This week is UIL week for non-varsity bands in Region 26. Alex and Jenna have 2 and 3 rehearsals left respectively before performing, and deciding how to best use that time is sometimes not the easiest decision.
Both are pushing tempo, tempo, tempo with a side of sightreading. Jenna’s band in particular is very young, so “playing the game” is still a new concept.
Darcy’s band doesn’t going to UIL until April 1st, so her band is at a very different point in preparation. In these last few rehearsals before spring break the goal is cleaning… tedious, time consuming, and necessary.
