Dear band student and parent,

Our Grand Holiday Concert next Thursday, Dec. 20th is just around the corner!  This is our “grandest” concert of the year, featuring all of our concert ensembles!  It is a concert that draws many band alumni and features many favorite “sounds of the season.”  Despite the many groups performing, the show will move along quickly!  Plus, the concert is FREE and refreshments will be served at the conclusion. 

Here’s what you need to know concerning the happenings associated with the concert:

Thursday, December 20
6:15pm  All groups report to warm-up
Concert Band in band room
Symphonic Band in chorus room
Wind Ensemble in cafeteria

7:00pm  Concert begins

9:15pm Concert concludes/Holiday refreshments served!!!

Concert Band students will wear formal black & white:  a white dress shirt/blouse and black pants/skirt.  Guys will be given an orange and blue tie to wear when they arrive on Thursday evening.  (We’ll have some folks around who know how to tie the ties!)  They must also wear black dress shoes with black socks (marching shoes may be worn if necessary).  For girls, all hems/slits must be below the knee and all shoulders must be covered.  You may wear black leggings if the skirt is above the knees.   

Symphonic Band & Wind Ensemble students will wear their formal attire (tuxedo/dresses).   STUDENTS WHO DO NOT ADHERE TO THE DRESS CODE MAY NOT BE PERMITTED TO PERFORM.

Your support means a great deal to the students.  We look forward to sharing some great music with you!


P.S.:  Although it is a “school night,” students and parents are highly encouraged to stay until the conclusion of the program.  Each ensemble is terrific, and the refreshments & comradeship enjoyed after the concert is really special!
