Mr. Ventura would like to congratulate Michelle Zhong, Jim Huang, and Jason Swope for a very successful All – State weekend in Savannah, GA (March 3-5). All three were challenged with a difficult selection of music and prepared it for their wonderful performance on Saturday. Their conductors were Mr. Fred Martin and Mr. Robert W. Smith, both national award winning band directors.
The PMS Symphonic Band will have their annual Pre Large Group Performance Evaluation (LGPE) concert on March 15th at 7:00 in the PMS gymnasium. Please come out and watch the students perform in front of a live panel of judges, be critiqued and improve for their LGPE event on March 25th at Trickum MS.
The Symphonic Band members are having an extra rehearsal on March 17th from 4:30 – 7:30 PM. This rehearsal will be our “last push” towards receiving high marks at LGPE and also serve as a recording session for the Middle School Band Clinic at the University of Georgia and the Southeastern United States Band Clinic at Troy University. Letter have been sent home with further information. Please refer to Mr. Ventura’s school page if you have not received this information.
