Posted on Oct 11, 2021

October 11 2021

The Cadets of Waukesha West are coming off a first place finish Saturday, October 9 at the Milton High School and a second place finish Sunday, October 10 at Mukwonago High School. The season is rapidly coming to a close but this last week is full of activities.

On Tuesday, October 12, Color Guard and all percussion rehearse. from 5:45pm to 9:00pm with percussion released an hour earlier, at 8:00pm. Tuesday evening is also a band fundraiser at Culvers restaurant on Sunset Drive in Waukesha. From 5:00pm to 8:00pm a portion of money spent goes to Waukesha West Bands. Culvers is a frequent sponsor and great friend to the West Community. So please consider eating there Tuesday evening. As Mrs. Granzow said: “Having TREBLE thinking of what to make for dinner during such a busy band week?” The flavor of the Day is Devil’s Food Cake. That may be more convincing than the bad joke ūüôā .¬†

Wednesday, October 13 is the last Wednesday night band rehearsal. Parents and friends, please attend at 8:40pm to watch the final Wednesday night run through. Let’s pack the stands!!!!

Friday, October 15 is the last home football game for 2021. The Cadets will perform at halftime and during the game. Please come out and cheer the football team and marching band!

Finally, Saturday October 16 is the 2021 WSMA State Marching Band Competition at the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater. Waukesha West performs at 1:15pm! If you plan on attending purchase tickets in advance and parking tickets in advance to save a little money and time. Also, all indoor facilities at UW-Whitewater require masks.

As you can see, it is a huge week for the Cadets and we wish them the best as they wind down the 2021 marching band season.
