Announcements Week of 11/19/2019

•  Congratulations to the following students who will be participating in honor bands this year:

     –  OBDC Honor Band at The University of Akron:  Jack Darnell, Toree Fogle, and Makayla Kelly

     –  Capital University Honor Band:  Toree Fogle

     –  Ohio State University Honor Band:  Zoe Bowers & Abigail Burger

•  It’s time to start thinking about Solo & Ensemble!  Here are a few items to think about:

     –  The deadline is December 13th.  All registration forms and fees must be turned in to Mr. Smith by this date.  Solos are $19 and Ensembles are $24.  Make checks payable to Perry Band Boosters.

     –  You must secure your own accompanist.  It’s important that you don’t wait until the last minute.  Please see our private lessons/accompanists page on Perryband.com for some suggested accompanists.  It’s highly encouraged that you handle this before Thanksgiving.

     –  It’s HIGHLY suggested/encouraged that all students in Symphonic Winds, or wishing to be in Symphonic Winds, take a solo to contest. 

     –  Solo & Ensemble should not be a highly stressful event, if you are prepared.  This is a fantastic opportunity to improve as a musician.  Preparing a solo, or an ensemble, will help you develop skills that are impossible to teach in a band setting.  Do it!

•  The Palace Concert is next Tuesday!  All PHS band students should arrive at the Palace Theatre no later than 6:30PM.  Please enter through the rear stage door, and put your instruments in the dressing rooms under the stage.  Doors for parents will open at 6:15PM, and the concert will begin at 7PM.  Dress for the concert is your concert uniform.  Please make sure you have everything you need as you will NOT be permitted to perform if you are missing pieces of your uniform. (bow ties, cummerbunds, jackets, pants, etc etc)

We are asking that each student find at least one referral to come in and check out the sale.  This could be anyone from a neighbor, employer, or family.  The more people who stop in, the more mattresses we might sell!

90% of our sales will come from referrals.  We are asking families to find other families in need of a bed and refer them to our sale.  You may be surprised how many people need a new mattress!

All mattresses are brand name and up to 50% off of retail.  Layaway and delivery are available.  Twin beds start at $199, Full $289, Queen $299, and King/CA King from $499.

In order to assist with our marketing campaign, we are asking parents to opt into our texting campaign by texting perry2019 to 484848.This is an easy way for us to forward information directly to you, which you can share with family and friends directly from your phone.  You will only get 4texts max and then it will be deleted after the event.
