A Message from Mr.Morris
 Just wanted to let everyone know what we've been up to:
Our Holiday Concert is Sunday, December 10 at 5:00 in the HS Gym. Note that the start time has changed. Due to the later start, won't run quite as long as in the past. I'm planning to be done and on the way home by 7:00!

Shelly Schlabach, Andrew West, Olivia Young, Daniel Beichler, Paul Hansel, and Meghan Kieffer participated in Muskingum University's YouthFest a couple weeks ago. Students were selected by director nomination and placed into three bands. The bands were directed by David Turrill, director of bands at Muskingum University, Wendy Matthews, professor of music education at Wayne State University, and Cheryl Graham, former band director at New Philadelphia.
They rehearsed all day Saturday and Sunday, then played a Sunday afternoon concert. 

Shelly Schlabach also auditioned and was accepted into the Ohio University Honor Band Festival. The festival runs December 7-9. She will have the opportunity to work with members of the OU music faculty and perform a concert on December 9. OU streams some of their band concerts on YouTube, so I'll send out the link if I find out they are streaming this one.

Looking ahead, a number of our students are preparing to participate in Solo and Ensemble Contest on January 20 at Glenoak High School. Students can perform solo or with a small group and receive a rating and comments from a judge.

Thanks for all you do to support our students and make music possible at Garaway!
