Jazz Concert

Parents and students should be aware that all band students are expected to attend the upcoming Jazz Concert next Wednesday, October 29 at 7:30 p.m. in the theater. The Honors Jazz Band has been working very hard in preparation for what should be a great concert. Joining the HJB will be special guest band M13 which features 13 of the finest musicians in Chicago. Led by our saxophone teacher Aaron McEvers and including our trumpet teacher Scott Anderson, you'll not want to miss this concert. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased through Mr. Carroll, Mr. Neurauter in the business office, or online at https://www.stpatrick.org/theatre/. Check out M13 here: http://www.aaronmcevers.com/. See you all next Wednesday!

Black Friday

Homecoming will be a BLACK OUT! Students performing at the Homecoming football game should be advised that we are wearing BLACK! This is a change from the other day's blog entry. All Saint Patrick students have been requested by the school to wear black shirts/sweatshirts/coats for the big game. So naturally, the band will follow suit. Students are still expected to wear green/gold during the school day.
