Congrats All County Participants!

Congratulations to the following on an outstanding performance experience in this weekend’s All County Band!

  • 9/10 Band
    • Jessica Mazarro, Daniel Harshman, Matt Murphy, & Luis Tomar
  • 11/12 Band
    • Victoria Vanness, Brannon Talley, & Justin Talley

The performances were an incredible culmination of the process that it takes to make it into this elite group. From the auditions in November to the rehearsals and performance in January, this process is an unbelievable experience for all of our OCPS students as they get to make music in ensembles that range from 90 – 100 performers, playing literature that is at a high level and yet they achieve their success in just 12 hours of full group rehearsal. Our members that represented APK are to be commended on a job well done this weekend. IEGYB!

Solo & Ensemble Is Almost Here! 

We are two weeks away from hosting our annual FBA District 8 S&E event at Apopka High School! In addition to the many wonderful performances that our students will take part in, our members and our Parent/Boosters will also be part of the machine that prepares, serves, and secures our campus upon completion of the event. Service is a huge part of our program and we have a fantastic opportunity to serve our Orange County peers in the coming weeks!

We will have a Student Leadership meeting on WEDNESDAY, January 31st from 1:20 PM – 1:50 PM to go over our plan of action and lay out the sign ups for the weekend’s event.

S&E Performance schedules will be posted this week. At this point, only our jazz ensemble schedule has been released and is as follows:

  • Jazz Ensemble 2 will perform at 9:30 AM on Thursday, February 8th
  • Jazz Ensemble 1 will perform at 10 AM on Thursday, February 8th

The Woodwind/Brass portion of our S&E schedule will be released later this week.
