KMEA ASSESSMENTS

Assessment events will be virtual this year; solo and ensemble festival and concert assessments at the district level will be video/audio recorded and submitted for evaluation to KMEA.  Instructions have been posted to GOOGLE Classroom concerning the online entry process through Collabra (much like the All State audition process).  All OCHS students are required to perform ONE EVENT for the Solo/Ensemble assessment but can enter more than one event if they wish (I would recommend no more than three total events).

Mr. Rogers has been working to produce a virtual KMEA assessment recording for our two concert bands, using the large meeting rooms at the Arvin Center to facilitate whatever social distancing requirements we may be dealing with as we go forward.
 
After discussing with Arvin staff, the following dates are available:
 
Dress rehearsals:

Rehearsals previously scheduled for 4/21 and 4/22 at the Arvin Centered have been changed back to regular after school rehearsals.  Band Photos will be taken on 4/22 after school.  Additional Information will be given in the coming weeks.
 
Performance recording sessions:
 
Symphonic II: THURSDAY, April 29th from 4:00-7:00 p.m. (includes dressing in concert black, set up, recording session and photo (?))
Symphonic I: FRIDAY, April 30th from 4:00-7:00 p.m. (same as above; return equipment to band room afterward).
 
Students on sports teams or who have after school employment obligations have more than one month to get these dates cleared and should do so immediately to ensure they will be rehearsing and performing with the band on these dates.  
 
The broad time frame is to ensure we have enough time deal with the fact that we won’t be "just down the hallway" to perform, must dress in concert attire after school on our "performance" days, and any other logistical issues.  If we finish early, that means our planning was solid and we were efficient in our use of the time we had.
 
This will be a big step in the direction we need to be going and will provide the opportunity of a traditional outcome for our work during this crazy time.  The recordings produced will be posted on YouTube for parents/relatives/supporters to view.

 

PHOTOS AND VIDEOS NEEDED

As you know, each spring our Photo Coordinator creates the End-of-Year Band Video for our graduating seniors and the rest of the band members. This year has been especially challenging with getting pictures of our band members. With few public appearances to pull from, it’s important that we capture as many photos and videos as we can of our band members. We are asking you for help in doing this.
 
Please do the following by no later than April 30, 2021:
 
1. Find any band pictures or videos taken this year already, preferably in a .jpg (photo) and .mp4 (video) format.
 
2. Take pictures of your band student practicing at home or putting on a family performance.
 
3. Create a folder on your desktop and save all of your photos and videos in the folder. 
 
4. Rename the folder in the following format using your band student’s name: 
last name_first name (Example: Fuller_Katie)
 
5. To upload your folder to the right location, do the following:

  • Click on this link: Photo Upload
  • Drag and drop the folder you created into the Google folder that opens up and says, "Drop files here"

If you have any questions, please send one email to the following two email addresses:

photo@ochs.band; websupport@ochs.band

We will meet with Symphonic Band I (6th period class) on Wednesday evening,  from 6:00-7:30 p.m. Jazz Band will meet after rehearsal 7:45-8:30.

9th grade percussionists should attend on Tuesday; all upperclassmen Percussionists should attend on Wednesday.  Tuba and Euphonium players will receive special instructions from Mr. Schmidt to enable you to work on both your KMEA conference music and rehearse with the bands.

We will keep this schedule for the foreseeable future; until we are back in person every day (not A/B), that is the only way to facilitate transportation for everyone.

After Spring Break rehearsals will resume immediately after school on Tuesdays for Symphonic II and Wednesdays for Symphonic I from 3:45-5:00.  

Parents and spectators will not be allowed to attend the rehearsals due to the restrictions.
If parents or their student are uncomfortable with this arrangement, they should let me know they will not attend. Please email with concerns Bradford.rogers@oldham.kyschools.us
