Basketball Pep Band Finishes the 2022 Season
February 3rd will mark the end of the regular season for the Varsity Boys and Girls home league games at which the basketball pep band plays. The band will also play at any home playoff games for the varsity basketball teams, and possibly travel if either team makes it to the championship game, depending on COVID rules.
Festival, Winter Guard, and Percussion Seasons Begin
In February, the different parts of the Irish Knight Band split off to start working on their individual Spring Semester activities. The Concert Band and Wind Ensemble will begin working on their Concert and Festival music, the Dance Guard will start working on their Winter Guard show, and the Percussion Ensemble kicks things up another gear as they get into their Indoor Concert Percussion show. Festivals, Concerts, and Dance Guard and Percussion Ensemble competitions will begin in March. Check the IKB Google Calendar for performance dates.
Saturday Elementary Band - Final Month for Accepting New Students
The Saturday Elementary Band Program will continue for the Spring 2022 semester. If you already play a band instrument and you missed the Fall semester, February is the last month to join the Squires Band for the Spring semester. If you don’t play an instrument yet, it’s unfortunately too late to join the Beginning Band class. Please look ahead to September 2022 when we start the next year of Beginning Band. All Saturday band classes will be held outdoors on the tennis courts. All rehearsals will adhere to COVID guidelines, including temperature checks, physical distancing, and wearing masks while not playing.
Alumni Band Update
All Alumni Band activities are still suspended at this time. Please keep checking your emails for periodic updates as things progress. We look forward to having our alumni band members back on campus as soon as we are permitted to do so. Any IKB alumni interested in the status of the Alumni Band as we move through the spring may contact Alumni Band Director, John Combes, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
