State Solo and Ensemble

How awesome is it that we have such great young adults representing us this weekend at State Solo and Ensemble?

Michael Rusk, Stephanie Warthan, Josh Griimes, Kerrick Wolf , Chase Souder, Kalen Richmond, Benjamin Bledsoe and Spencer Bohlen

Will travel to North Central High School this Saturday to perform their solo and or ensemble to be judged in the ISSMA State Finals.  Proud can not come close to describing how I feel about these young peoples work and determination.  Our Soloist will be accompanied by Mrs. Janine Leaneagh and  Mrs. Beth Sewell and both of these woman have had an amazing hand in our young performers success!  Our "E" family is very lucky to have them and very lucky to have such hard working and talented young people to display their musical talent.  North Central  is on the North side of Indianapolis on 86th street.  I will be there throughout the day to watch our young musicians perform and hope you will be able to as well!  Below is the short list of where our musicians will play and at what time if you don't want to sift through the 72 pages of state entries...

Solo and Ensemble

Solo and Ensemble is this Saturday at Bloomington North High School.  In the forms section you will find a excel sheet with our individual times and room to warm up and perform and a PDF from Bloomington North with a school map and all details of Saturday's activities.  I would suggest getting to Bloomington North 45 minutes before listed performance time to give plenty of time to park, find their rooms and warm up.  If there are any questions or problems I will be there the full day and you can contact me via cell phone!  GOOD LUCK to all performers and "May the odds be in your favor!"

State Finals Week!

There is a LOT of information for this week starting with Thursday and going through Saturday.

Thursday is now the public preview if you have not caught wind of this yet.  Dana has offered to drive a bus again from EHS to take any members that need a ride to IU, the bus will leave at 4:15pm but will not bring members back this time, transportation home will need to be arranged...The preview will be at 8:40 and we will load after.  There will be time to take section or individual pictures after the performance.

Friday we will perform for the student body at EHS.  We will dress in our new uni's and take pictures at 2:45.  Seth Baugh will be here take group and section pictures.  I know this is not the most ideal time for parents to get pictures, but, there will be time Thursday after the public preview that individual pics can be taken.  We will practice Friday after pictures from 4-7 and at 7 will have pizza and trunk or treat put on by the Boosters!

Saturday will be a early morning and the whole day is layed out in the itinerary along with many other items that are in the ISSMA packet for the day.  Please go through this.  This should be a great day for us and a day we need to celebrate all the work the kids have put into this show!  There will be more information throughout the week about these upcoming events so please be on the lookout!

ISSMA Regionals at Evansville Central!

This Saturday we will have our first ISSMA contest where we need to be in the top 10 to advance. This year Regionals are at Evansville Central High School.  It is long drive, and we will stop somewhere on the way to let the kids out for restroom and stretch!  Also, lunch will be served by the amazing boosters and we will have rehearsal at school before we leave for Evansville.  There is a Momma Wells' Timekeeper that you can download and copy.  Please be aware that Evansville is an hour behind us and I have placed both Evansville and Ellettsville time on the time keeper.  I hope you are as proud of our Marching Mustangs as I am.  They have made amazing improvement in the past week and I know there is much much more for them and this show ahead of them!
