Band Concert Rehearsals & Recording Sessions
This email will serve as some updates on the rehearsal needs and recording schedules for the remainder of the school year. The rehearsals will be primarily for the Concert Band (1st Period) and the Symphonic Band (5th Period) ensembles to put their concerts together with the percussion students.
The upcoming recording session will be for the Wind Ensemble (4th Period) and Jazz Ensemble (Morning Ensemble) as they will have professional recordings of the ensembles completed so that we can submit to be a part of an invited performance next year. We are submitting the Wind Ensemble recordings to be evaluated by the Georgia Music Educators Association committe (one of the most prestigous opportunities for GA High School Ensembles), the USC Honor Band Clinic (a national clinic with renowned clinicians), and the Music for All Regional Concert Band Festival (a regional festival with renowned judges and clincians). We are submitting the Jazz Ensemble recordings to the JEN (Jazz Educators Network) national conference, and to the GMEA committee. If selected by any of these experiences, it would be the first time that ANY Cambridge Music Ensemble has ever been selected to perform at an Invited Honors Experience. Because of this prestigous opportunity, it is essential that ALL students be in attendance for the recording sessions.
