Concert Band Spring 2021
With a semester of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic realties, I believe we’ve learned a great deal. Most importantly to note is that the virus is not being spread or contracted in rehearsals. When that happens, it’s typically outside of the normal academic activities on campus. That’s a good thing and should reassure everyone that we are doing everything we can to stop the spread. That being said, you will need to have a mask designed to wear during rehearsals when you’re playing your instrument. If you’re a wind player, you will also need a bell cover for your particular instrument. There are a multitude of online retailers where these are available. I have included a couple links to ones I would recommend. Please purchase both the mask and bell cover in black for uniformity among the Band and have them by the first rehearsal. Here are the links:
