We have officially made it to the post season. Thank you for everyone's help in making the 2019 competitive season a great success! The band achieved so much and I felt encouraged by their always positive attitude to work hard and grow.
Post Season Marching Band Expectations
Post season football is slightly different in that we will not perform our elaborate halftime show. We are still the marching Tigers and will be performing our much anticipated Script Tigers once the play (McBeth) has finished its run. This requires near perfect attendance and the support of parents and family to help get the students to the school on Fridays.
We are currently trying to wrap up auditions for the band and will begin rehearsing concert band music for our holiday concert next month. In other words, we will be supporting the Tiger football team until the state championship game if necessary, but we will not be preparing other elaborate halftime shows for these games. Our focus is on the normal progression that is best for the Pickerington Central Band program.
Post Season Uniform
The post season uniform is always going to be purple pants and black socks. I will modify the uniform dress code to include neutral beanie hats. They can be white, black, purple. Please no logos of any kind unless they are for PHSC. Additionally, kids can wear a warm glove under their white band gloves. I highly encourage everyone to purchase or wear a thermal layer. The trick to staying warm is layering under the uniform.
