JMB Los Angeles Tour Informational Meeting

posted Nov 28, 2017, 3:13 PM by Jefferson Bands

Welcome to the Jefferson Jaguar Marching Band. We hope you will consider joining our ensemble in the fall of 2018. 

The marching band begins in mid-August with evening rehearsals, and once school begins, practices from 3-4:30pm most school days through October. The ensemble is open to all Bloomington 8th grade and high school students who are enrolled in their curricular band program. The ensemble performs at Jefferson home football games, school rally events, the Minnesota State Fair, and tours nationally every-other year. In the fall of 2018, the Jaguar Marching Band will be touring Los Angeles, California to perform in the Hollywood Christmas Parade and at Disneyland’s Magic Kingdom. 

This year’s invitation to join comes a bit early, as we have an important Los Angeles tour meeting on Tuesday, December 12th, at 6pm in the Jefferson High School auditorium. All interested families are encouraged to attend, as travel commitments need to be secured in early 2018. Please note that the Marching Band tour is in no way expected. Students may participate in the band for the entire regular season without having to participate in the tour. Please see the linked TOUR INFORMATION DOCUMENT along with the full TOUR ITINERARY to learn more about travel with the Jefferson Band Program.
