Here is the latest news and information about the Hinsdale South High School Hornet Band.
Wind Symphony Congratulations to the students who were selected for the 2018-2019 Wind Symphony! Please see the roster below the announcements.
Solo & Ensemble Students are currently preparing for Solo & Ensemble contest, which is on Saturday, March 3rd. Please let us know of any conflicts ASAP so we can make sure to schedule you at the correct time. Students must have the original copy of their music on the day of contest and the measures must be numbered to avoid a lowered score. Dress classy for this event; no jeans, t-shirts, sweatshirts, or gym shoes.
Soloists, be sure to pay your accompanist (Mrs. Mueller, Ms. Boso, or Mrs. Avci) the $20 fee the week before contest. If this is an issue, please see Mrs. B.
Pops Concert Our annual Pops Concert is on Wednesday, March 21st at 7:30pm in the auditorium. We will be playing a fun set of music and will be joining the choir and orchestra for the evening.
Lessons We have outstanding lesson teachers here at Hinsdale South and we highly recommend lessons for all students, regardless of their ability level. Our wonderful administration and school board are great supporters of the music department. It is an invaluable opportunity for you to take advantage of the high caliber lesson teachers that have been made available to you. Lessons are very affordable, only costing you between $12-16 per 1/2 hour lesson. If you would like more information about our lesson teachers, please feel free to email or call me. Your student can just sign up for a lesson on the sheets right outside Mrs. B's office door. Ms. Dudek: flute Ms. Pirtle: clarinet and saxophone Mr. Strauss: trumpet and French horn Mr. Torrey: low brass and jazz Mr. Graham: percussion
Contact & Communication We have setup a Remind (formerly Remind101) for the band, which is a text-based communication system that we frequently use to send important information, reminders, or updates. We highly recommend signing up for our Remind so we can easily communicate with everyone. To sign up for the band’s Remind, text @mrmaag to 81010.
