Notes from the Band Room
Week of October 4, 2021
Fall Band Concert: Tuesday, October 5
When: Tuesday, October 5, 2021at 7:30 pm **TIME CHANGE**
Where: Prairie View Gymnasium
Who: Prairie View 6th and 7th grade bands
Report Time: All students need to report to their warm-up location no later than 7:10 PM on the night of the concert. We will warm-up and head to the stage as a group so it is very important that students arrive on time and ready to go.
What do I wear? There is no band uniform this year. Students should dress nicely for concerts. Please avoid clothing that has rips, tears or holes. Please also make sure that any writing on shirts is school appropriate.
Attendance: Concert attendance is a Sun Prairie Area School District Music Department proficiency statement and does appear on each student’s report card. Students are expected to stay at Prairie View for the entire concert. Once the 6th grade band has finished performing, students will be seated in the audience to listen to the 7th grade band before being dismissed for the evening. Please get in touch with Mr. Quaglieri ASAP if you have a scheduling conflict.
Additionally, we ask that the ground area in front of the bleachers is kept clear to allow student musicians and audience members with disabilities room to sit.
Fall Concert Webcast
Additionally, a recording of the performance will be available on the PVMS Band YouTube channel for the remainder of the year. We will send a direct link to this video once it is available.
Concert Attendance Policy
Student participation in concerts is vital to the success of all the students involved. Please make every effort to have your child be a part of these experiences. Sporting events/practices and other extracurricular activities are not acceptable reasons to miss a performance. We are happy to talk to coaches & organization leaders to help navigate scheduling concerns as long as we have prior notice. If you have a reason to miss any performance, please contact your teacher as soon as possible prior to the concert date.
If you are unavailable during the scheduled conference times but would still like to meet with us, please reach out and we will be happy to schedule an alternate appointment.
Jazz Band is Starting Soon!
Additionally, students who have already received at least one year of prior instruction on string bass, guitar, and piano are invited to be a part of the rhythm section. If your student is interested in a rhythm section instrument, please have them get in touch with Mr. Quaglieri.
Jazz band will meet after school on Fridays and an activity bus will be available to bring students home after rehearsal. There will be an informational meeting for all interested students after school on Friday, October 15. Anyone who would like more information is encouraged to attend this no-obligation meeting.
