Band Camp Dates
This email applies to anyone who is planning on being a member of UCHS Marching Band Next year (including potential March-up students). Band camp 2015 dates will be as follows:
-Percussion/Color Guard Camp: July 20-24
-New Members only- July 23-24 (for any students who are new to band). Also band leadership will need to be here. This is where we will teach our new students how to march.

After band camp, we will begin our regular practice schedule.
Please remember, all students who are in marching band need to attend band camp! Looking forward to another great year!
Jazz Band Dates
The concert dates for the jazz band, thus far, are as follows:
March 24th, 7PM Perform a joint concert with the Louis Romanos Quartet (a professional group)
April 20th (time TBA) perform at YHC with the YHC Jazz Band.
We have also been asked to do the FUMC Oasis group again, and the dates will be announced soon. In addition, we may very well do the gig in Blue Ridge, and the retirement community here in Blairsville again.
As most of you know, with two weeks of winter weather, we have decided to cancel on LGPE this Thursday. Fannin, Towns, White and several others have decided to do so as well. What we have decided to do is to go to Fannin for a festival that will be hosted there. It will be very similar to LGPE, except it will be at Fannin, and will give us more time to prepare. The performance will be at 1:00 PM on March 19th. Students should be receiving field trip permission slips soon and please bring them back as soon as possible. Students will return to school before the school day is out, and the performance will be at Fannin and is open to the public. Looking forward to it!
Jazz Band at Oaisis
Wasn’t sure if this date was in the previous email so I decided to send it again to be sure. The jazz band will be performing at OASIS at FUMC Blairsville on April 16 at 1:00 PM. We will be back before school ends. Thanks!
