The Jazz and Percussion Concert that was cancelled last Thursday due to weather has been rescheduled to Tuesday, February 25th at 7:30pm in the PAC at EPHS. Come support our Jazz Bands and Percussion Ensembles in what promises to be a great concert!
Once again, the Eden Prairie High School Band has been selected for Ruby Tuesday’s Give Back program. During the first weekend of each month, Ruby Tuesday in Eden Prairie will be contributing 20% of the value of food and beverage purchases back to the Band Program. The 20% applies to the entire menu (although it cannot be used with coupons). They prefer it if you present the flyer, but you can still get credit for the band if you mention the Give Back program to your server. This is a great way to enjoy a nice evening out with great food and support our band at the same time. Eating for a cause has never been easier!
The first weekend is February 7th – 9th, valid all day. See you there!
Find the flyer HERE. (This is last fall’s flyer, but it will still be accepted until the new one is ready.)
January 28, 2014. The wind chill advisory will be ending Tuesday afternoon, so why not head over to EPHS and see the Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble perform in the PAC at 7:00pm? Also, WE parents – there is an important meeting for YOU in the choir room at 6:15. Please be there if you can. Performers report in concert attire at 6:00pm.
Your EPHS band student should have brought home a letter addressed to his or her parent from the BPO related to year end giving. If your did not deliver it to you, you can find it by clicking HERE.
The BPO Board would like to thank all of the parents who put in so many hours during 2013 to help support the band program at Eden Prairie High School. We truly would not have the fantastic program that we do without all your help.
If you haven’t gotten involved yet with the BPO, consider making a New Year’s Resolution to attend a meeting and see what we’re all about. The next meeting is Monday, January 13th at 6:00pm.
