Jazz Band

Unfortunately, Ms. Kluga was unable to schedule a rehearsal for this week.  Regular Thursday rehearsals will begin on 10/5 from 7:30-9pm in the band room.  Please arrive promptly at 7:20 to set up and warm up.

Seating Auditions

Seating auditions will take place next week at your student’s band lesson.  It is imperative that students understand that WE ARE A MUSICAL TEAM and ALL PARTS ARE IMPORTANT!  Just as any sports team needs to have balanced playing positions on the field or court, our band will perform and sound best when we have strong players on every part.  If you have questions, please see the attached letter regarding this process.

Tag Sale

One of our first fundraisers of the year is the annual Music Boosters Tag Sale.  This is a reminder to please save your stuff to donate!!  The sale will take place in the YHS Cafeteria on Saturday 10/14 from 9am-2pm.  We will be accepting donations on Friday 10/13 from 3-7pm.  Tell your friends and neighbors!  Many parent and student volunteers will be needed to make this event a success.


A flyer is attached FYI.  Feel free to share with family/friends or post on work or community bulletin boards.  Parent volunteers will be needed.  Please refer to the e-mail from parent-organizer Theresa Ryan-Onatzevitch ([email protected]) to find out how you can help.

Support The YCSD Arts! Become A First Nighter!!

The First Nighters is a parent group whose mission is to support the YCSD Performing Arts programs.  Each year they invite parents to help their cause!   Some of their initiatives include:

  • Advocating for and supporting the arts programs in all schools.
  • Purchasing supplies for the arts programs in all schools.
  • Providing yearly scholarships to outstanding seniors.
  • Honoring Performing Arts juniors and seniors at an annual recognition dinner.

The First Nighters annual information letter is attached.  Please consider volunteering your time and talents, and/or becoming a sponsor.  Akin to the Husker’s invaluable support of Athletics, the First Nighters are a vital part of keeping the Performing Arts alive in YCSD!
