Winter Percussion Uniform Instructions
Sunday, 31 January 2016 21:30

Winter Percussion Uniforms

Uniforms are to be maintained by each member and kept at their home.

Cleaning Instructions: Cleaning instructions were included with the uniform.  Please follow them carefully.  It is critical that you DO NOT USE A CLOTHES DRYER for either the shirt or the pants.  Be sure to wash them both in cold water on a handwash/gentle cycle, and then hang them up to dry after each performance.

Check Pants Length:  Some of the pants are too long for some members (as they only came in one length), and you will need to see that they're hemmed prior to the February 13th competition.  Please DO NOT CUT any material away because the pants will be used in future years by other members.

Black Tank Top:  A solid black tank top may be worn underneath the shirt to cover any skin at the waistline that may be exposed during movement.

Undergarment:    Due to the form fit of the pants, boxers cannot be worn.  Members will need some sort of compression undergarment to achieve a snug fit that won't be too bulky under the pants.

Tall, Solid Black Socks:  Tall, solid black socks will need to be worn with the uniform.

Shoes:   Black marching shoes will need to be worn during each performance.

Winter Percussion Info
Sunday, 31 January 2016 20:29

Hello Everyone,

With our first performance fast approaching I thought it was time to check in and update everyone on our progress and things to come. There is a lot of information here so please be sure to read it all. As of this weekend, we are playing and moving our first two production numbers. The third will be added on this week. It is early, so we mostly just have an outline that will continue to be embellished as the season progresses. Musically, we have started on the final production number, but that will not be ready for public performance for a while. This stuff is hard to play!! The students are working hard to rise up to the challenges that this music presents. Progress is slow, but steady. Diligence and persistence on everyone’s part will make this come together in impressive fashion.


Contest Volunteers.
The logistics of this activity require quite an entourage of people to get us down the road, and for that we rely on the support all of you. Parents can assist us in the following ways.


Bus/Competition chaperones: We will need bus chaperones for each contest. Its SUPER easy and a great way to get to know the kids.  If you think this is something that you would be interested in doing, you must have a current background check on file. The background check’s are now processed online and require a $13 fee. You can find that form on the band’s website, under “forms” in the left navigation panel. You can also find it in the Dropbox link that Mr. Frye had sent out in an email, earlier this season. If you think you may have filled out a background check sometime over the past 2 years you may not have to fill out a new one.   If you DO need a new one, it will take 5-7 days for your background check to be completed so please plan accordingly. Also, ALL parents wishing to volunteer must watch the Anti Bullying webinar, which is now a state requirement. If you have any questions regarding background checks, webinar or need more information on being a chaperone, please contact Rita Keeling at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .


The link to sign up and chaperone is Sign Up Now! As of now, the times are TBD. We will not have a performance time or an itinerary until a week prior to each contest. Once we know the performance time, the sign up genius link will be updated.


Equipment Load/Unload Crew: We will need adults to help the students load/unload the semi to go to contests and also people to help move equipment at contests. If interested, please contact me directly.


What is IPA?

Community Night:
Every year HSE and Fishers HS take turns hosting Community Night. This is basically a home show just for our parents and friends where we celebrate the hard work of all of the winter pageantry members in the entire school corporation. In one stop, you will get to see the performances of out percussion ensemble, Fishers High School percussion, as well as both high school colorguards and the JV Junior High guard. This year the event takes place on Friday March 4th at Fishers High School. The first performance will begin at 7:00. This date was already on the calendar as a rehearsal for us, but has since been updated to reflect the performance. The students will rehearse shortly after school and then pack and travel to FHS.
Please be sure to invite many friends and relatives. This is a FREE concert.

 

Thank You,
Alan Frye

Dear Band Parents,

As you know, on Saturday, February 20, Hamilton Southeastern will be the host of a  Winter Guard International  regional competition.  We are excited to announce that 32 guards from 7 states will be coming for preliminary and semi final competitions.

This is an all day event and we need many volunteers to make it a success.  There are three hour shifts throughout the day.  Please look over the link below and sign up for one of them.

Remember that the funds raised from this event will go to the band’s  general  fund ,  so all the band members will benefit from its success.

We truly appreciate your help.

Sincerely,

 

Sherilee Bertellotti
