Congratulations are in order for Decatur Bands. The Decatur Concert Band received a rating of ‘Excellent’, and the Decatur Wind Ensemble received a rating of ‘Superior’ at this year’s Large Ensemble event last Saturday. This is a full grade improvement over last year’s performance for both bands, and makes Decatur one of the top performing schools at this year’s event. Excellent work by all the students, and by our new director, Mr. Chang.
Due to budget limitations, we are unable to obtain a bus to transport the Jazz Band to the Graham Kapowsin Jazz Festival next Saturday (March 22). We are looking for a few cars and drivers to help get the Jazz Band students and their instruments down to Graham Kapowsin High School so they can participate in this event. We need to leave Decatur at around 9:00 AM and expect to return to Decatur by approximately 3:30-4:00 or so. If you are willing to help out, please contact Mr. Chang at firstname.lastname@example.org.
