SUNDAY E-NEWS (Aug30-Sept 3)

Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!

I’d like to thank everyone for being an awesome audience and making our End of Summer Band Preview Show last Tuesday a huge success. I also wanted to congratulate everyone on a super successful performance at our first away football game last Friday vs. Keller Central. I could not have been happier with how well the band travelled, performed, and most importantly enjoyed being in a football game atmosphere again. It was a great week for sure!

We’re looking forward to a solid week of rehearsals hoping to finishing out most of Mvt. 2 of “The Ruins” as well as having a great performance at our First Home Football Game of the Season vs. Haltom High School at the FAAC on Friday night.
