Orchestra Parent Meeting and Registration Night

Thursday, Sep. 1st, 6:45pm

Lovejoy High School Band Hall (F113)

This will be a quick parent meeting to take you through the year. We will be discussing concerts, supplies, grading, etc. You will also be able to order your child's orchestra shirt before you leave. Please mark your calendars to attend!

Boys Shirt Exchange

Orchestra boys are required to wear pleated wing tip tuxedo shirts during their performances. The average shirt is only worn twice a year! The shirt typically costs $30.00.

Since our boys grow quickly, shirts are purchased almost every year. This venue will give you an opportunity to sell, buy, or donate a gently used shirt! If you are selling the shirt, list the price and size including youth/adult size. If you find a shirt you want, please contact the parent below to make the transaction. ONCE YOU'VE SOLD YOUR SHIRT, EDIT YOUR ENTRY AS SOLD.

If you are donating a shirt to the Lovejoy Booster Club, please send the shirt to your Orchestra teacher and I will make them available on this site. Your child will receive a form for your donation.

Thanks for participating in recycling our shirts!
