ISSMA Jazz Band, Friday Night, March 6th at Whiteland
Please come to Whiteland High School to see Jazz Combo at 7:30 PM and Jazz Ensemble at 9:50 PM. Free Admission! A reminder that Mr. Carney is still looking for a chaperone for the jazz band on Friday. While he is riding the bus both ways, it would be great to have an extra adult or two while Jazz Combo is warming up and performing in case one of the Jazz Ensemble kids needs something. If you are willing, please let Mr. Carney know and you can connect to talk specifics.

Winter Guard IHSCGA State Events Begin!
We are extremely excited to enter into state competition after wrapping up at Northview.  Find the Full Prelims Schedule HERE.

The Semi-Finals schedule is blank as this is similar to how WGI ran. We will know the schedule for Semis following the conclusion of Prelims. We are LAST to perform in the last round of prelims, so it will be a quick and chaotic turn around to receive a Semis slot. When the schedule is released, the performance time will be immediately posted on Facebook and BAND. A logistical schedule will be created shortly after, and Kelly will email it out, as well as post it on BAND and our Facebook group.
