Dear Students and Parents,

 

Winter Concerts - This Week and Next

The West Ranch Bands and Orchestras will perform at winter concerts coming up. The Jazz Ensembles will perform this Friday, December 2nd at 7pm, Orchestras will perform next Thursday, December 8th at 7pm, and Bands will perform next Friday, December 9th at 7pm all in the West Ranch Theater. Tickets are $10, West Ranch/Rancho Pico students are free!

Championships Recap

 

Our marching band had their best performance at state championships on Saturday and went up against some of the toughest competitors in the state of any band size. They took 5th in the state and we’re only 1 point away from 2nd place due to all of the scores being extremely close! They earned 2nd place in music and percussion. We are all very proud of the huge growth and improvement that the band and color guard have achieved this season!

 

Another huge thank you to everyone who made this season possible. We couldn’t have done it without the help from our supportive booster parents!

 

What happens after Marching Band?

 

For our freshman students and parents, I'm sure it has seemed like a crazy busy year so far, and you are probably wondering what comes next. Now that our season has concluded, there will be no more Marching Band practices or classes for the rest of the semester. Rest up and study for finals! 

 

Our "sit down" ensembles (concert bands, jazz bands, orchestras) will continue to rehearse during the day in preparation for our winter concerts (see above for more information).

 

For those that are continuing on to the winter guard and winter percussion seasons, you will have schedules and information communicated to you from Esther and Julio.

 

For everyone else, things will lighten up tremendously! Our concert groups will continue to put on great performances, but will not have any night or weekend commitments. Our jazz bands will have some jazz festivals on Saturdays in the spring semester, and Mr. Leff will communicate that in a separate email.

 

 

Thank you all for your support of West Ranch Music!
