(Somewhat) Weekly Update 9-20-23
This past weekend, our CV Marching Band had our first competition of the season and let me just say, they CRUSHED it!! I could not be prouder of the attention, dedication, and level of professionalism that your students put on every performance. They dialed it up to 11 for Saturday and played their hearts out in easily one of the best performances so far. We placed second in our division, but rest assured that it was a very slim margin. We've got some work to do, but they are well on their way!
FRIDAY FOOTBALL GAME - HARRISBURG
Our football game this week is a home game against Harrisburg. It is also our Bands in the Stands Night!! The middle schoolers joined us during the school day on Tuesday to rehearse for our halftime performance, and I can't wait for you to hear them! Our schedule will stay relatively the same this week, but I wanted to make sure we're all on the same page:
3:00 - Students can stay after school in the band room until the game
3:45 - Concession stands will open up for students to grab dinner
4:45 or 5:00 - Start getting dressed in uniform
5:30 approx - Middle school students start to arrive, warm up with their sections
6:15 approx - Band marches into the stadium
6:33 - Harrisburg band performs pre-game
7:00 - Game starts (They are having one of the choir students perform the National Anthem this week due to it also being our Salute to Service night)
Halftime - BITS performance after the dance team
Post Game - CV performs their field show
Next week, our football game is on Thursday at Chambersburg. Details will come soon about what their report time will be.
Next Saturday, 9/30, we have our Eastern York competition. We will be having a rehearsal that Saturday just like we did before Conestoga Valley. Our performance time is currently scheduled for 7:30PM and awards will be around 10:00PM, so it's going to be a late night. I will send out details next week about what time our Saturday rehearsal will be.
I believe that is everything for now. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out and I will get back to you. Have a great day!
