Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

I’m sure you enjoyed last Thursday’s High School Band concert with the addition of Patton and Duniway students. It’s always exciting to hear an ensemble of that size, especially when they sound that good! A nice performance from the Percussion Class as well.

The Jazz Band put on another excellent performance at Jazz Night. They just get better and better every time I hear them – their musicianship is excellent, no doubt a result of their many hours of early morning rehearsals and quality instruction. While all the performers did a great job, one of the highlights of the evening was the performance by the Newby Jazz Choir. This was the first time I have heard them and they really impressed the audience with their swinging renditions of Tuxedo Junction and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.

After an initial burst of activity, the Donate page of the Mac Band website has been patiently waiting for visitors so please tell everyone about Mr Barton’s upcoming 50K run and encourage them to pledge. Let’s get that progress bar moving again!
