THS Band Activities For Week of October 21, 2013

The Timberview Wolf Band has a very busy week ahead with our final stadium practice of the season, UIL Region 5 Marching Band contest on Tuesday, an away football game against district foe Cedar Hill on Friday and then our final Marching Band Contest of the season at the Duncanville Marching Contest.

Remember, if you took any photo’s of the band performance at the Homecoming game, or any general pictures of the Wolf band members and activities, please submit them to: for consideration to be posted on the website home page. Digital format jpeg, gif or pdf format only and all should be in high-resolution settings.

Rehearsal schedule: We have our final stadium practice on Monday, October 21 at Newsom Stadium from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. This replaces our normal 4 p.m. rehearsal for Monday only. Parents, you will need to drop your student off or make transportation arrangements to have you student to Newsom Stadium early so they can be on the field and ready to start right at 5:00 p.m. This is a final tune-up before UIL and the Duncanville contest. Families are welcome to attend for the last 15 minutes or so, to see a full run of the show.  We will end right at 7 p.m., so please pick up your students on time. We had some stragglers last time and we do not want to be at the stadium late the night before our UIL contest!   Regular band rehearsals for the remainder of the week on Tuesday and Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m. and on Wednesday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Tuesday, October 22nd, is the UIL Region 5 Marching Band Contest at HEB Pennington Field, 1501 Central Drive in Bedford, TX. Band and Colorguard students will have early release from classes at 1:45 p.m. The Wolf Band will compete against Arlington, Birdville, L.D. Bell, James Bowie, Haltom, Lamar, Lake Ridge, Legacy, Mansfield, James Martin, Richland, Sam Houston, Juan Seguin, Summit, Timberview & Trinity High Schools in the region. Timberview’s performance time is at 7:15 p.m. We will remain to watch the remainder of the competition and for the UIL Awards and rankings ceremonies at 9:30 p.m. We hope to be back at THS around 10:30 p.m. for student pick-up. We will post a detailed agenda for this event on Monday.

Friday, October 25th, is another key District 7-5A  football game against one of last years state finalist Cedar Hill Longhorns at CISD Longhorn Stadium, 1 Longhorn Drive in Cedar Hill for a 7:30 p.m. contest. Timberview is tied with Cedar Hill and Mansfield High for second place in district (3-1) as the Wolves seek to improve on their 6-1 start and position themselves for the UIL playoffs. Game day details and agenda will be posted on Thursday.

Saturday, October 26th, is our final Marching Band Contest of the season as we compete in the Duncanville Invitational Marching Band Contest. Since 5A schools do not compete for the UIL State Championships this year, this will be our opportunity to compete with many of the top bands in the area and state that will perform. We really want to finish the marching contest with a strong showing at Duncanville to finish off the marching contest season. The Duncanville contest is a prelims/finals format where respected adjudicators in music education will judge each band in music, marching, general effect, as well as caption awards for Percussion and Color Guard. Bands are grouped according to school size and awards are given for Outstanding Marching; Outstanding Music; Outstanding General Effect; Outstanding Color Guard; Outstanding Percussion and a top Finalist Places, 1-10. Timberview is scheduled to perform at 11:45 a.m.

The contest schedule and agenda for the day will be sent out later this week from the THS Band website. The Duncanville Panther Stadium is in close proximity to Timberview at 900 East Camp Wisdom Road in Duncanville, so we want to encourage you to attend and support the Wolf Band and everyone’s hard work all year long in this final contest. With admissions to the marching contest you will receive a wrist band entrance ticket that will allow you to come and go and come back during the day and to be there for the specific Timberview performances and awards ceremonies.
