War Eagle Band, We hope that everyone has had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break full of family, friends and FUN. The holiday season has officially begun and with that so has Concert season and Winter Guard season for the War Eagle Band Program. There will be a lot going on in the next three weeks.
#1- The ORHS band will be hosting the TMEA Region 9 Phase 1 Auditions this coming Friday and Saturday. We will need 15 – 30 student volunteers to help monitor the audition rooms. A sign up sheet will be up in the band hall for you to volunteer. Please sign up to work either Friday night from 3pm to 10pm or Saturday afternoon from 1pm to 7pm….or both if you would like. You will receive volunteer points towards your letter jacket as well as any other volunteer hours you might need for another organization.
#2- Freshman will have the opportunity to register for TMEA Freshman Region Band auditions. Entry forms will go out on Monday. The entry fee is $16.00 and can be paid through the SCHOOL STORE (NOT CHARMS).
