Hello CTMB Students!
I hope this email finds you well. I know you all must be going stir crazy considering that we would’ve been gearing up for band camp. Speaking with other Tucson/Phoenix band directors, most schools are having to cancel their band camps (and for some, their competitive seasons) so if there is any silver lining, we are not alone in this. There is still a lot of uncertainty for how the school year will proceed, but rest assured, we will make the most of it! I’ve attached a link to the google drive with our stands tunes for this year. With the help of your feedback and suggestions, this mix of new and old music will hopefully reach a wide range of everyone’s interests. Please note, these folders are not yet complete (many winds/percussion parts are missing and there is still music that needs to be written/purchased) but I wanted to go ahead and put this out there.
I’m also happy to announce: Pending our ability to gather and attend basketball games/other events, we will be introducing a pep band this year beginning in November. This group will be and auditioned-ensemble and rehearse weekly (following marching band season) during the time of Thursday sectionals. Special thanks to Kaesey Borders for her assistance in planning for the creation of this group.
As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.
