Sloan Creek Orchestra Newsletter

Tomorrow evening is our DSO Trip! All tickets have been passed out, we have held on to tickets for those students that are planning to ride the bus. The buses will depart from WILLOW SPRINGS MIDDLE SCHOOL at 5:45 p.m. Students should arrive no later than 5:30 p.m. Please be sure that they have eaten a good dinner since we are not providing food. Students are allowed to bring a bottle of water and snack for after the concert if they need it, they will just have to leave it on the bus because it is not allowed in the Meyerson.

Our next performance is at the Fine Arts Festival on Saturday, December 3rd. The concert will begin with the SCIS orchestra at noon. Students are to be on stage at 11 a.m. to be tuned and have our one and only rehearsal all together before the concert. Students are to wear nice dress clothes and are more than welcome to wear holiday hats.
