Concert/Symphonic Band Preview Concert
What: Our 8th Grade Bands will be competing in a band competition during a field trip on March 2nd. Since most parents can’t see this performance, we are doing a preview concert so you can see what the kids have been working so hard on. We’re also going to invite a panel of mock judges to give us commentary to get better before the trip.
When/Where: Sunday Feb. 25th. Students arrive at 7. We will begin at 7:20. The concert should be done by 8pm
Attire: Attire for this concert will be casual. (school appropriate of course, also no short skirts or dresses)
Attendance: This is the only chance we get to put this music together for an audience before the competition. Attendance is required for all 8th grade band members.
