Westfield High School Concert Program - Winter 2022:
Indoor drumline (IDL) is almost here! Indoor drumline you ask? How can one march indoors and what the heck is it anyway? IDL is, according to Wikipedia, a "type of marching ensemble consisting of the battery and front ensemble instruments. It differs itself from a traditional percussion ensemble by not only on musical performance, but on theatrics and marching." If you’ve never seen an IDL Performance, here is Westfield in action last year at the AIA Championship in Hampton. For those of you interested in joining IDL this year, "tryouts" are this week as follows:
Tuesday 15th (Battery/Drums only) 6 - 9 pm
Thursday 17th (Front Ensemble only) 6:30 – 9 pm
Tuesday 22nd (Both groups) 6 – 9 pm
It's a load of fun and you don’t have to be a percussionist to join! Email Merold Saffa for more info.
Winter guard is basically color guard but in the winter without the band. We spin flags, rifles, sabres, and other equipment in a three to four minute show. Winter guard goes from December to late March/early April. Throughout the season, we build technique, develop performance skills, and learn choreography for the show. Practices are in the evenings on Mondays, Wednesdays, and some Fridays. Competitions take place on certain Saturdays in February and March, with finals in early April. Winter guard is a very fun experience, and everyone who's done it has enjoyed it and learned many new skills. If you or anyone you know is interested in joining, email email@example.com and/or firstname.lastname@example.org

Parents, Students and Band Fans!
The Spiritwear store is now officially open for business and closes on Monday, August 15 at midnight.
This is your chance to purchase your band merch for the year. We only open the store once a year, so please get your orders in if you are interested.
This is a great opportunity to get some early Christmas Shopping done!
The polos are the parent uniform for chaperones and pit crew, so if you are planning to support the band we ask that you purchase a polo. With that exception all merchandise is optional. Don't forget some cold weather gear for later in the season. The long sleeve T-Shirts are great for under the uniforms once the weather gets cool. PJ Pants and sweats would be nice for the plane ride to Hawaii or bus rides to competitions.
You will place your order and pay the vendor at the link above. They will ship orders to me and I will distribute them to the students at band practice. Anticipated delivery is approximately 3-4 weeks after the store closes.
Please be aware – Due to supply chain limitations there may be a limitation on some sizes of certain items. While all items were available when we set up the store, orders are not final until the store closes on Monday August 15. If the vendor can’t get your item they will cancel your order for that item and refund your money.
Please contact me at email@example.com if you have questions
