8th Grade “Check out the 100 night”

Hello 8th Grade Band Members!

The directors, staff, and members of the Marching 100 would like to invite you to come “check us out” at one of our rehearsals. We want to give you a glimpse of what being a member of the Marching 100 is like. You will have the opportunity to learn drill, talk to current Marching 100 members, and see a run through of this year’s show, “Gotham.”

The rehearsal is on Tuesday, October 20, 2015, and we will follow this schedule:

  • 5:00pm: Meet at Public School Stadium, watch the Marching 100 rehearse
  • 5:30pm: Learn drill!
  • 6:00pm: Perform the first few sets of “Gotham” on your own!!!
  • 6:15pm: Watch the Marching 100 perform “Gotham”
  • 6:30pm: Enjoy dinner (Provided by ABOB) with the Marching 100
  • 7:30pm: ABOB Meeting begins (performances by the Marching 100 and middle school band)

Students will need to bring the following:

  • Instrument
  • Music for the performance at the ABOB meeting
  • Uniform for the performance at the ABOB meeting (black pants/shoes, white shirt) – you can wear it to rehearsal if you’d like.
  • Tennis shoes for rehearsal

*Dinner (pizza) will be provided by ABOB.*

Parents are invited to rehearsal as well! You are welcome to watch, and Ms. Cudney will be answering any questions you might have about your student participating in the Marching 100 next year.

Thank you for your time, and we look forward to seeing you on October 20!
