The Timberview Band will put on their first performance for 2015 this week and the Wolf Band Percussion Ensemble will continue to prepare for its upcoming concert in March. The THS Winterguard had its second competition this past weekend at DeSoto and continues to rehearse diligently. Please check out the THS Band calendar for all upcoming activities at www.timberviewband.com
Tuesday, February 10th is the Timberview Mid-Winter Concert with all three concert bands performing at Willie Pigg Auditorium on the campus of Brooks Wester Middle School, 1520 North Walnut Creek Drive (Debbie Lane & Walnut Creek Drive) in Mansfield. The concert starts at 7 p.m. and will conclude by 8 p.m.
All band students must bring home their formal wear and tuxes from school to change at home and arrive at Willie Pigg according to our concert evening schedule. All band students are responsible to have transportation to or make arrangements to and from the concert venue and should arrive in time to help set-up the stage and to also stay a few minutes to help strike the stage and load the truck after the concert is concluded.
The THS Wind Symphony will be recording an audition CD for the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Convention in Chicago and taking a photo while at the hall, so we will have a slightly different schedule than our usual concerts.
