We hope you had a safe and happy holiday season. We are excited to hit the ground running this year with our divisional groups. We are looking forward to the first Youth Music and Creative Arts Rehearsal of the New Year on January 12, 2013 at Camp Hoblitzelle. All 3 youth bands (Texas Brass, Lonestar Brass, and Bluebonnet Brass) and 2 creative arts ensembles (Contact and The Cast) will rehearse on Saturday from 9 am – 3 pm with lunch provided. There will be no rehearsals on Friday night, but those traveling long distances are welcome to stay at camp. The cabins fill up quickly, so please stay at camp only if it is absolutely necessary. Members from within the DFW Metroplex should plan on arriving Saturday morning.
In order to make the appropriate arrangements at camp, please e-mail me the names of those from your corps that will be arriving on Friday by Wednesday, January 9
Also for those arriving Friday, please have your drivers drop off all young people in front of the conservatory no earlier than 8:00 pm. Our staff will meet them there to give further instructions for the evening. This is a measure to make sure everyone remains safe and well supervised while in our care. Thank you for your help in this matter.
Here is our remaining schedule for this season:
January 12 - Rehearsal
February 9 - Rehearsal
March 8 - Rehearsal
April 5-7 - Youth Councils - Texas Brass, Contact, and Lonestar Brass (potentially) only
April 26-28 - Jr Councils (calendar change) - Bluebonnet Brass and CAST only

Thanks so much, and I will look forward to seeing you next weekend!
