LLMEA County Band > 02.19.11

This Saturday, 24 Hempfield Band Members will participate in this year's LLMEA County Band Festival held at Annville-Cleona HS. The students will spend a Saturday working with Dr. Richard Bundy (Penn State University) and Dr. Darryl Bott (Rutgers University) to refine their ensemble skills and prepare an evening concert. The concert is scheduled for 5:00 PM.

Report time for students involved with the festival is 7:15 AM on Saturday morning. Performance dress is the HHS Band Uniform (with Dinkles :)

North Penn Jazz Festival > 02.25.11

The HHS Jazz Ensemble will travel east to North Penn HS on Friday, February 25th. The Jazz Ensemble will be participating in their first "regular season" festival of 2011. With 12 of the best high school jazz groups from the Philadelphia area, this gig will surely be a great experience for our group. Let's show those Philly kids that Lancaster can swing, too!!!!

The Jazz Ensemble will rehearse after school on the 25th. Students should bring all materials needed for performance to school that day. We are looking at a two-hour ride, so we'll need to be rolling by 4:30 PM. HHS Jazz takes the North Penn stage at 7:50 PM. North Penn performs at 10:20 PM with awards to follow. Students should bring money for dinner. While return time will be around 1 AM, parents are welcome to take their students following our performance (with written permission).

Lower Dauphin Indoor Competition > 02.26.11

Both Indoor Groups will travel to Lower Dauphin HS on February 26th for their first TIA action of 2011. BKCG performs at 3:39 PM with Percussion taking the floor at 7:11 PM.

Indoor members should continue to look for updates from Randy and Danny. After getting a sneak peak of both groups over the last couple of weeks, I am INCREDIBLY excited to see what this season will bring!
