Hello, my name is Whitney Olsen and I work at Utah Valley University. I wanted to let you know about a special event we have coming up for all high school students interested in music.
Every year my office organizes several UV You Days which are open to all students, parents, faculty, and counselors. During this event students receive essential information about their college major, and meet their future dean, professors, and advisors. UV You Days are free Saturday events and students will receive breakfast and lunch. The Music and Dance UV You Day will be held on Saturday, January 21st, 2011. I encourage you to invite your students to attend this event.
Along with other prizes, a $200 bookstore scholarship will be given away at every event! Also, if your student wears their FREE UVU t-shirt they can enter to win an ipad! To order their t-shirt and have it mailed to them before the event direct your students to www.uvu.edu/futurestudents There they will find a scrolling advertisement for this t-shirt.
To register for this event your student can visit www.uvu.edu/futurestudents.events
I appreciate your help. Please let me know if you have any questions.

I am trying to put together a slide show for the banquet next week. I need marching band pictures form this year. If you have any please get them to me by Friday.
I was reading on a group I belong too and I found two options I have never heard of before. I know nothing about either one, but I thought I would share these as options for you.
The first option is this site: http://Braceguard.com/
Most of them agree that this is the better option though: https://www.morganbumper.com/
If you try one out and like it leave a comment.
So the 2011 season is over. I for one will miss working on the Lost show, but look forward to new ideas. We have announced the new drum majors for next year and are excited to work with Ryan and Jake in those roles.
Now we need to work on concert band for a while and focus on making our fundamental musical skills stronger. Hope you are all ready to make some great music.
The new web site is taking shape and we are now on board with the new iSchoolmusic.org web site. If you want to sign up get a code from me. Let me know what you think of the new site, what you want to see, and what you think we don’t need.
