't forget our concert!
Sorry about the video not lining up! My computer was compiling the concert, so maybe I worked it too hard! Thanks for watching though!
Final Recordings Dates and Times Set
In collaboration with administration and the Phys. Ed. department, we have determined the following times for our final recordings. Please note, each of these times are weather-permitting, as they affect not only outdoor band recordings, but also outdoor Phys. Ed. classes.
Raider's March (Marching Band, Grades 7-9)
We will be recording our Marching Band on Friday, June 4, 2021 during Block 2. Students will need their instruments working and their black pants. Running shoes are acceptable for this performance, and NDC Jackets will be provided to students who don't already own one.
A note about shirts/tops: We expect it to be quite warm, and students will be expected to wear the NDC Music Jackets. What they wear under those jackets should be very light, and may not adhere to NDC's standard dress code. This must be viewed as acceptable, as student health and safety in high-temperature situations must be paramount, and the jackets will enable students to adhere to dress code anyway.
The Greatest Show (Massed Band, All Grade Levels)
We will be recording our Massed Band performance in the gymnasium on Friday, June 11, 2021 during Block 1. Students will need their instruments working and their black pants. Black shoes will be required for this performance. NDC Jackets will be provided to students who don't already own one.
In the event of inclement weather preventing Phys. Ed. from going outside, our backup date is Tuesday, June 15 during Block 1.
We're on the Final Push
6:00 PM MST, February 14, 2021
2:00 PM MST, February 15, 2021
Wednesday, February 10 is Concert Recording Day
On Wednesday, February 10, 2021 students will be recording their first official concert of the year. This concert is to be our Valentine's/Family Day Present to you all.
- Black pants (not tights, sweats, jeans, or skirts).
- Black socks
- Black shoes
- A white shirt with no logos or images on it (t-shirts are okay)
The Wednesday Schedule
3:30 PM to 4:00 PM - Grade 7 Concert Band
4:15 PM to 4:30 PM - Grade 8 Concert Band
4:45 PM to 5:15 PM - The Woodshedders
6:00 PM to 6:30 PM - The Grade 9 and Senior Concert Bands
7:00 PM to 7:30 PM - Panorama
It would be ideal to have a live concert in person where everyone is together at the same time, however this cannot be done this year. This is the most ideal option we have available, and so we ask that you make this schedule a priority.
New: Supervision is available until 6:00 PM that evening, allowing almost all students to attend their session after waiting in the warmth and comfort of the school. If possible, we still request you vacate the school until your recording time to give our hard working custodial staff the space they need to fully disinfect the entire building, but we can still provide safe warm spaces if necessary.
We ask that your students arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before their scheduled recording time, and leave the building immediately after their recording is done.
So when is the concert?
It will also be aired a second time on Facebook and YouTube on February 15, 2020 at 2:00 PM for you to enjoy during your Family Day.
Feel free to join us on Facebook or YouTube and comment along with us!
