Meigs Band 2018-2019 Fall Calendar

Private Lessons Student Permission Form

On Saturday 28 April 2018, the Meigs Academic Magnet Wind Ensemble performed at the Grand National Adjudicators Invitational concert performance competition in Chattanooga, TN. Over 1,000 Jr. and Sr. high school band students representing programs from as far away as Massachusetts performed for a panel of world-renowned adjudicators. The students received personal feedback from both Colonel Tom Rotondi and Colonel Bryan Shelburne, both recently retired commanders of “Pershing’s Own” United States Army Band, Washington D.C.

The Meigs Wind Ensemble performed for an audience numbering in the hundreds, and was awarded Judge’s Distinction Awards for High Overall Brass and High Overall Percussion. A Judge’s Distinction Award was also presented to 7TH Grade student Hannah Chen (Flute) for Outstanding Soloist. The Meigs Wind Ensemble was named as the Grand National Adjudicators Invitational Jr. High Honor Band, making the ensemble a two-time recipient of this honor.

In addition, the Meigs Concert Band also performed and was well received by both audience and adjudicators. The Concert Band was the only ensemble to perform with first-year members, and also the only ensemble to feature 5TH Grade students on stage. Congratulations to those students as well!

In addition to our year-round Private Lessons staff, the Meigs Band students, and especially Mr. Norris, want to specifically thank the following individuals for all of their support and work in teaching our students: Dr. Rich Ripani, Mrs. Marsha Hartwein, Mr. Jeff Beckman, Mr. Paul Waters, Dr. Barry Krauss), and Dr. Gary Schallert.
