We are now starting to form groups, pick out pieces, and begin the process of preparing for Solo & Ensemble contests in March. Anyone interested should inform Mr. Schweizer, and be ready for more information coming soon!
Members of all curricular ensembles (MS Band, MS Chorus, HS Band, HS Chorus) are expected to reflect on our 12/5 concert performance and turn in the written reflection. This work should be completed in-class. For those absent on reflection days, the criterion for reflection are as follows:
#s 1 - 3: List three positives for each piece performed.
#s 4 - 6: List three areas for improvement in each piece.
#7: Highlight at least one positive aspect of each performing group of which you were not a part of.
#8: What do we need to do as a group to better perform on future concerts.
Students are expected to write in complete sentences and use musical terminology whenever possible (i.e. references to measure numbers, dynamics, articulations/diction, etc.). All journals must be completed NO LATER THAN Monday, December 17, 2012.
