The ZHS Bulldog Band will be holding a special fundraiser at the Zephyrhills Cinema 10 on Saturday, August 8th at 10:00 am. For $10.00, you’ll get to watch the newly released Fantastic Four and a small popcorn/soda. We encourage students to bring their families and join us for a wonderful morning.
“Band Camp is not required but it is strongly encouraged.”
I hate to make that statement. But contrary to what other band directors may be telling their students, this is the truth. I understand that students may not be able to attend due to family obligations. With that being said however, Band Camp will still go on.
Last year we marched roughly 83 students. Right this moment our numbers are holding at… 122 students ! That’s an increase of roughly 50%. That increase applies to our concert and jazz programs as well causing us to create for the first time two complete concert bands and two complete jazz bands. That means competition will be high for those students wanting to be in the top groups.
Those students missing Camp will not be penalized but the downside is that students cannot perform with the band until they’re able to learn the material missed. For some students that may be a few weeks, for others it could be longer. It depends on how quickly they’re willing to work hard and makeup that time missed.
Let me know if I can be of any help. Otherwise, I look forward to seeing hopefully close to 122 students at Band Camp.
