  • Students and Parents,

    Another busy week in the Shadow Creek Band!



    After months and months of preparation and auditions, Shadow Creek Band members Ali Rehman (Percussion) and James Laase (English Horn) were named to the TMEA All-State Band this weekend!  Earning a place in an All-State group is the highest honor a school musician can achieve, and we couldn't be prouder of their accomplishment!  Congratulations to all of our students who auditioned this weekend, and to all of our students who participated in the All-State process by learning their region music and trying out in auditions throughout November, December, and January.



    We need parents representing all of our band students at our parent meeting this Tuesday!  We have a lot to talk about, including:

    Spring Semester Events

    2020/21 Trip to Orlando

    Spring Booster Needs

    Upcoming Mattress Fundraiser

    Come out on Tuesday the 14th, and help us start off 2020 right!



    Alvin ISD and Shadow Creek High School will be celebrating the 2019 State Champion Shadow Creek HS Football team on Wednesday, January 22nd at 7pm, and the SC Band will be there as a part of the celebration.  The band will be in uniform, on the field, at Freedom Field performing the National Anthem and the Fight Song.  Because this is an evening performing in marching uniforms, we will essentially be running a football game schedule.  There are not many details yet for this event, but a basic outline of the evening looks like this:

    3:00-4:30pm  Rehearsal

    4:30-5:30pm  Eat and Change

    5:45pm          Depart for Freedom Field

    6:30pm          On the Field

    7:00pm          Celebration

    7:45pm          Load Buses and Trucks

    8:15pm          Back at SCHS

    8:45pm          Go Home



    There are a couple of different dates for Solo and Ensemble this year:

    Saturday, February 22nd - Percussion Ensemble Festival

    Friday, February 28th - Wind Symphony and Symphonic Band Ensembles

    Saturday, February 29th - Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band, and Concert Band Solo Contest

    Thursday, March 5th - Percussion Solo Contest

    Wind students performing a solo with a pianist, should expect to pay their accompanist between $45 and $50, depending on the difficulty of the part.  This expense covers the accompanist's practice time, two rehearsals with the student, and the performance.  Every wind and percussion student performing in a solo or ensemble event must pay a $10 fee per event to cover contest costs.  For example, a student only performing a solo, but no ensemble, would pay $10, but a student performing a solo AND an ensemble would pay $20.  Again, this applies to all wind AND percussion students involved in the contests.



    Private lessons are for any student who wants to achieve at a higher level than where they are now.  Whether you're an experienced All-State Band member or a younger player just trying to figure things out, you need lessons to get the most out of your band experience!  If you're interested in private lessons, fill out this form or contact Mr. Mooney at jmooney@alvinisd.net


    As always, please let us know if you have any questions.


    Thank you,

    Josh Mooney
