HIGH NOTE FESTIVAL & SIX FLAGS TRIP

FRIDAY, MAY 6, 2016

A FUN, MUSICAL DAY AHEAD

The Middle School Band, Choir and Orchestra will be participating in the High Note Music Festival on Friday, May 6, 2016. The day will begin with the music festival; the students will perform for a professional evaluation at Edgewood Middle School in Highland Park, IL. The evaluators will critique our band, chorus and orchestra, and apply a rating of superior, excellent, good or fair. That afternoon and early evening, the students will experience the fun and excitement of Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, IL.


The cost of the event is $57.95 per student. This fee includes admission to Great America, a music critique by professional adjudicators, and an award to be displayed at school.


This year’s fee also includes a Pleasantdale Music T-shirt to be worn to the festival and Great America on May 6th! Please visit the following link to order your shirt(s):

We are looking for parents who would be willing to help chaperone this event. Chaperoning involves riding the bus with the students and being in charge of a small group of students while at Great America (no more than 10 students per group). The fee for all chaperones is $36.00. Chaperones are welcome to purchase a t-shirt; please add $8.95 for a total of $44.95.


Pleasantdale has successfully participated in music festivals the past several years. Please clear your calendar for this date! This is our big “post-season” performance of the year!The festival is a positive musical experience that combines education and recreation. We will be performing at Edgewood Middle School in Highland Park, IL sometime in the morning. When we are informed of our performance times, we will forward them to you. Then we will spend the rest of the day at Great America, completing our day there with the awards ceremony. We will be returning to Pleasantdale around 6:30 PM. We will be sending more specifics on the trip as the day gets closer. If you have any questions regarding the trip, please contact Mr. Bell or Mr. Tatina at school.
