37th Annual Ada Music Feast!

 

Proud of Ada H.S. Marching Band for 3rd Place (out of 7) in Class C today (Oct 18) at Findlay competition. Our color guard/auxiliary received 2nd in class. Maybe not exactly what we'd hoped for, but we were the only band to perform in a cold steady rain, which was pretty miserable. Overall, just a very cold night! A big THANK YOU to everyone who came to help with equipment. It was great to have all of that help!

            HELP NEEDED FOR BOA GRAND NATIONALS COMPETITION

From November 13th through 15th, the Ada HS Marching Band will be making a return trip to the Bands of America Grand Nationals Competition! The competition will be held at Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. The band will leave Ada on Thursday and return late on Saturday. Lucas Oil Stadium is a large venue and some of the parents/helpers we normally have to help with equipment won’t be able to join us. So, we are in need of some volunteers! Not only will you garner the affection of our band members, but you will be treated to some of the best marching band shows! If you are available to help, please contact Mr. Lischak or email admin@adamusicboosters.org.

 

NEW SYSTEM OF BILLING FOR PROGRAM FEES

The Ada Music Boosters are implementing a new process for the billing and collection of program fees for students of the music programs (Including Varsity Singers, marching band, and winter guard fees, plus things like camp fees, spirit packs, spirit wear, travel expenses, ticket pirchases, etc.). This will be an online system that is convenient, fast, simple, and secure. An introductory information letter containing all of the details were included with the Varsity Singers and marching band camp letters that were recently mailed! In the meantime, please make sure our treasurer, Dave Smittle, has your e-mail address by sending yours to him at d-smittle@onu.edu
