Are you ready?!? The 2015 season officially gets under way during the weekend of January 3-4. Rehearsal will begin at 2:00 on Saturday with all LVW members gathering in the auditorium for the welcome from the staff, opening announcements, and an overview of the two-day rehearsal. We will conclude all of our activities by 4:00 PM on Sunday afternoon. Please check with your school’s director/LVW coordinator for travel plans to and from the rehearsal.
Please tell your friends about this post! Make sure everyone checks out this info.
Please RSVP for the camp, even if you are unable to attend January 3-4 but intend to participate in 2015. The RSVP is located on the LVW homepage.
If you have not yet registered for LVW 2015, please also do that so we can adequately plan for meals, equipment, etc.
Here are a few items that you will need to know for the camp:
When you arrive at FVL, we will designate a location for your overnight gear/luggage/cases etc. We will give you instructions for moving your gear to the sleeping locations after the opening announcements.
Pack a brown-bag supper for Saturday evening. Sunday breakfast/lunch will be provided by LVW. You will not need to bring any money for the meals - they are included in your fees for the year. There will be lemonade/Gatorade/water available. We prefer that you do not drink soda (pop) during LVW rehearsals.
We will be attending Saturday evening worship at Mount Olive Lutheran Church in Appleton. Casual clothes are acceptable for this worship service.
You will need to pack an overnight bag with a change of clothes, overnight gear (Sleeping bag/blanket/pillow/air mattress/etc.), personal items (towel, soap/shampoo, deodorant, etc). We will be sleeping overnight at FVL.
For marching rehearsals, you will need to have comfortable shorts or sweats. Please don’t wear “jeans” for marching/visual rehearsals. You will also need a pair of tennis shoes for use on the gym floor.
Don’t forget your instrument! If you will be using an LVW instrument (mellophone, baritone, tuba), you will need to bring your own mouthpiece. Reed players, please make sure you have a few working reeds for the weekend.
You will be given your music and other LVW equipment on Saturday.
Check back to this page occasionally. There may be more updates before the weekend.
