This year, our Wind Symphony has been extended an invitation to perform in the Bailey Center on the campus of Kennesaw State University in February 2016. The Bailey Center, while on a smaller scale, was modeled after Carnegie Hall and is considered one of the premiere acoustical performance halls in the state and Southeastern United States. This is a wonderful honor for our program as only a handful of bands are selected each year. This means that our students will not only give a concert performance before a panel of nationally known adjudicators in an outstanding venue, but will also receive additional masterclass instruction from some of the finest musicians around. We were selected after having submitted unedited recordings from previous years and will work to make sure we continue to represent our school and community with pride!
I am awaiting final information (performance date and time) but please be sure to come out and hear the students perform in what will be a wonderful opportunity for our program. So please congratulate all the students in our program both past and present because this is the culmination of years of work that has given us the opportunity!
Another way in which our program is STEPping Up. Please continue to show your support and encourage your students to work hard so that we can continue to have invitations and opportunities to perform with our Concert, Marching, Jazz and Winter Programs!
