Broadcast Networking Opportunity-Any recordings from live band performances is breaking copyright laws. There is an opportunity that will allow us to have a 3rd party work out the copyright for the music we will be paying. There is no cost to the Band and we could make $ with profit sharing depending upon the number of subscriptions that parents buy. Parents can buy a yearly subscription for around $40 a year. There is an option for discounts for free and reduced lunch families. It was mentioned that the cost would be hard for some for grandparents or some families.
Upcoming Concerts-12/17 Holiday Concert coming soon, please join us online to watch.
Mr.Mitchell- There will not be an underclassmen honor guard this year, with everything going on with Covid. Thanks for your understanding with the changes being made with the concert attendance. With social distancing we can only allow a few in the audience, so students from band & orchestra will be our supportive audience and all parents and family members can watch live online.
Lefeber- Our band concert went amazing, good job everyone. Online concert went well and the band did fantastic, the Kearney High Band did the best out of all that was submitted. Thanks to all students and parents for all that you did to make this a great marching band season especially with all the challenges.
