Congratulations to all of our Campbell Area Bands who performed at Optimist Band Festival!

This Week

Jodie Blackshaw Clinics

Many of our band students were treated to some clinics by Jodie Blackshaw of Australia.   Ms. Blackshaw is a composer, educator and conductor.   In her clinics she worked on pulse,  listening skills and leadership skills.   All of these skills will directly carry over into our band classes.  We are looking forward to experimenting with these after the break!  

Please Note:
After the break all band classes are back to normal. 

Monday April 4  (Day 5) - Perry Grade 7 sectionals, Grant Road Grade 8 sectionals, and McVeety 6, 7, and 8 sectionals

In Grade 6 Band 

Congratulations to all the Grade 6's on a wonderful performance at Optimist Festival.    You performed wonderfully, had a great clinic, and were an absolute pleasure to be with.    The Perry and Grant Road Grade 6's worked with Sigurd Johnson from Minot.    The Massey, McVeety, and RCS grade 6's worked with Jodie Blackshaw from Australia.    After the break all the Grade 6's will be getting new music and we will begin preparation for our final concert and school tour.   

In Grade 7 Band

Congratulations to all Grade 7 students on their Optimist performance.   They as well performed wonderfully, had a great clinic and were a pleasure to be around.    The Grade 7's worked with Sigurd Johnson from Minot.   We will be getting some new music after the break.   We will begin preparing for our Moose Jaw trip and for our year end concert.    

In Grade 8 Band
