Volunteer for our MidStates contest!

Hello Eagle Regiment!

We are in DIRE need of volunteers to help us at our 10/26 contest!  Without people to help us move props and pit, we will not be able to set-up and perform in our given interval time.  Please consider riding over with us, spending the day with our fantastic members, and helping us to perform at our very best come Saturday the 26th! 

Without your help, we cannot complete this endeavor.  Please contact Mr. Miller at bryce.miller@kenton.kyschools.us if you have any questions or concerns.

You can sign up to help us by clicking here!

Honor Bands Season

Honor Band Season is upon us!  We treat honor bands as our addressing of our part of being ready for college...as musicians.  This schedule is made in order to maximize your ability to get in with many of the prominent music faculties/facilities in the state while learning from some of the best guest conductors available.  These are fantastic opportunities to play alongside the state's most talented musicians while being conducted by some of the nation's premiere conductors!  Opportunities like these look great on scholarships and point solidly at leadership.  Some sign up details will be added to this post in the coming days, as they are made available by the respective university.  EHO's to get you excused from school for these events can be printed out here eventually (uploading updated EHO form).

Game Reschedule 9/30

Our evening rehearsal on the football field has been cancelled tonight due to a necessary game reschedule.  We have been offered the same time spot (6-9) on Friday and will discuss that possibility in band class.  We do not expect people to drop everything to make this happen and will take schedules heavily into account when looking at Friday...you respect our time and we also respect yours.

Look for news on this by late this afternoon.


SmartMusic

We have launched a new platform for our music program called SmartMusic.  This is a web-based program that works with Chromebook, iPads, or anything else that can run a Chrome browser.  This unique platform allows students to practice in so many different ways and to receive immediate feedback on that practice.  Check out these (somewhat dated) videos to get an idea of what this can do:

As we begin to have classroom students sign up for this platform, we're also asking that any non-campus students use it to complete the assignments on each piece we're playing in class in order to participate with the ensemble at concerts.

To sign-up and join our class, click this link and use classroom code LNYRJ-VDKJU when prompted!
                             

Online Store

We are running a temporary online storefront through our partner Idlebrook to offer Eagle Regiment wear to any who would like to support our group!  You can find the store front right here.

This storefront takes out double-winged logo and incorporates the print element from our new uniforms.  They're offering both may varying types of t-shirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies.  The store is only live until midnight on 9/29, so check it out when you can!
