Marching Band Festival
by John Szczerowski - Friday, 22 August 2014, 2:00 PM

Good Afternoon, Directors:

I have attached the MB Festival registration form for anybody that would like to get a jump start on the paperwork. Please be sure to keep this on your radar if you plan to attend this year's festival. The beginning of the year is extremely busy for school secretaries and payroll, so it would be wise to follow up with them when you send in your PO and check requests.

Dropbox Folders

Hi all,

Now that school year is wrapping up, can we start to get rid of the Festival comments on Dropbox? I've taken off Manton's, but obviously don't want to delete anyone elses incase they haven't backed it up somewhere else.

I'd like to get back to using my Dropbox, but it's still full. Thanks for your consideration!

Imperatrix by Alfred Reed
by Cindy Swan-Eagan - Tuesday, 20 May 2014, 7:06 AM

I am looking to purchase a condensed score for Imperatrix - it is out of print, and this is for a wonderful retired band director - the one who commissioned Alfred Reed to write this piece.  I was wondering if anyone has it in their library and I could purchase the condensed score (not the full score, please) to this piece?  

I should add that the piece is not out of print, nor are full scores, only the condensed, and that is what this man wishes - if you like I will simply purchase a full score to replace your condensed, if you have it!!

Hi Everyone,

I hope your concerts went well and your Memorial Day preparations are coming along in spite of the rain.

I am looking for ALL the brass, piano and percussion parts for Meadowlawn March by John O'Reilly.  Level 1.  I bought it in the 1/2 price pile and the file was full but they are all double woodwind parts.

Hi everyone,

Any suggestions for drum major camps in Michigan (or close) other than MSU or CMU? Looking for an alternative for one of my students...thanks! :-)
