The Old BolivarMusic Site

The old bolivarmusic site (this page) is closed and will not be updated.  In the future, please use bolivarmusic.org to visit the new site.  If you are receiving an email with this post, it will be the last from this site you will receive.  From this point, we will be relying on the school information system (SIS) for email announcements.

Homecoming Information

See the attached picture for the parade routine.  Remember, three times to the LIBERATOR thing.  Percussion will not do this.  We need you to focus on playing and being our anchor. 
-Thursday Rehearsal

Load trailer, but keep horns in cabinet.  If you have been approved to miss the parade, please load your instrument Thursday.  Everyone else must keep them in the cabinet until Friday. 

-Friday - You must have band shirt!!!!

BEFORE ASSEMBLY:
You will be dismissed for the assembly with a Remind.com Text.  Go to the band room and get your instrument and flipfolder out.  Load the case on trailer.  Load book bags in truck.  It might rain.  If so, we want to avoid the outside for book bags.  If it rains, I will have the van handy or some other way to transport your stuff. 

Go to Gym up stairs. 

Play in assembly. 

Star Spangled Banner handy!

Guitar and Bass bring up amps, then leave them after we are finished.

AFTER ASSEMBLY

Head out to BIS road.  Lineup.  Play I Am Doctor for little kids in place.  Bass cart brought out by three pushers.  Parade Banner brought out.  The trailers will be with us in the parade if you need access. 

AFTER PARADE

We end and reload trailer at First Baptist around 3:00pm.  Have a ride or grab a ride back with a float.  Coordinate with parents.  Call Grandma.  No hitchhiking with strangers.  Beware of stranger danger.  Look both ways crossing the road.  Chew your food thoroughly before swallowing.  Drink plenty of water.  Follow your heart, but take your brain with you.  Raise your words, not your voice. 

UHAUL TRUCK

The UHaul will hold uniforms, hats speaker carts.  We load them Friday morning, not Thursday.  Hats will be given out and numbered / named at SBU, as well as black gloves.  If you have not yet loaded your shoes (freshman only), I have done it for you.  You're welcome.
