The Stone MS Band will be hosting the District XI Solo & Ensemble Festival on Saturday, April 29 from 8:00am - 5:00pm at Stone MS. We will have over 800 student performances, 20 professional judges, 23 pianos, and concessions. We will need about 50 parent/staff volunteers and 60 student volunteers. Some of you expressed interest in volunteering, so I have attached the sign-up genius links.
There are many great Summer Band Camp opportunities to enhance your child's music education. I have attached a list of the Camps in our area that I highly recommend. There is also a great out-of-town camp at UVa. Let me know if you need a suggestion of what camp is right for your child, or if you need more assistance.
The "Horns of Plenty" event, sponsored by the Music & Arts Store, is a chance to purchase a band instrument and/or upgrade to an instrument that will get you through the HS Band program.
Why purchase an instrument at this event?
This event will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2017 (10:00 AM - 3:00 PM) at Trinity Christian School, 11204 Braddock Rd, Fairfax, VA 22030. If you are interested, you may RSVP online at MusicArts.com/UYS or by calling (703) 281-0400.
Invite your private teacher to the event to help you select the perfect instrument. If you do not have a private teacher, contact me and I would be glad to attend the event with you. There is no obligation to purchase, you can go to just browse the huge selection of instruments. Music & Arts holds this event every year. I am sending this flyer out to all Stone MS Band students.
Your child was recently photographed for the "14th Annual Commemorative Band Composite," being made for the Stone Middle School Band, showing a pictorial history of the program. We are very pleased to have photographed 121 of our band students. The composite is a huge success! Thank you for your support.
Portrait Proofs will be shown in the Stone MS Band room (no appointment necessary):
Thursday, April 20th (2:15 - 8:00 PM)
You may order portraits from North American Theatrical Photographers. Any order payments must be paid in full at the time of ordering. They do not take deposits anymore. Parents can use credit card, check, or cash. Students may not view proofs unless accompanied by a parent.
This project is NOT a band fundraiser. The band does NOT profit from your purchase of your child's portraits. The BAND will receive one pose of every student, mounted on a large board, framed and covered with plexiglas, forming a composite picture of the total band program for the 2016-17 school year.
