St. Clair County Honor Band-- Revised Information

Dear 7th-9th Grade band members, parents, and guardians:

The 2012 St. Clair County Jr. High Honor Band will be held on the campus of St. Clair County High School this year. The clinician/conductor will be Tracy Wright from Ringgold, GA. Mr. Wright is an extremely successful middle school director and routinely conducts honor bands throughout the southeast.

The $25 registration fee will cover the cost of the clinician, lunch (PIZZA!) on the Friday of the event, a participation medal, a master class with a professional musician on each instrument, and an honor band t-shirt to be worn at the concert. The addition of the master class is new this year.

The registration deadline is Thursday, March 8th. Register by bringing a check, cash, or money order made payable to the Moody Band Boosters to the Moody band room with the requested information below. Chair placements will be on Tuesday, March 13th at the St. Clair County High School band room from 4:15-6:00. The honor band will be held at the Saint Clair County HS band room on Friday, March 16th and Saturday, March 17th.

On Friday, the honor band activity is scheduled from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm, and Saturday's schedule is 9:00 am until 11:00 am with the concert at 1:00 in the school gym. Parents and students are responsible for transportation to and from this event and for meeting school attendance requirements when absent from school for event attendance. Participation is strictly voluntary and does not contribute to the grade earned in the Moody band program.

Although participation in the honor band is at the discretion of students and parents (not required), I strongly encourage students to attend this wonderful opportunity. Please return the lower portion of this letter with your $25 registration fee payable to the Moody Band Boosters, with your full name,instrument, and shirt size, to the Moody band room by 3/8.
