We will need to load the truck around 7:15 am so we can be on the road by 8:00 am. We will need to carpool, so we will need drivers, much like last weekend. Students will need to wear purple and black, no t-shirts, no jeans, no tennis shoes and no yoga pants. This is a more formal event, please dress accordingly.


We need to be unloading by 10:00 am so Sizzle can get a warm-up in. 20 minutes prior to each performance the performers should be making their way toward their performance room. Percussion has performances from 11;02-3:30 with an hour off for lunch.


We usually try to eat lunch together at the Heidleberg, so bring money for lunch. We will need everyone to help with equipment so plan on staying and supporting your class mates.


Only the students who perform in Sizzle, Moonrise and The Winding River will be performing as ensembles, as they were awarded a rating of a I at District Solo and Ensemble. Solos are Kristin Gummersheimer and Caitlin Jackson.
