Time for the 5TH AND 6TH BANDS AND CHOIRS WINTER CONCERT!!!!! This note is just a friendly reminder that this year’s Winter Concert is Wednesday, December 12, with a start time of 7:00pm, and that all 5th and 6th grade students are required to attend as part of both their Band and Chorus/Music grades. This year’s Winter Concert should be a lot of fun, and I hope you are looking forward to it as much as your students and I are. The following information is important, with some new and some review, including a reminder on attire and call time information.
Call times are important to get the groups’ voices and instruments warmed up, thinking about the concert, and focused. It is also a time for last-minute reminders, announcements, etc. It is important that ALL students are on-time, in the room, and ready to go at these times to help the evening run smooth and keep everyone organized and focused. Call times to warm up, with students meeting in the band/chorus room upstairs, will be as follows:
6:10 – 6th Grade Band
6:20 – 5th Grade Band
6:30 – 6th Grade Chorus
6:40 – 5th Grade Chorus
6:55 – All in seats
7:00 – Concert Begins!
And, as was sent home in the August letter with the concert date on it, the concert attire is as follows: 1. A solid Red, Black, or White shirt (NO stripes, patterns, etc, please). 2. Good pants (no rips, holes, tears, please) and 3. Good shoes. If acquiring any of these has been or will be a problem, please see Ms. Simmons immediately.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review this information. I think it is safe to say that your students are excited to show off what we have been taking time to work on for you, and I hope you are just as excited to see and hear what they can do. If there is ever any question or concern about anything relating to the concert, please do not hesitate to contact me via the information below. Thanks again, and I’ll see you Wednesday, December 12, at 7:00pm, for the 2012 Winter Concert!
