Memorial Day In School Assembly and Monday Concert and Parade
In School Assembly- Friday, May 26 at 8:30 am In this assembly the 4th-8th grade chorus and the 5th-8th grade band will be performing. These students should wear their blue music t-shirt and cool, but school appropriate pants, shorts, Capris, or skirts. These don't need to be a particular color, but students should try and dress "nice" since the occasion is for paying tribute to fallen men and women who have fought for our nation. Please make sure your student is on time to school this day, since we will get going first thing in the morning for rehearsal. Thanks for your help with this.
Out of School Performance and Parade- Monday, May 29 at 1:00pm, arrive at 12:30 In this ceremony, the 6th-8th grade band and 6th-8th grade chorus will be performing. These students should wear their blue music t-shirt and cool and comfortable (but also appropriate) pants, shorts, capris, or skirts. Band students should remember to wear sneakers or other closed toed shoes since we will be marching with the high schoolers. We will be meeting at the gazebo (next to the fire department) at 12:30pm. Please make sure your student arrives with their music and instrument for band. If your student CANNOT make this performance because you will be vacationing or otherwise busy, I need a note either e-mailed to me or delivered to school by Monday, May 22. This way, I can make sure we have enough people to participate and perform and still sound like a full group. Thank you!
Recordings of Spring Concert- If you have any recordings of any parts of the concert, please send them my way. I have a couple but the quality of some isn't what I had hoped. Let me know if you have any.
Chorus Concert- If you are interested in a cool local chorus concert, Spaulding High School will be performing their spring chorus concert tomorrow, Monday night at Spaulding High School in Rochester at 7:00pm. It is free! I'll be there, so let me know if you plan on attending.
Practice Cards- Practice cards are still due weekly for band students. We will be ending them soon and I'll let you know.
8th Grade Graduation Chorus Performance- The entire 6th-8th grade chorus will be performing at the 8th grade graduation ceremony on Monday, June 19. More details coming soon, but please pencil this date in.
