  8. Director’s Comments
    1. Mitchell – Excited about the opportunity for the kids to be in front of the state concert band and Jazz band. District music contest is April 23rd. Have 26 entries and an additional 6 that will get to perform. It is open to the public. Schedule should come out next week.
    2. LeFeber – Thankful to have such supporting parents.  Hosting 2 events in Kearney helps show off our facility.  NSBA Marching Band had another school put into host for 2022.  But Kearney was still selected for the host site.  State Concert Band is not a competitive event. The State Jazz Band event is a competition. Announced that the students will do a Professional recording while in Nashville of the National Anthem & School Song that can be played when the Band is not available.
