Here is the itinerary: UVU Itinerary 2013

If you are in the area we perform at 10:30 am, come see us.

Three Important Items

We have two trips left for this school year.

The JH Band Festival on April 30. The itinerary can be found here: UVU Trip 2012

The Region Concert Band trip to the State Band Festival on May 4. The tentative itinerary can be found here: State Band 2012 -If it changes I will put it here in the same place with a large note.-

The other item that needs to be brought to you attention is the first newsletter for the 2012 Marching Band. I’m sending a paper copy of this home today, but if you want to see it in color (or it doesn’t make it home) here it is: 2012MB_News_Letter_1

You can also see the new MB logo on the news letter. We actually are trying to choose between two and may use both. So here is the other one:

If you have any questions, as always feel free to e-mail me. The JH festival is at UVU the State Band Festival is at Jordan High School in SLC.

UV You days for music

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.
