March is “Music In Our Schools Month!” While COVID-19 has made many things difficult, musicians and music educators have done whatever it takes to keep the music going. Whether we have to use trash cans or the finest materials available, music in our schools is essential! Thank you to all of our music students and educators who keep the music alive!

Now, please enjoy the NCHS percussion section performing “Talkin’ Trash” by Lamar D. Burkhalter.

"September" by Earth, Wind, & Fire

The NCHS Band recognized Black History Month by rehearsing "September" by Earth, Wind, & Fire. We would like to recognize a few of the many notable black musicians who helped shape music history.

This video also features our two student teachers: Wesley Williams, conductor, and Juan Santos, percussion.

Enjoy, and Happy Black History Month!

[02/24/21]   School starts back in person tomorrow!!! Excited to finally see all of my students! We have a mandatory after school practice tomorrow (Thursday) for all brass and woodwinds. Only percussionists who play on September need to come. See you tomorrow!

Here’s how some of our band members enjoyed the snow... back when we still liked it, that is!

[02/11/21]   After school band practice is cancelled today due to inclement weather and lack of indoor space to fit everyone with social distancing. We will try to reschedule for next week.

Natchitoches Parish School Board

Natchitoches Parish Schools will be closed on Monday, January 11th due to the potential of high impact snowfall this weekend.

Although school campuses will be closed, teachers and students will still attend school virtually. NPSB will be using Monday, January 11, 2021 as a virtual instruction day to ensure our schools do not lose any more of the required instructional time mandated by LDOE.

Work will be sent home for students without access to Internet.

We are in the final week of our fundraiser! In the season of giving, please consider making a small donation to our band program! Instruments, repairs, and supplies are expensive, and every little bit helps! Thank you in advance, and please share this with anyone who you think would be willing to help!

11/26/2020

Thankful for all of our band students and parents!

11/25/2020

NCHS Band and Flag Line students are raising money for our program! We have many needs, such as instrument repair, new instruments, and new equipment. A small donation of $20 could really help us with these needs!

Each student is trying to find 20 people who can make a small donation of $20. If you know a band or flag line student, reach out to them to make your donation! If not, you can contact us through our page for more information.

Thank you in advance for your generosity! Our students greatly appreciate you!

Please share this post!

[10/08/20]   Only old band members need to report for the game tonight. Freshmen and other new members need to stay home. This is for COVID safety as we play under the balcony when it’s raining; it’s not safe to have the whole band in that small of a space at this time. All flag line members are to come to the game.

Game Info:

Where: Home side of Turpin Stadium (NSU), closest to the scoreboard
Call time: 6:00 pm/5:45 pm for tubas and percussion
Game time: 7:00 pm
Pick-up time: 9:30 pm

Materials Check-List:
Instrument
Sticks (percussion only)
Music/flip folder
Lyre
Money for concessions

Attire Check-List:
Plain black face mask (white for drum majors)
Band t-shirt
Jeans (no holes/rips)
Sneakers
School/maroon jacket if needed

See you all tonight! GO CHIEFS!

[09/22/20]   I hate to make this call so early in the day, but with so many virtual students, I feel it is better to make an early call.

Due to weather predictions for this afternoon, the lack of an indoor space where we can socially distance, and the inadvisability of extended indoor playing, today’s after school practice is canceled.

Thursday is predicted to rain in the morning and NOT the afternoon, so we are currently still planning to hold after school practice on Thursday.

I am very disappointed to have to cancel today’s practice, but safety is top priority. See you all Thursday!

Due to the Phase III guidelines, we will have a seating capacity at all our home games. Due to this, there is a process of how tickets will be sold and distributed for our home games. Band and colorguard members will be given 2 tickets per member for their family to purchase for $8 each by Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. These tickets must be paid for by that time or those unsold tickets go to the general admission sales. If you would like to purchase a ticket, contact and turn in money to Mrs. Hudlow.

Season pass holders will have the first opportunity to get a ticket, so if you plan to be at all five games, I encourage you to purchase a season pass. This reserves a seat for all home games in the lower level on the home side and can be purchased for $40 at the school. If you would like a season pass, please email Coach Wilkerson at [email protected]. This is the best way to guarantee a seat at the games.

THIS PROCESS APPLIES TO ALL REGULAR SEASON HOME GAMES, NOT THE SCRIMMAGE THIS FRIDAY AGAINST MANY. For the scrimmage, tickets will be on sale Tuesday – Thursday from 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in the front of the school on a first come, first serve basis. The band and colorguard WILL NOT be performing at the scrimmage. Our first game will be Friday, October 2nd.
