Concert Season

Well, another marching season has come and gone. Time really does fly by during marching season! Now is the time to get used to a calmer pace. October is such a busy month and it always seems so strange when so much of the band activity just suddenly stops.

Sometimes it’s hard to believe that only a little over three months has passed since summer band started. Believe us, by the time May comes around and the directors start sharing what they are planning for next year, the exhaustive schedule of the last few months will be a distant memory and we will all be looking forward to a new show and new challenges. So, now that marching season is over, what’s next?  Concert Season!

Freshman Region, Region Orchestra, and regular Region auditions. Participation is required for students in the Wind Ensemble and optional to the other bands.  However, many students still choose to challenge themselves and audition since they have been working on their Region music throughout the marching season.

Auditions for second semester’s band class placement will be held in December. The Directors will select portions of this year’s Region music to be used during the auditions.  If your student is not participating in the Region auditions, the audition music will be handed out in class.

The Winter Concert has all bands performing separately on the stage in the auditorium. Watch the weekly band notes for dates and times of upcoming rehearsals after school to prepare for this concert.

For concert season, students wear school-owned uniforms. However, the boys need a white tuxedo shirt to wear with their jackets and pants. Al’s Formal Wear offers a discount to Clear Brook Band members. Black socks and dress shoes are also needed for all. The girl’s uniform is a full-length black satin dress. Girls will need a pair of closed-toed, all-black dress shoes to wear with their uniform. Flats or Heels are ok.

The bands will soon start rehearsing their UIL music. The UIL Concert & Sight Reading Contest will be in mid-late April. At some point prior to this, the band directors will start after school section rehearsals. Those dates and times will also be posted in the weekly band notes and on the band calendar.

​Final Thoughts...

We understand this is a LOT to take in! At any time, ask any questions you might have!
