Knight Band Notes- Wind Ensemble 11/12/18
We are so proud of our knights! They worked very hard this semester preparing for the District and Region Band Auditions! The Knight Band had 18 students make the 2018 TMEA Region 26 Honor Band and our own Alaina made 1st chair so she will also have the opportunity to perform for the 2018 TMEA Region 26 Honor Orchestra!! WAY TO GO KNIGHTS!!
Next week sectionals will be for students that qualified for the Region Band Concert on Dec. 15. Those days will be scheduled to “Remind” soon. (Normally scheduled sectionals will resume in December).
Students were asked to have a tuner/metronome and pick up for band this year. They have officially been trained on these items in class and will need to be sure to have their own for every day use. You can purchase them from a local vendor, online vendor, or through the band store. The band store has two options:
- tuner/metronome and pick up combo: https://pflugervilleisd.revtrak.net/middle-schools-/Kelly-Lane-MS/klms-band-store/klms-band-supplies/#/v/korg-tuner-metronome-and-pick-up-combo
- Pick up ‘only’ (to be used with a smartphone and tuning app): https://pflugervilleisd.revtrak.net/middle-schools-/Kelly-Lane-MS/klms-band-store/klms-band-supplies/#/v/tuner-pick-up
