Winter Park High School Band Alumni Association, Inc. "WPHSBAA"
Dear Band Alumni,
We are nearing the annual gathering for homecoming, scheduled for Friday, October 5th. Here is what you need to know:
1. We'll start gathering at Brookshire at 6:00 PM so that we're ready to walk in with the band as usual and to allow time to purchase Band Alumni Reunion T-Shirts (now just $5 each, or free with a $25 or more donation to the WPHSBAA...first come first serve). Walking with the band is your only way in for free and the Band Alumni Reunion T-Shirt is a must if you're performing on the field for pre-game. Small bills are appreciated, and checks are also accepted, made out to WPHSBAA.
2. Pre-game line up will be at approximately 6:45-6:50 PM, and Band Alumni with instruments as well as Guard Alumni will line up on the home sidelines to wait for the band to march on the field. Once they are set, we will run to merge in the lines of our sections and play the Star Spangled Banner and Fight Song. You must be in the stands by 6:40 so we can walk down together. If you can't come early, please join us in the stands when you can make it. The game starts at 7:00!
3. All music is available on-line for you to print and bring into the game. We will not be supplying music, so click on "stands music downloads" at the top pf this page and print.
4. If you have not yet donated to the WPHSBAA to help the Band with travel expenses to Los Angeles for performances at the Walt Disney Concert Hall and Disneyland, please contribute. Any amount will help! We will be presenting the band the first check from 2018 donations received prior to the Winter band concert at 7:00 PM. If you donate later or for a last minute tax deduction, don't worry...we'll present another check in February or March if possible.
5. If you need an instrument (Sousaphone, baritone, snare, bass drum, quads, cymbals, etc.) please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll see what we can do. If you know someone who may let you borrow one, try that first. There are limited instruments and percussion equipment available, but bring your sticks and music, and let us know that you are coming and what you would like to play. We'll do what we can.
Thanks for your interest and support! Hope to see you soon, and keep watching FB posts to stay up to date with the latest.
