On Saturday our rookies did a fantastic job working on the band room and storage room. Our friday night performance went very well, big thank you to the CHS Ladies in Red for help with the Alma Mater. I've received a lot of positive feedback from our first home game performance. Including Burton's director Mr. Stewart. I'm very excited about the present and future of our band. Normal rehearsal schedule this week, we have a lot of work to do so stay healthy and be here. Call time Friday is 4:30 for the Honaker game. Be sure do be dressed and loaded at call time.

On September 28th the CHS Band is scheduled to attend the Dobyns Bennet contest in Kingsport, TN. Due to circumstances out of my control that festival has been cancelled, which leaves us with an open date. At rehearsal yesterday we had our seniors vote on what they wanted to do that weekend. After looking at all options our seniors voted to attend the Chilhowie Apple Festival that weekend. The Chilhowie contest is in its 61st year and has a great slate of judges so it should prove to be a good learning experience for our band. If there are any questions about the change in schedule please email Mr. Brown.

Call time this friday is 4:30pm for the Castlewood game. Band shirt, blue jeans, belt and tennis shoes. We have another booster meeting for band festival planning on September 17th at 6:30pm. We need as many parents as possible to be there. The Lonesome Pine Band Festival is one of the biggest in southwest Virginia, it will not work unless we have parents there to help!
