DeLay Band


Band News

We had a great Fall Concert and would like to thank everyone for participating and listening.
We also had a great Veteran's Day Performance. We played extremely well, even in the cold.
The Holiday Concert must be split into two concerts that will be held in DeLay's gymnasium.
    December 1,    6:30 PM   Symphonic and Honor Band
    December 12,  6:30 PM   Beginner Band

Monday: Beginner Practice Day, Honor and Symphonic extra practice
Tuesday: Symphonic Woodwinds, Honor Woodwinds, Beginner extra practice
Wednesday: Symphonic Brass, Honor Brass, Beginner extra practice
Thursday: Honor Percussion, Beginner extra practice
Friday: Practice before and after school until 5:15 (Students need a ride as there is no bus)

Students are required to practice and pass off their music. Please have them practice daily so they learn to sound great and develop good work ethic. We have hired teachers to help work with our students most days after school. Woodwind, Brass and Percussion rehearsals are mandatory for Symphonic and Honor Band before or after school, preferably on their assigned day.

Hoodie sales are put on hold until we have more purchases. We have a few larger sizes in stock, but no smalls. We need a minimum of 12 hoodies to be purchased for them to be made and shipped. Bring $25 to order one through Thursday, 11/17. If we can't get 12 orders, that money will be refunded.


Band Fees are due. Students will receive invoices next week that need to be paid as soon as possible. You can log into www.charmsoffice.com (or Charms Blue App) with the code delaymsband and your student's ID number to see your balance anytime. www.delayband.org/charms will help with charms questions.
