Disneyland Discount Tickets Available for EB Performance
Thursday, October 30, 2014 - Ticket Order Due Date

The Emerald Brigade has been chosen to perform at Disneyland on November 16! (It is an honor as not all bands who apply are chosen!) Logistics and details will be coming to you soon.

This week the directors will be telling the students about the upcoming Disneyland trip! What we need at this point is a headcount of students who will be participating so we order the correct number of busses as you might imagine, busses from Poway to Disneyland are not cheap! Please take the next few days to think about if your student will be able to participate. (Band performers get in free!) Your student's section leaders will be asking the students in their section for a commitment by Thursday.

Please take this week to also discuss whether your family would like to join in on the fun! Disneyland has offered us a slight discount on tickets. Disneyland discount tickets must be pre-purchased and will be due on THURSDAY, October 30. If interested, please print the Disneyland Ticket Order Form and have your student drop it off in the "green basket" in the directors' office. Please make your checks payable to PHSMB. Thank you!

A few reminders about our Disneyland tickets:
  • Disneyland performance date: November 16, 2014.
  • Performers (color guard and marchers) do not need to buy a ticket. They will be given a free performer's pass.
  • ALL orders must be in the green basket tomorrow, Thursday, Oct 30 (payable to PHSMB).
  • Tickets are non-refundable.
  • Details of call times etc. will come soon.
Important information needed from parents of Color Guards and Marchers: br>
  • If your color guard student or marcher will not be going to Disneyland, please email Monica Sturhann at mrssturhann@cox.net.
  • If your performer (color guard or marcher) will be performing but will not be riding the bus to and/or from Disneyland please:
    • Send in a signed note with your son or daughters full name letting the directors know that he or she will not be on the bus (specifying to Disney and/or from Disney).
    • Please email Monica Sturhann at mrssturhann@cox.net and specify the same information.
All of the information above will help us reduce the possibility of ordering too many busses! br>
If you have ticket questions, please contact Monica Sturhann at mrssturhann@cox.net.
