To the Friends and Supporters of the Boonville Silver Pirate Band: Due to the current guidelines and restrictions to protect the health of all community members, we must inform you of upcoming events that have been cancelled. Once daily activities return to normal, we will do our very best to find a way for the bands, soloists, and small ensembles to perform. Students learn and create music on a daily basis for individual growth and development, but also to ultimately share special musical experiences with their families and community audiences. Sincerely, Mrs. Pirtle and Mr. Donnelly BHS Band — Cancelled events as of 3/16/2020 March 21: MSHSAA District Solo & Small Ensemble Music Festival March 25 & 26: MSHSAA State Large Ensemble Festival for Bands and Orchestras March 28: Boonville Band Concert, “An Evening at Thespian Hall” May 2: State Solo & Small Ensemble Music Festival For your information — We received this email 3/16/2020 at 3:09 p.m. from the Executive Director of MSHSAA Re: MUSIC FESTIVALS “In addition, we regret that we are canceling the remaining district solo/small ensemble, large group, as well as the State solo/small ensemble festivals. This is due to the inability to keep or secure host sites for the events, as well as the availability of adjudicators and accompanists. We have only completed two of the twenty District festivals at this time and it has become apparent that it will not be possible to complete the district festivals due to the inability to control and/or restrict attendance at these events within the CDC guidelines. Alternative methods of submission were discussed but found to be lacking in consistency and suitability to maintain a valid process.” — Executive Director of MSHSAA
Good afternoon Boonville Music Department students and families, We just received the following message from the Missouri State High School Activities Association: “Due to concerns for the health and safety of our student performers, spectators, accompanists, directors, adjudicators, and staff, MSHSAA is suspending all district solo/small ensemble and state large group music festivals through March 21, 2020. Our office will continue to monitor the situation and determine how best to proceed with the festivals in the upcoming weeks.” This decision impacts us because March 21 was the day for our District Solo/Small Ensemble at State Fair in Sedalia. We will keep you informed as we are notified of any additional changes to upcoming festivals and concerts. Thank you, Kim Pirtle, Kyle Donnelly, Warner Bailey Band and Choir Directors
