2016-2017 Competition Show

Sir Elton John - by Tom Wallace
With musical genres spanning from orchestral to rock, and familiar songs bridging generations of fans from the '70s to today's youth, this program of music by the legendary Sir Elton John will find relevance with performers and listeners alike. Imaginatively arranged by Tom Wallace with logical sensitivity given to the visual ebb and flow.
(Yes, the images in the links below are fuzzy. That's just what's out there.)

  • Funeral for A Friend (2:06)
    This dramatic arrangement of the Elton John song begins with a distant funeral march accompanied by the sound effects of howling winds and tolling church bells. It's a musical adventure that will take you from stately orchestral sounds to intense rock.
  • Love Lies Bleeding (1:28)
    Some of Sir Elton's best writing, including a reprise of Funeral for a Friend, can be found in this tuneful rocker. Complete with melodic and harmonic surprises, this chart is a perfect production number on its own or in an Elton John show.
  • Your Song (1:26)
    One of Elton John's biggest hits provides a dramatic change of pace as a field show production number. This arrangement produces a positive uplift with gentle melodies building to an emotional peak before dramatically fading away.
  • Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting) (2:08)
    A percussion feature sets up the immediately recognizable hook of this hard rocking arrangement. The excitement never lets up as the chart builds to a powerful conclusion to the Sir Elton John show!

Chorus joins with Concert/Symphonic, and Theater presents on Wednesday. Don't miss Awards Night on Friday as we acknowledge the hard work of all our students throughout this year.

    Trip Update - March 31 (Back to Contents)

    We're back from Spring Break and our Spring Trip! The kids performed WONDERFULLY as always, and received much positive feedback and praise from both the crowd and the people handling our student group throughout the trip. Everyone had a great time, in spite of the bug that started running through the group late in the trip. If you missed this year's trip, plan on going next year. It's a very rewarding experience.

    Many pictures have been uploaded to the website provided by the tour company. I believe you can download pictures you like now. We should be receiving info on purchasing a CD of all the pictures soon. We'll get that info out as soon as we have details on dates and amounts.

    To those who went, Thank You for a Fabulous Trip and Making Wonderful Memories! Students, you're Great! We love the positive comments we get every year. You don't hear the people asking about you after you pass by in a parade. Sometimes, I think we need a banner at the BACK of the parade so people know who you are AFTER they hear you! Your positive behaviour is the reason we're welcomed in many places that other student groups are not. Keep up the good work!

    Chaperones, it doesn't happen without your willingness to take time off from work and your life and dedicate those days to our students. For that, we love you. Sure, it can be physically exhausting, but it's a great mental break from real life, and a ton of fun too! Above everything else, it's a very rewarding experience watching our students (and some of us) have new experiences and gain confidence to travel on our own in years to come.

    Until next year... keep your passports handy, your mind open, and see as much of the world as you can.


    A Message from your Band Director: (Back to Contents)

    Update - March 27, 2016

    Hi Everyone,

    Well we're back from a fabulous trip to Savannah, Miami and Nassau. The bands played well, performances were outstanding, highly received and some of the best compliments were how well mannered, behaved and orderly our band students were. Hi 5!!!!!

    Regretfully a number of us, including myself, came back with a bug. I think I'm about 85% done with mine and wow what a busy week we have.

    Into the Woods Rehearsals are in full stream
    Monday 3-7 in the auditorium
    Tuesday Rehearsal time TBA [upd: 3-6]
    Wednesday 3-6
    Thursday/Friday Rehearsal time TBA [upd: 3-6]
    Saturday 3-7

    Upcoming Events

    • Audition Music will come on line and and will be handed out Monday. Start working on it.
    • BBQ Sale tickets distributed starting Monday March 28
    • The AutoBell Sale is still going on. Please support it.
    • We also have Walnut Creek and PNC events and opportunities available.

    We are in dire need of massive support for these fundraisers.
    Also we are in dire need of Fair Share completion. Our budget was set tightly based on Fair Share Payments and we are presently severely in a non-operational position due to delinquent fair share payments. Our Band needs your support and attention to this detail. This affects our existance for the rest of the year, including show design, staffing, scholarships and future travel.

    Please update your Fair Share Account asap and support fundraisers.

    Seniors who are in arrears with Fair Share: Your account will have to revert to the school and this will affect graduation procedures. On April 10, accounts will revert to the school. As great as our opportunities are offered to the band, we cannot financially keep going forward without your attention to this matter.

    Please keep your band director financially Happy!!!!!

    Mr. S
