Winter Band Concert

Monday, Dec. 6th, 7:15pm

You're Invited!

We look forward to seeing everyone at our annual Winter Band Concert, this year being held at the Austin ISD Performing Arts Center. Our own theater on LASA campus is not large enough for our band program and families.


A few students will help us move needed equipment from LASA to the AISD PAC after school. Then, starting at 5:30pm, the various groups will do brief dress rehearsals on stage.


Doors will open at 6:45pm

Concert will be begin at 7:15pm

Estimated end of the concert is 8:45pm

Transportation

Students are generally encouraged to provide their own transportation, especially Wind Ensemble since they will be the first group to do their dress rehearsal.


However, 2 buses will pick up from outside the band hall at approximately 5:30pm to drop-off at the PAC around 6:00pm.


Basic timeline of departures from LASA:


  • 4:30pm - Wind Ensemble and some Percussion
  • 5:00pm - All others NOT riding the buses
  • 5:30pm - 2 buses depart from LASA (approximate time, depends on buses)


ALL STUDENTS SHOULD BE PICKED UP FROM THE PAC AT THE END OF THE NIGHT!
