Dear Students and Parents
Thank you very much for being a part of the WMS Bands. We had a wonderful trip to the San Francisco Symphony's Concerts for Kids yesterday. I've seen them play many times and the quality of the music they produce always amazes me! I'm so glad that your children have had the chance to see them in person.
I'm writing to give you more information about some upcoming activities. You may remember from our newsletter that the G&C Auto Body Grand Opening had been tentatively scheduled for November 13. The event has been rescheduled to December 11. Peter Bizaca, G&C's Director of Public Relations and Sales visited and personally invited the students to come and play. As he explained, G&C Auto Body is opening a new facility in Windsor and they really want to connect with the community. Other invitees include the mayor, town council, and the press. It is an honor to be invited to perform. The event begins at 12:00 noon and lasts until 3:00. Clearly, the students will not be playing for the entire time. Any students who are able to be there will be given a bonus towards their grades; there is no penalty, of course, for those who cannot attend. G&C has also offered to make a very generous donation to our program.
As you know, our Winter Concert is on December 9th at 6:30. Stay tuned for more information. We look forward to performing for you.
