RIMEA BAND FESTIVAL

On Thursday, April 27th, 2017 our band is performing at the RIMEA Band Festival for the first time in roughly ten years. We will play "Movement 1 from Folk Song Suite", "Shenandoah", and "Symphony #1, (In Memorium Dresden)". It will be an incredible opportunity to hear other groups from the state and to recieve critique from professional adjudicators.
 
We will depart after advisory and travel to East Providence High School.  Details will follow about protocols  for advisory that morning. Concert Dress will be our uniform.
 
After the Festival we will stop at Johnston's Burger King for lunch. Please have money for lunch or pack one that does not need to be refrigerated. We will be back to school in time for the afternoon buses.
 
Permission Slips are due Monday, April 10th. (Quiz Grade)

CONCERT UNIFORMS

The Festival Concert is in days. Please assemble all the pieces of your concert uniform to be sure you haven't lost any pieces. Make sure it is clean and wrinkle free.

ECHO TAPS

To honor those who died in service to our country, scores gather at the Veteran's Memorial Cemetery in Exeter to perform Echo Taps. Multitudes surround the center of the cemetery and play Taps one phrase apart. The result is a powerful, solemn performance that is followed by a unison playing in concert with a brief ceremony with speaker James Langevin.
 
Echo Taps will take place Saturday, May 20th, 2017, Armed Forces Day.
 
All brass players are welcome to perform, but anyone is welcome to attend. Reporting times to follow.

The Band and Majorettes will march in the North Providence Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 29th, 2017.
Report to the high school at 11:00am. We will board buses and travel to North Providence High School.
The parade steps off at 1:00pm. We will march down Mineral Spring Avenue and to Governor Notte Park on Rt. 7.
The buses will meet us there and return to Johnston High School.
 
We will perform "America", "Sounds of Sousa" and "Tear the Roof Off".
 
Everyone please return with us on the bus. We will collect uniforms, shakos, and shoes when we arrive back at the school. Mrs. Forte's special learners will wash the uniforms as part of their life-skills education.
