BAND NEWS (Apr 8-11)

Hello Mighty Hawk Band!

Big congratulations to the Birdville Winter Guard last weekend at the NTCA Championship Contest. They were awarded 2nd place after moving up a class to Scholastic AA! Also, big congratulations to the Birdville Jazz Ensemble and the Fifth Period Jazz Band for their success at the UTA Jazz Festival last weekend! Both groups were awarded second place in their classes, and Matthew Leeper was awarded outstanding brass performer.

We are looking forward to welcoming friends, family, and supporters of the band program tonight at our Jazz Dinner and Auction at 7:00 at the Hurst Conference Center. Here are a few notes to make the night go extra smooth:

  • If you ordered a plated dinner, tables are numbered with your name on them, but there is a very brief check in.

  • If you ordered a vegetarian meal, there will be a green card paper clipped to your table number. Place it in front of you. There may be more than one per table but the count is exact based on orders.

  • The meal is gluten-free except for the desserts and bread.

  • Spectators will have a different entrance. If you didn’t order food, skip check in.

  • If you ordered a Jazz Player Meal, they have their own section. If you intended for your student to be in your table count, they will sit at your table.

Here is a link to the auction items! Bidding is open now so please look at the items and start making your bids. Raffle and the live auction items will not be available to bid on until the night of the event.

Please wish the 1st and 2nd Period Birdville Percussion Ensembles luck as they prepare for their performance tomorrow at the TCU Percussion Festival. If you would like to attend and show your support, the percussion ensemble will perform at the TCU Music Center at 4:05. Spectator tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the entrance.
