Uniform Fitting Success!

Thursday Sep 13th

Thank you to everyone who helped! What a huge help, we could not have done it alone. I swear we set some record for most band students fit uniform with the least amount of time!.

MSU Marching Band Showcase

This event will take place at Bobcat Stadium Saturday, October 6 at 3:00pm.

Here is a schedule (est.) of how Saturday will look...

12:30pm Report to PHS Football Field for Combined Marching Rehearsal

1:15 Change into Uniform, Pack, and Load Equipment

1:45 Depart for MSU's Bobcat Stadium

2:30 Arrive, Unload, and Warmup

3:00 Performances by Park High, Belgrade, Bozeman, Flathead High, Seraph Brass Quintet, and the MSU Spirit of the West Band.

5:30 Load Buses to Park High 6:15 Arrive at Park High, Unload and Clean up 6:30 Dismissal

*I can already tell we will need some parent support to pull this off. Distributing snacks, hot chocolate, hand warmers, schlepping gear, cheering for you band at the performance! You know, band stuff! More specifically, we will need to transport a lot of percussion equipment (marimbas/amps/drums) so if anyone has a water-resistant trailer we could borrow - It would save us from having to rent one!

MSU Marching Band Showcase Scheduling Conflicts: Volleyball @ Miles City

Girls Soccer @ Laurel 4pm

Boys Soccer @ Laurel 6pm

SAT Test @ Park High Library (7:30am to 1:30pm): Students taking this test should be finished before we leave to MSU.

*If you (the student) are involved in either of these activities, please contact me if you haven't done so. Like we've spoken about, it is hard to perform a marching band show with "holes" and good communication will increase our chance of success.

This is a "Course-Required Performance" but students with school-related absences will be given the chance to make up the performance with an extra "flexable" or "non-required" athletic band performance.

There are many variables that come into play when selecting which activities we participate and not participate in. I trust your decision within this conflict is thoughtfully conceived and can be firmly stood behind so I may stand along side your decision. - Stannard

Show Ideas

Calling all creative minds

There are a lot of "Park and Bark" opportunities in our drill that I would love to fill up with some imaginative movement. If you have an idea for one or more of these sections, please bring your ideas to the table at the beginning of next week. With all of your collective creativity harnessed, we will have an incredible show!

All-Northwest Band, Wind Symphony, & Jazz Auditions

Due October 1st

Individual student auditions for the All-Northwest Band Festival are due to garrett.stannard@livingston,k12,mt,us

by October 1st.

Auditions materials can be found here:

At Park High by far, your best opportunity to be accepted into the biennial All-Northwest Conference is through auditioning for the "All-NW HS Wind Symphony". This ensemble is exclusively made up of students from schools with a population of 500 or fewer. Past students, Cameron Reichert (Spokane '15, Seattle '17), Hailey Hallstead (Seattle '17) Christian Garcia (Spokane '15), and Lexi Klawitter (Spokane '15) have participated. Go for it! "You miss all the shots you don't take."
