The Piner Band is getting ready for some amazing opportunities this week. Here’s what we have coming up!

8th Grade Meeting

The Sherman HS Band is hosting an informational meeting on Monday, January 25th at 6:30pm in the Sherman HS Auditorium. Parents and students are encouraged to come and get information about the SHS Band program, including marching and concert programs! If you have questions about fees, contests, or trips, this is the place to get the information! Ms. Mitchell and Mr. Edmonson will be on hand as well to answer any questions.

Clarinet Clinic

On Wednesday, January 27th, at 3:15pm, Dr. Michael Scheuerman from Southeastern Oklahoma State University will be joining us at Piner Middle School for a free master class. Students will work on making fundamental sounds, as well as learning some great clarinet-only tricks and tips! The clinic is free, and all clarinetists are encouraged to attend.

Chamber Festival

The Piner Chamber Festival is on Friday, January 29th at Piner Middle School. Students should already know what group they’re with; a full schedule will be released tomorrow. Each group will have a 5 minute time slot to play, and then they’re welcome to leave.

The entry fee for the contest is $7 per person and covers judges fees, the use of the middle school after hours, and medals for our superior groups.

We have some excellent judges from local middle school band programs coming to listen, and we look forward to getting feedback on all of the hard work we’ve been making.
