Congratulations and This Week!

Good afternoon all,

Here is email number two, as promised.

First, I wanted to send out a CONGRATULATIONS to all the Jazz Students
from BJHS and BHS!

In case you missed it, this weekend, the students from Brunswick Jazz
Programs traveled to Durham, NH to participate in the Clark Terry UNH Jazz
Festival.

This non-competitive festival exists to promote jazz programs across New
England and sees pfrtiipcation from schools as far away as Rhode Island
and Connecticut. All four ensembles performed very well! The Jazz Combo, a
self-directed sextet that writes their own arrangements, came away with an
honorable mention in the Combo Room! The Thursday Night Jazz Ensemble
earned an Outstanding Ensemble award in the ³A² band room. This is the top
award you can receive at the UNH Jazz Festival. I am so proud of the 55
high school jazz musicians and the 24 Junior high musicians who
represented our community with exceptional musicianship and pride.

Now, for some quick calendar items. This is essentially the same info I
gave you last week but I wanted to be sure you all were reminded. PLEASE
REMIND YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER OF MORNING BAND TOMORROW!!!!!!

First, regarding the weather – As of right now, Band-O-Rama is a go. It
will continue to be a go until the school says otherwise.

IF, for whatever reason, they say we can¹t do Band-O-Rama on Tuesday, I
will be in touch regarding plans. We are currently working on a “what if”
since a snow date was never picked.
