Upcoming Event Information
FALL CONCERT ( Willow Wood Bands) - Monday, October 7 @ Tomball Memorial HS Auditorium
The Honor, Symphonic, Concert I, and Concert II Bands will perform. Warm-up and approximate performance times are posted below. Students will wear the lower half of the formal concert uniform (black dress pants, black dress socks that are at least mid-calf in length, and black dress shoes) with the 2019-2020 Willow Wood Band T-shirt (tucked in prior to arrival) for this concert.
Students who have not yet paid for their band T-shirt will not receive it until payment of $10 (cash preferred) has been remitted to the Willow Wood front office. See Diane Wishkoski for payment. Please take care of payment by Monday, October 7, in order to get your shirt in time for that evening's concert.
The first performance for the Concert III Band will take place at the Winter Concert in December. This will allow time to cover our current curriculum without the addition of also working on performance music as we continue to develop individual musicianship in this group.
8th GRADE NIGHT WITH THE TMHS ROARIN' BLUE BAND - Friday, October 11
All 8th grade band members will be guests of the Tomball Memorial HS Band. Students will meet at TMHS, eat dinner with the high school band members (pizza and drinks provided), and then travel and sit with the high school band at the TMHS home football game that evening. Willow Wood Band members will play their instruments in the stands with the high school band, and we will watch the Roarin' Blue Band's halftime show.
This is always a favorite activity of our 8th graders and a great evening for all. For more information, see the copy of Mr. Easton's email, pasted below.
