March Band News

It appears spring has sprung, and that means March Madness is upon us.  Decatur band activities always ramp up in March, and this year is no exception.  We have concerts and contests and meetings (oh my), and a couple fundraisers to add to the fun.  And I think I heard something about some college basketball thingy, but can’t really remember.  Must not have been very important…  Anyhow, here’s a couple of near term items you won’t want to miss…

Booster Meeting – Tuesday, March 3, 7:00pm Decatur Band Room
This is the last regularly scheduled Booster meeting before this year’s Big Band Showcase.  We need as many students and parents to attend this meeting as possible, and especially all of our designated Big Band Showcase coordinators, so that we can organize our final push to this year’s biggest fundraiser.  This one is very important.  Please try to attend.

Spring Concert – Thursday, March 5, 7:00 Decatur PA

After hearing them at the Service Area Concert on February 26th, I am very excited for what our bands have in store for us at the Spring Concert this Thursday.  Mr. Chang has definitely inspired these students toward musical excellence, and it appears to be paying off.  Come on out and show your support for the tremendous progress our bands continue to make and you will be rewarded with an evening of great music.

Fundraiser at Costa Vida – Monday, March 9, 5:00-9:00, Costa Vida Fresh Mexican Restaurant, FW Commons Mall
Why not take the night off and enjoy a nice dinner out at Costa Vida Fresh Mexican Restaurant?  Present the Decatur Band promotional flyer with your purchase, and 25% of the purchase price will be donated back to support the Decatur Band.  It’s a win-win for all.

There’s a lot more coming up for the Band in March.  Check out the “Upcoming Events” sidebar and the link to the full calendar for a more complete list.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next week!

Booster Meeting Tuesday, Jan 6th

Happy New Year!
Hope you all had a pleasant and restful holiday season, and you’re ready to jump head first into the new year.  I’m sure your new year resolutions include some volunteer time.  We can help you out with that.

This month’s Decatur Band Booster meeting is coming up next Tuesday, Jan 6th at 7:00 in the Decatur Band room, and we have opportunities for Decatur Band supporters!  Please join us at the meeting to find out what’s coming up.  Maybe you’ll hear of something you’d like to get involved with, or maybe you have some additional ideas to consider.

Even if you can’t make it, we need help from everyone in requesting donations for the benefit auction at this year’s Big Band Showcase.  It’s not that far away (March 28) so we need to get cracking on this now.  Please see the Big Band Showcase Page for more info.

Thanks everyone!  See you Tuesday!

Make plans now to attend this unique concert with special guest clarinetist Christopher Bush on Friday, October 24th, 7:00PM at Decatur High School.  And don’t forget the Masterclass on Thursday, October 23rd at 6:00PM in the Decatur Band Room.  The Masterclass is open to all students and parents from any school, and will be valuable to all musicians (not just clarinetists).  We hope you can take advantage of both of these fantastic opportunities.
