OK, this has nothing to do with pep band. Now we are talking about HOCKEY BAND. Here is the information:
Every year (so far) the University of Michigan invites the Howell High School band to be the substitute pep band for the UofM Hockey Team for one game. This year that game occurs on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18TH, 2014!! (We will be playing against New Hampshire) We are currently ranked no.8 in the country preseason and UNH is ranked 18th, so it should be a great game!
Auditions will be held tomorrow during band class. The audition pieces have been provided.
1. The game is at Yost Ice Arena in Ann Arbor MI.
Your Child MUST attend 3 of the 4 following rehearsals:
Oct 8 3:30 pm After marching band
Oct. 13 5:pm Before evening rehearsal
Oct 15 During 2nd Hour
Oct 16 3:30 pm after marching band
2. We are being driven by bus to Ann Arbor, with a few of the children being driven by chaperone. If you are adamant about your child not being driven by a chaperone (we do screen them), please let me know so i can make sure they ride the bus.
5. Report time is this Saturday, oct 18th. at 4:30 PM. Bus will depart at 5:00 pm.
6. The game is at 7PM. Tickets are available through through the University of Michigan Ticket Office (google-able) if you would like to come watch!
7. Your child will receive a box lunch, a t-shirt, and a ride to the game. Such a deal!
8. Return time is anywhere from 10:30-11:30 so make sure to be checking for those texts around that time :)
Ok Some of this info is subject to change, but mostly it is pretty solid. Any questions, email me at Smigellj@howellschools.com
