VBODA Concert Band Assessments are coming to South Lakes in March!!!
We hosted concert band assessments three years ago, so we know that it takes ALL HANDS to pull it off. This is a large, 2-day event for which we host over 20 bands from around Northern Virginia. Mr. Fore does a ton of work for this, but we need to help so he can dedicate his efforts to preparing the kids for the assessment and keep our streak of superior ratings going!
We will need everybody – students and parents – to volunteer their time for the event on March 18th & 19th. This is a great time for the entire band program to work together. If your student is in Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, or Percussion Ensemble, we need your help. If your student is in Color Guard or Winter Guard, then we would certainly appreciate your help as well. A sign-up genius will be shared in a few weeks.
Before we finalize the plans for all the volunteers, we need a handful of parents to take on several leadership positions. Dividing the work effectively will help us prepare for the event efficiently, and will spread the knowledge so we can host again in years to come.
We are in need of leaders for the following positions:
· Concessions (2)
· Stage Management (1)
· Visitor Management (1)
· Band Management (2)
· Volunteer Management (1)
· Judges Hospitality (1)
Due to the fantastic and meticulous preparation of the folks in 2019, we have a manual that details everything we need to prepare for the event. If you are worried about taking on a role, don’t be—the responsibilities for each position are clearly documented. It’s like paint by numbers. Really!
We’d like to schedule a meeting ASAP for the planning committee.
To volunteer, contact Marci Mouritzen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
